The Sociedad and Athletic Club fans had to wait one whole season for the final to take place, after both clubs refused to take the field last season due to having no fans in the stands.
They both opted to wait in the hope they could play the final in front of their own sets of fans but were told they had to conclude the 2019/20 Copa del Rey tournament before the 2020/21 final in two weeks.
Bilbao will have another shot at Copa del Rey glory on April 17 as they take on Barcelona in the 2020/21 final.
