On 2009 and on 2012 Barça and Athletic fans dedicated whistles to the Spanish anthem
Third final of Copa del Rey between Athletic and Barça in the last 7 years. Vasque and Catalan will play at Camp Nou where before the match and through the speakers will sound Spain's anthem. Either in the 2009 final and the one of 2012 both fans dedicated a loud whitle to the Spanish anthem, with all authorities on the stands.
The president of the Consejo Superior de Deportes (Sports High Council), warned this week that if a similar situation happened there would be sanctions for both teams. the CSD already called both finalists and the Spanish Football Federation. Apparently though, Cardenal's words won't alleviate the reaction of a lot of supporters that will be today at Camp Nou watching the final.
On 2009, at Mestalla (55.000 seats), this situation was lived minutes before the start of the match, with the 22 players on the field and king Juan Carlos I on the stands.
On 2012, Athletic and Barça met again in the Copa del Rey final. Vicente Calderón (54.960 seats) were the scenario of the match where a reduced version (27 seconds) of the Spanish anthem, wasn't saved from the whistles by fans, in this case, with the current king, by now prince, Felipe on the stands.
Tonight a full entrance is foreseen at Camp Nou (99.354 seats) and it doesn't look like supporters that will live the match at the stadium have changed their mind for the Spanish anthem.
