The Board of Directors of the Belgian FA has, in agreement with the national coach and coaching staff, decided to accept the proposal of the Portuguese Football Federation to play this match in Leiria, on the same day and at the same time, Tuesday, March 29 at 20:45 (Belgian time).
The Belgian FA appreciates the availability, flexibility and solutions offered by the Portuguese Federation.
The FPF expresses its full solidarity with the Belgian FA in this tough and emotional period.
This afternoon, our Belgian Red Devils will train behind closed doors at the King Baudouin Stadium (16:30). This training session will not be open to the supporters and the press.
At 18:30, our national coach Marc Wilmots will give a press conference at the headquarters of the Belgian FA (Avenue Houba de Strooper 145, 1020 Brussels).
It will be too short in time to allow the Belgians to attend the match in the stadium. The Portuguese Football Federation can’t organize a sale of tickets for this match, but it may be possible for supporters having a ticket for the match Portugal - Bulgaria on Friday to have access to the stadium on Tuesday.
