MUMBAI: The sports cluster of Sony Pictures Networks India (SPNI) will broadcast the Supercopa De Espana or the Spanish Cup, to be played between Barcelona and Sevilla.
The Spanish Cup will be aired live and exclusive on Sony SIX and Sony SIX HD, on the 15th and 18th of August, at 1:30 am and 2:30 am respectively.
The Supercopa de España will be a two-legged football match-up to be played between the champions of 2015–16 LaLiga, Barcelona, and the runners-up of the 2015–16 Copa del Rey, Sevilla.
Some of the big names who will battle it out on the field to take their team to victory are Messi, Suarez and Pique from Barcelona and Reyes and Coke from Seville.
