Queen Letizia and Infanta Sofía will attend the football stadium in Sydney next Sunday for the World Cup final to be played by the Spanish team against England, sources from the Casa del Rey have confirmed. The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has also announced this Wednesday the queen’s decision to travel to Australia to attend the historic final where Jorge Vilda’s team will seek to be world champion.
The Queen of Spain will be in the presidential box at the Accor Stadium in Sydney together with the Infanta Sofía. Precisely, Letizia visited the national team on June 27 at the Ciudad del Fútbol de Las Rozas (Madrid), which at that time was preparing its participation in this World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
For her part, the Infanta Sofía is a great fan of football, a sport she has practiced, and this same year she accompanied the king in the Cup final held in Seville. Together with her sister, Princess Leonor, who will begin her military training tomorrow in Zaragoza, she also attended a match for the Spanish team in the European Championship held last year in England.
Spain reached the final after eliminating Sweden 2-1 on Tuesday, while England advanced on Wednesday after beating hosts Australia 3-1. The final between Spain and England will take place on Sunday at 12 (mainland Spain time).
