KAS Eupen is looking forward excitedly to its Pro League fixture against its neighbour, Standard Liege. On Sunday evening, the black-and-whites are up against Standard Liege in the Kehrweg Stadium. The high level of advance ticket sales points to full stands and a great atmosphere. After two away defeats, Jordi Condom’s team wants to put in a good performance, helping it back onto the road to success.
Jordi Condom: “We’ve put in a lot of hard work, and now we want results”
KAS Eupen and Standard Liege will be marching out onto the pitch under similar conditions: both have gotten off to a bad start on the new season, with Eupen clocking up just 3 points and Liege 5. Both teams completely restructured their teams in the summer and are having problems welding the new teams together. This means that Sunday’s match offers both teams the opportunity to make up for lost ground. “For the first time this season, we’ve been able to spend the whole week preparing for our next match with (almost) the whole team”, said KAS head coach Jordi Condom at the pre-match press conference. “We’ve put in a lot of hard work, and now we want results. I’m confident that we’ll put up a good show.”
Eric Ocansey injured
Alongside Diallo and Abdulkarim Fadlalla, Eric Ocansey won’t be in the line-up for the match against Standard Liege due to the sprained ankle sustained in Beveren. The minor injuries of Damien Mouchamps, Nicolas Verdier and Moussa Diallo are however, in the words of the coach, healed to the extent that the three players will be in the line-up for Sunday.
At least 5000 spectators
Advance ticket sales for the match between KAS Eupen and Standard Liege have gotten off to a flying start, and at least 5000 spectators are expected in the stadium on Sunday evening. Due to the match’s security category C ranking, Standard Liege fans are subject to the combi-rule, i.e. tickets can only be purchased in connection with a bus ticket for the ride to the Kehrweg Stadium.
Advance ticket sales on Saturday, tickets at the gate on Sunday
KAS Eupen fans have their last chance to purchase tickets for the match in advance on Saturday between 10:00 and 13:00 in the Kehrweg Stadium ticket office. Covered seats are in high demand and there are only a few left. The remaining tickets (seats in the open and standing room) will be available at the Schönefeld ticket office as of 18:00.
Please note: No bags or backpacks
Due to the match being ranked as security category C, spectators will not be allowed to bring bags, bumbags or backpacks into the stadium with them. They will have no opportunity to deposit bags at the gate.
There will be many things going on in and around the stadium before the match between KAS Eupen and Standard Liege. At the Schönefeld gate, the KAS Eupen outlet tent will be offering fans the last opportunity to purchase last season’s fan articles from the BURRDA collection at significantly reduced prices. The transparent plastic bags from the outlet tent can be taken into the stadium. Moreover, spectators are invited to take part in the predict-the-result action organised by KAS Eupen in conjunction with its social partner LOVOS in favour of needy people in the region. For those unable to be in the stadium on Sunday evening, they can keep up-to-date with what’s happening on the pitch via the LIVE TICKER on our website and the Radio Sunshine broadcasts straight from the stadium.
