Leganés will play the Copa del Rey against Sevilla at the Wanda Metropolitano due to the snowstorm in Madrid. The game will be held this Saturday at 8pm.

This is the full statement of the club

CD Leganés announces that the match that will be played this Saturday, January 16 (8:00 p.m.) against Sevilla FC, corresponding to the round of 32 of the SM El Rey Cup, will finally be played at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium due to the impossibility to play the match at the Butarque Municipal Stadium due to the poor condition of the pitch as a result of the heavy snowfalls suffered in Spain last weekend.

After the conversations held in the last hours with the Royal Spanish Football Federation, Sevilla FC and Club Atlético de Madrid, an agreement was finally reached and the clash will be played in the venue where the rojiblanco team usually plays their games. CD Leganés wants to thank all the parties involved for facilitating this management and especially the Club Atlético de Madrid for their solidarity and total predisposition.
