The round of 32 draw was quick and Ibiza’s fans didn’t have to wait long to find out who would be the club’s next opponent. The first ball to be drawn was Ibiza’s and shortly after it was revealed that FC Barcelona would travel to Can Misses next week. The match-up will be an historic occasion for the club as well as sport on the island of Ibiza.
Barça, one of Spanish football’s giants and la Copa del Rey (the culés won the trophy on thirty occasions), will visit Can Misses next week in what will be a reward for an island and its people which have longed for a moment like this for many a year. Ibiza’s win against Albacete Balompié, an epic tie which ended in a penalty shoot-out paved the way for what will undoubtedly be a spectacle that will be the hottest ticket in town next Wednesday. Information regarding ticket sales will be released shortly.
