It is the eve of the start of the Spanish Soccer Super Cup, although we could really call the Saudi Super Cup, because you already know that the Spanish Super Cup is played in Arabia, because the Federation sold it to that country, which is a dictatorship. where there is no freedom, where human rights are not respected, where homosexuals are persecuted or where women are considered inferior to men in so many facets of life. This in itself is shameful, but at least now the Federation is no longer trying to sell that taking the Super Cup there is going to be an openness, they will have more freedoms, women will live better, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. It is a milonga that nobody believed.
Now the Federation already sells, yes, that a lot of money comes in exchange and that this money is going to be distributed among all Spanish football and that it will even reach the modest … 10,000 euros, 20,000 euros … and that justifies everything. But really in this exile of the Spanish Super Cup, the great victim is you, because you are a fan of Atlético de Madrid, Barça, Real Madrid and Athletic, Real Sociedad, Valencia, Zaragoza, Tenerife, Mallorca whoever you are … if your team plays the final of the Super Cup or the semi-final of the Super Cup, you will not be able to see it live. Unless you are a millionaire and have a lot of money and a lot of time, you will not be able to go to see the game live. And you won’t be able to see it until 2030 because the Federation has sold the Spanish Super Cup until 2029. We are in 2022.
It was said at the beginning that this competition was already dead, that nobody was interested and it was a lie, because the Super Cup filled the stadiums every year in the first leg and in the second leg. And this year, with this format that is more attractive, in Spain it would be tremendous. Imagine what an Athletic de Bilbao – Atlético de Madrid would be like on Thursday in San Mamés or what a Real Madrid – FC Barcelona would be tomorrow at the Bernabéu or at the Camp Nou with 70,000, 80,000 or 60,000 people. The spectacle in the stands would be tremendous, the spectacle in the surroundings, in the city … We have missed all that. All that you have missed. Yes, in exchange for a few million euros for the Federation, which on top of that pays for a non-democratic, dictatorial regime, which does not respect freedoms and which is being whitewashed with the Spanish Super Cup. Does it convince you? Because they are going to tell you a lot of milongas. I’m not really convinced.
