Standard – FC Bala Town, Thursday, having been decreed behind closed doors, Liège supporters will be able to make their comeback in Sclessin on Sunday (4 p.m.) against Kortrijk. But they will not be 10,000, as was envisaged in the agreement concluded at the end of August between Willy Demeyer, the mayor of Liège, and Bruno Venanzi, the president of Standard. The plan was a little too ambitious and was revised downwards, on the basis, as desired by the competent minister, of bubbles of 400 people per (sub) event. As a result, 7,500 fans will take their seats in the stands of the Maurice Dufrasne stadium, including in the two blocks usually reserved for visiting supporters (who will not be there). This means, on the basis of the 22,000 subscriptions passed, that a subscriber will be able to attend one in three matches. Or a little more if the Ultras and the PHK maintain their refusal to go to the stadium in the name of the principle of “everyone or nobody”.
In the meantime, in consultation with the Rouches Family, a procedure has been organized, which those who wish to attend Standard-Kortrijk will have to follow to the letter (see on Standard.be). What to remember? That each subscriber benefit from a priority period, from this Tuesday 8 p.m. to Thursday 8 p.m., in order to reserve his seats. Clearly, the principle of first registered, first served will prevail, knowing that during Zulte Waregem’s visit the following week, priority will be given to those who could not attend Standard-Kortrijk. Even if the figures will be reassessed according to the evolution of the health situation.
