Belgians set for Elland Road
Leeds United have announced that Belgian Jupiler League side Sporting Lokeren will be visiting Elland Road this summer.
The fourth of the pre-season games to be announced, Lokeren, or to give them their full title, K.S.C. Lokeren Oost-Vlaanderen will travel to Yorkshire for their match on the 2nd of August, and is likely to be the last friendly before the League One season kicks off once more.
Ticket arrangements seem yet to be determined, and will be announced in due course no doubt by the clubs official website, Leedsunited.com.
Vital Leeds Opinion: Well KSC Lokeren will prove a fantastic test ahead of the League One season opener a week later. No offence to the Irish League sides but for Leeds, if wishing to be tested, really need to be facing opposition of a higher stature, and a Belgian side that has boasted Jan Koller, and Eiður Guðjohnsen father in their squad at some point, is probably a very good way to do so. Bravo Leeds United!
