Fans of Brussels’ football team RSC Anderlecht can cheer for their team in the Lotto Park stadium again.

On 3 September, Anderlecht announced that fans could return to the stadium for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic, for the team’s three home matches in September, starting with the match against Cercle Brugge on Sunday.

Walloon and Flemish Ministers of Sport Valérie Glatigny and Ben Weyts approved the protocol presented by RSCA and the municipality of Anderlecht that allows a return of fans to the Lotto Park, said Tuesday the cabinet of Valérie Glatigny.

This return of the fans concerns season ticket holders, who will have to respect the security rules. Wearing a mask and respecting the safety distances will be mandatory in and around the stadium and the entrances and exits will have to be controlled.
