The trophies were delivered in the loge of the stadium and went up first Nerea Eizagirre to collect the trophy like subcampeón and, later, Marta Torrejón to go down the title to the lawn and celebrate with the rest of his mates.
However, between so much it had had a set with the medals to the exit of the tunnel of changing room and the players went them taking of the table; without that anybody awarded them. The fact was recorded from the terracings and have won a lot of criticisms by the big differences regarding the Supercopa of masculine Spain celebrated a week before.
