It was also decided following a meeting between representatives of the two clubs and the RFEF in Madrid on Thursday that the final will kick off at 21:30 local time.

Valencia's Mestalla stadium was also the venue for the last "Clasico' final showdown between Barca and Real in 2011, when the latter won 1-0 after extra-time thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo header.

Last year's final was at Real's Bernabeu stadium, where Real were beaten 2-1 after extra time by arch rivals Atletico Madrid.

Barca have won the cup a record 26 times, while Real have lifted the trophy 18 times.
