Venue for qualifier 2nd leg announced

According to the official Total Network Solutions  FC website, the second leg of the Champions League 1st round qualifier will be played at Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground.

Various options had been mentioned by the club but in the end they have decided to stick with ground they’d already nominated before the draw was made. The ground holds 10,000 fans in seats (the standing area cannot be used in UEFA fixtures) and is also the home venue for Liverpool’s own reserve matches.

The ground was used by TNS when they played Osters IF of Sweden in a UEFA Cup game.

The general manager of TNS, Ian Williams, told the official TNS site: "We have always been very well looked after by the Wrexham officials and we are looking forward to entertaining Liverpool there next month. It is the most convenient choice for both sets of supporters and we are hoping for a full-house."

The date and time of the game hasn’t yet been announced as TNS continue discussion with TV companies, but it must be played on either the 19th or 20th of July. TNS fans are being asked to attend their club’s pre-season friendly at home to Glentoran in order to be able to get a voucher for priority tickets for the qualifying match.
