Pedro Rocha resigned this Wednesday as president of the managing committee of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and has called elections for the presidency, which will be held on May 6. The winner of these elections, designed to exhaust Luis Rubiales’ mandate, must call a new electoral process with a new assembly after the Paris Games for the 2024-2028 Olympic cycle. The new president of the managing committee is Rafael del Amo, who will preside over next Saturday’s Copa del Rey final between Athletic Bilbao and Real Mallorca.

The call will be made official on Friday, April 5 and published on Saturday, April 6. Starting on Sunday, April 7, there will be a period of 5 calendar days for the presentation of candidatures, each of which must have a minimum of 21 endorsements. Next, two days will be established for possible appeals before the TAD, once resolved, the candidacies will be final. Pedro Rocha, barring any surprise, will present his candidacy and will initially have Silvia Parera, daughter of former Barcelona director Antón Parera, as a rival.
