Standard de Liège and Liège-Bastogne Liège have decided to collaborate with the aim of promoting these two neighbouring and internationally recognised sporting entities.
The organisers of the Doyenne des Classiques, Amaury Sport Organisation and the RC Pesant Club Liégeois, as well as the management of Standard de Liège welcome this fantastic initiative.
Alexandre Grosjean, Operational Director of Standard de Liège :
"To see two century-old institutions working together that have in common a real popular enthusiasm and a beautiful international fame can only delight us and shows once again that all together, we have everything to gain".
Christian Prudhomme, Director of the Tour de France :
"We are pleased to initiate this unprecedented collaboration between two Monuments of Liège's sporting heritage, and hope by this approach to join forces in order to promote and develop fervour around the Standard de Liège and the Doyenne des Classiques".
Several exclusive competitions will soon celebrate this collaboration.
