Sclessin under high tension: uncertain whether Standard’s match against Westerlo can continue tonight
--

Silence before the storm. Sclessin is preparing for what could be a very restless evening. The Liège hard core is planning protest actions against the American owners 777 Partners. Whether the match can go ahead as planned is highly uncertain.

Players and staff who are not paid, disgruntled suppliers who send their cat, a transfer ban after a missed interim evaluation by the licensing committee and an American owner (777 Partners) who remains silent. These days it is doom and gloom on the banks of the Meuse near the Rue de la Centrale.

It is nothing new that the Liège supporters are fed up with their American owners. They have been campaigning against 777 Partners all season. But given recent developments, it is not surprising that they are now stepping up their protest. In a statement shared on social media, the Standard Ultras call on all supporters to protest at the stadium from 5 p.m.

There are already a number of banners hanging at the gates of the stadium with unmistakable messages such as ‘Fuck 777’ and ‘777 Go Home’. What will happen later in the evening is unclear for the time being, but it sounds from Ultra circles that tonight’s match against Westerlo may not even take place. For example, there are plans to block the Liège players bus at the gate of the Liège training center.
