Real Betis Win Copa Del Rey In Special Edition Shirts

On Saturday Real Betis Balompie won the Copa del Rey for the first time since 2005, triumphing over Valencia on penalties after a 1-1 draw – and they did so wearing a special edition kit produced by Kappa that was fittingly edged in gold.

It was a different looking Copa del Rey final this year; one that, like the 2019/20 final, stood out for the notable absence of either Real Madrid or Barcelona, with either team having featured since 2010. But this year’s rendition was played out between Real Betis and Valencia, and it was the former team that was able to claim the victory following a tense penalty shootout (is there any other sort?), and the victory ensured that the special, limited edition shirt that they wore for the occasion will instantly achieve cult status among fans.

The Copa del Rey final shirt was produced by Kappa, and it built on the look of the club’s special edition kit that was released earlier in the season. That design took the classic white and green stripe look and then included the names of the club supporters that chose to donate their season ticket payment to the club during the Covid Pandemic, covering the whole jersey in a sublimated design.

So the template is very similar here: same stripe arrangement, same classic collar, and same brand positioning on the shoulders. But from there it’s switched up, with the branding and sponsor appearing in gold for a look fitting of the final. The sublimated names that covered the previous special edition are restricted to a single stripe that runs over the heart, and it features the names of the current first-team squad.
