Field hockey in Spain crowned two new champions this weekend as both the Copa del Rey and Copa de la Reina finals were played out in Andalucía for the first time.

As part of the celebrations for the 75th anniversary of the Andalusian Field Hockey Federation (RFAH), the province played host to the top eight male and female teams from Friday, when the quarter-finals commenced, through until Sunday when the victors were decided.

The initial round split its clashes across two venues: four were held at the Javier Imbroda sports complex in Malaga city, while the other four took place at El Retamar in Benalmádena. The semi-finals, matches for third and fourth place and the final unfolded at the latter location, the home ground of RH Privé Benalmádena, a second-tier team.

In the men's competition, Polo clinched their thirty-second title after defeating Atlètic de Terrassa, while Club de Campo Villa de Madrid retained their crown, securing their eighteenth Copa de la Reina by overpowering Júnior.

These cups have only ventured outside the regions of Madrid and Catalonia once before, in 2018, when they were held in Valencia.
