One more final, the FC Barcelona players had to win the Queen’s Cup champions’ medals themselves after beating Real Sociedad in La Romareda 8-0.

The image of the players parading in front of a bag to collect the commemorative medals without any member of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) or authority giving them to them caused a critical reaction on social networks, something that has already generated controversy in previous editions .

Sources from the RFEF argued that this protocol is exactly the same as that applied in both the Copa de la Reina final and the Copa del Rey final. The delivery of medals to the FC Barcelona footballers after winning the Queen’s Cup of football by their own coaching staff is part of the protocol activated by the Royal Spanish Football Federation, agreed upon with the two teams, identical to the one used in the men’s Copa del Rey, as happened on April 6 in Seville.

It is common that in some tournaments organized by the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) the trophy is presented in the box and it is the delegate of the champion team who distributes the medals in the locker room.

Salma Paralluelo, Barça forward and native of Zaragoza, host of the final, clarified that although the protocol is like this “it would have to be changed.”
