Spain’s Copa del Rey to be played in final four format

Spain’s baseball season (División de Honor de Beisbol) should have started on April 4 but COVID-19 spoiled the RFEBS’ (Royal Spanish Baseball and Softball Federation) party. Now the Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) will be played in a final four format in Bilbao.

Dridma | RFEBS: Crónica de la 5ª jornada LNDH Sófbol Femenino ...According to Mundo Deportive (World of Sports), the sports center of El Fango de Bilbao will host the Copa de Rey on September 5 and 6.

The RFEBS has decided to play this final four format with the best four teams of the 2019 season: Champions Marlins Tenerife, runner up San Inazio Bilbao Bizkaia, Astros Valencia and CBS Barcelona.

So in the upcoming tournament, Champions Marlins Tenerife will face last year’s number four CBS Barcelona in the semi-final. Runner up San Inazio Bilbao Bizkaia will face Astros Valencia that finished in third place last year.

In this way, there is more of a playoff atmosphere than last year as Marlins Tenerife finished on top of the standings and won the championship.

The RFEBS has opted for this format in order to avoid the 2020 season to be completely lost as Spain is one of the European countries that were hit the hardest by the coronavirus.
