Starting August 14, our U23s will play under the name 'RSCA Futures' in the Challenger Pro League, the former 1B. Our RSCA Futures are one of 4 U23-teams that will play in the second division of Belgian professional football this season. All practical information can be found at the bottom of this article.
Our young prospects will alternate their home games between the Lotto Park (5 games) and the King Baudouin Stadium (6 games).
"We are grateful to alderman Benoit Hellings and the entire city council for their constructive attitude," said Kenneth Bornauw, COO of RSC Anderlecht. "This formula makes it possible, on the one hand, to have the home games of our RSCA Futures always take place in Brussels and, on the other hand, to keep the pitch in the Lotto Park in optimal condition for both the A-team and our U23s."
Brussels alderman for Sport Benoit Hellings is pleased with the contribution of the City of Brussels. "The King Baudouin Stadium will soon undergo a whole series of transformations to meet UEFA standards. Our stadium must continue to play its international role as the home of the Red Devils, but it must also play its regional role to the full by hosting matches of teams and clubs within the Region that are evolving."
RSC Anderlecht will also seize this new era of our young talents to engage the youth of Brussels more closely. That way, the members of many sportive and socio-sportive organisations from Brussels will get the opportunity to attend the RSCA Futures games for free. The club is collaborating with the City of Brussels and Anderlecht to invite these organisations.
