It is anticipated that between 20 and 25 percent of the Cartuja stadium in Seville – which has a total capacity of 60,000 – will be able to attend the matches, meaning that up to 18,000 fans could be at the games.

The 2019/20 edition between Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao will be staged at the stadium on 3 April, with the latter side then taking on Barcelona in the 2020/21 campaign showpiece a fortnight later.
It is believed that ticket will only be sold in the southern region of Andalusia – where the finals are being held – rather than the Basque Country and Catalonia, to stop fans breaking Spanish travel laws due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The final of last season’s competition had been postponed under the premise that both clubs wanted the game to be played in front of fans – it was the first all-Basque derby in the final of the trophy.
Indeed, Athletic even forfeited the opportunity to play in Europe – which they would have guaranteed by winning the trophy – in order to wait for fans to see the occasion.
