MADRID.- The Vicente Calderon stadium, home ground of Atletico Madrid, has been designated on Monday as the host venue for the 2016-17 Copa del Rey final, which will take place on May 27 between Barcelona and Alaves.

The board of the Spanish Football Federation met at its headquarters in the Football City of Las Rozas, on Madrid's northern outskirts, where it says it took its decision.

A statement said the federation "has decided the Copa del Rey final, which will take place on May 27th between FC Barcelona and Deportivo Alaves SAD, will be held at the Vicente Calderon Stadium in Madrid."

This will be the 14th time the Vicente Calderon hosts the cup final, and the second in a row after last year's edition, which was claimed by Barcelona after defeating Sevilla in extra time.
