The 2022 Copa del Rey is held in Granada, do not miss it!
Do you have plans this weekend? From iNMSOL we propose you a very sporty one: attending the final of the King’s Cup basketball held in our city, Granada!
The competition will take place from 17 to 20 February, an event organized by the Junta of Andalusia and the entire ACB league. Given the importance of the event, ACB and the junta want to ask the Minister of Health for a capacity of one hundred percent of the Sports Palace of Granada. Councillor Javier Imbroda in fact, proposed to the Minister of Health just this Wednesday, to fill the building totally. Indeed, the councilman pushes on the fact of having to play a major sporting event and it would be a shame to stick to the restrictions of February 28. According to the latter, there is a limit of 75% in large open spaces and 50% in indoor pavilions. Since January tickets have been sold as soon as they become available, hopefully there is no need to return the subscription amount to any of the buyers.
The Championship of the King will not simply be a sporting event, but an opportunity to enjoy good music, dance and art in the Fanzone, in the city center. For this occasion, the best teams of the country will face each others and the event planners have also thought of an area dedicated to fans.
