Copa del Rey draw to be redrawn after error

July 31, 2018 0 By Campbell Finlayson

The draw for the first and second rounds of the Copa del Rey was made at the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) headquarters in Madrid, but will have to be redrawn after an error in the process.

Unionistas de Salamanca and Teruel were both made exempt from the first round with rules stating that five of the 23 teams from Segunda and Segunda B are to be exempt from the first round but those two sides were in the fourth tier and wrongly not included.

The original draws were;

First Round:

Club Rápido de Bouzas – SD Compostela

CF Fuenlabrada – CDA Navalcarnero

CD Mensajero – CF Internacional de Madrid SDL

SCD Durango – CD Tudelano

CD Mirandés – SD Gernika Club

UP Langreo – CD Calahorra

UD Logroñés – RS Gimnástica de Torrelavega

Barakaldo CF – UD Mutilvera

Ontinyent CF – UE Sant Andreu

CD Ebro – UB Conquense

UE Conrnellà – UD Poblense

CF Badalona – CD Castellón

UCAM Universidad Católica de Murcia CF – Marbella FC

However these ties are invalid and will be redrawn but no date for this has yet been set.

A date has been set though for the final of this year’s tournament with that game to be played on Saturday May 25th 2019. This was decided on Monday by the RFEF with the final matchday of the La Liga season to be played on the 18th and 19th of May.
