FC Barcelona won the Spanish Super Cup this Sunday and the players had to go up to hang the medals by their own means. Why did the Royal Spanish Football Federation activate said protocol? There is a strong controversy. After the award video went viral, in which the Barça players must go up to look for the medals and hang them without representation from the RFEF, the tweeters made themselves felt on social networks and criticized the lukewarm award ceremony.
In accordance with the RFEF award protocols, and taking into account both the high number of institutional representation, as well as the infrastructures for access to the box from the stadium grass, the Protocol department decided to activate the award ceremony at the box in the same way that it is carried out in the Copa del Rey: delivery of the Cup to the captain of the champion team and delivery of medals to the winning team on the grass/changing room”, published the entity that governs football in Spain. In the middle After the controversy over the award that turned out to be somewhat informal, some Spanish media have recalled that it has not only happened with the women’s team, this seeking to tone down those who point to the RFEF for discrimination against women’s football.
