Eerste Nationale is the new name of Eerste Amateurs. A place has become available there after the promotion of Lierse Kempzonen. Currently three teams seem to be eligible for the place in N1. In addition to La Louvière, it concerns Mandel United and Bocholt.
RAAL now believes that it is entitled to promotion. “We have always been respectful since our return in 2017. We have never been difficult due to the health crisis. Promotion was still possible. Now, however, the club refuses potential injustice and demands a starting place for First National in the season 2020 – 2021 ‘, says the Walloon club.
“If the Pro League had opted for eighteen teams in the Jupiler Pro League a few months ago, La Louvière would undoubtedly have got its place in N1 and we are not talking about the licenses yet.” In addition, La Louvière points to the fact that it had more weighted points than the Flemish competitors and won a period championship in its division. “In any case, the club will take all necessary steps to assert its rights, you can be sure,” La Louvière concludes.
🔴 #Communicated | The move from 16 to 18 clubs in D1A has redistributed the cards. So far, RAAL La Louvière has shown itself to be a “gentleman” in this matter. Today, the Louviérois club refuses to be harmed again.
