The match, which will be the eleventh edition of the trophy, will take place on 6 August at 21:00
The trophy returns to its Andalusian roots of the first three editions
Schalke were the last team to play in the Antonio Puerta Trophy back in 2019, after AS Roma took part in 2017 and Boca Juniors in 2016. With Cádiz' visit, the trophy returns to the Andalusian roots of its first three editions when Málaga, Xerez and Granada visited us in 2008, 2009 and 2010 respectively. RCD Espanyol contested the trophy in 2011, while Deportivo de la Coruña did so in 2012. Two editions in 2014 and 2015 saw Andalusian teams return - UD Almería and Córdoba CF. The trophy did not take place in 2015 or 2018 due to dates not working out, while the pandemic stopped it from being played in 2020 and 2021.
Sevilla have won the trophy in eight of the ten editions, with Granada and Boca Juniors coming out on top in their respective years. The match will take place a week before we start the season away to CA Osasuna, meaning it will be the perfect chance to show our work over the summer to the fans. The match will come included in the season ticket.
