Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano stadium will host the Spanish Cup final match between FC Barcelona and Sevilla, both football clubs have agreed.

During a meeting held at the Spanish football federation RFEF's headquarters on Monday, representatives of the two clubs also agreed on April 21 as the date for the title match at Atletico's newly-built stadium, reports Efe.

"I am satisfied. It is good when the clubs meet, review the possible options and a decision is taken. We reviewed it and we think that this is the best stadium and the best date," Sevilla's president Pepe Castro told the press.

This will be the first title match at Wanda Metropolitano since its inauguration on September 16, 2017, and the third consecutive Spanish Cup final to be held at Atletico's stadium.

The 68,000-seat stadium has also been chosen as the venue for the next season's UEFA Champions League final.
