Union will play its European game at the Lotto Park

If Union Saint-Gilloise qualify for the play-off round of the Champions League against Rangers FC, the Brussels side will play at the Lotto Park on Tuesday 16th of August.

After the 2-0 victory in Leuven, Royale Union Saint-Gilloise is playing the return game against Rangers FC this Tuesday evening. If the Unionists are able to defend their lead from the first game, they will advance to the final play-off for the Champions League, where they will take on either PSV or AS Monaco on Tuesday 16th of August.

For that game, Union will not be able to play in their own stadium, which does not meet the UEFA standards, nor at the King Power stadium at Den Dreef in Leuven, where Union played its first match against Rangers FC. Therefore, Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht accepted the request of Union and the RBFA for the match to take place exceptionally at the Lotto Park. All parties are in agreement that the Belgian clubs competing on the European stage deserve to defend their chances in optimal conditions.

Philippe Bormans (CEO Union):

"We are grateful that Anderlecht is willing to make the Lotto Park available. The fact that the two clubs were able to reach an agreement so quickly shows that there is much more that unites us than divides us."
