Sociedad and Athletic to contest Copa del Rey final for the 1st time in history

Published on: 06 March 2020

Real Sociedad and Athletic Club will contest the Copa del Rey final for the first time in history on April 18 at the Estadio de La Cartuja in Seville.

The two Basque rivals have never met in the competition's showpiece before, although there have been three previous all-Basque finals.

The first of those came in 1910 when Athletic beat Vasconia Sporting Club in San Sebastian.

Athletic disputed the second all-Basque final too, losing to Racing Club de Irun - now known as Real Union - in 1913.

Irun were back in the final 14 years later, then as Real Union, and beat Arenas Club de Getxo.

This year, Athletic will play their 40th Copa final while Real Sociedad have made it to the final hurdle six times before.

La Real have lost five of their six finals, beating Atletico Madrid on the only time they didn't come up against Barcelona in it.
