The match on the twelfth day of the Proximus League between OH Leuven and Lommel SK will temporarily – such as with – held on Wednesday evening, kick-off at 20h30. Both teams wanted the match to postpone after the death of OHL-chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, but the third party Union showed himself not satisfied with the new date to be fixed by the Kalendercommissie of the Belgian football association (belgian football association) was presented.
The Thai chairman of OH Leuven, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, was last Saturday night life after his helicopter – with four other occupants – crashed after take-off at the stadium of Leicester City, the club where the Thai is also the chairman. OH Leuven wanted to make the match of Wednesday in the Proximus League against Lommel SK postpone.
Both parties found themselves in the proposal of the Kalendercommissie to the duel at the beginning of december to catch up, but third party Union was transverse. The citizens of Brussels would not want that the winner of the first periodekampioenschap only about a month is known, and did the royal belgian football association the proposal to the party next week Tuesday or Wednesday to catch up. That was again against the meaning of Lommel, which is next Friday – just like all the other teams in 1B – all in action again on the last day of the first periodekampioenschap.
Greet Vanbrabant, director of finance at Lommel, belgium, confirmed the state of affairs to Belga. “We were in agreement with the first proposal to delay, but not with the second. For the moment we’ll the duel tomorrow, be finished, although this is not sure yet. There will in the course of the day had to be negotiated to a compromise.”
