Barcelona Femenino became champion of the Queen’s Cup with a superb victory against Real Sociedad. When they were going to collect the champions’ medals, they were given bags by a club assistant and not by leaders of the Spanish Federation.

This fact went viral on social networks due to the surprise of the female players at receiving the medals in bags and delivered by the same workers of the Catalan club.

“Is this a joke?” said Salma Paralluelo while receiving one of the medals. Although this fact has not only occurred in the female branch, but also in the male category.

This is a method that the RFEF has applied in previous tournaments such as the Spanish Super Cup and the Copa del Rey, giving as an example the finals of 2021 (Barça-Athletic) and 2022 (Betis-Valencia) in which the players were presented with the medals in the locker room by the staff.

It also happened in the Copa del Rey final with Real Madrid against Osasuna and Athletic Bilbao-Mallorca this season.

Barcelona comfortably beat Real Sociedad

Barça, after making good the prediction that gave them as a great favorite to lift the title As champion of the Queen’s Cup, he overwhelmed Real Sociedad and increased his record in the cup competition, winning his tenth title.
