With this news, people love to tackle cup season!
Big jubilation in FC Littau LU and FC Schönenwerd-Niedergösgen SO – The two clubs from the Regional Division II face two heavyweights in the Premier League.
Littau can play the first round against Master YB on the weekend, and the match will be against Nati star Christian Fassnacht and Co on the weekend of August 13-15. Schönenwerd-Niedergösgen gets a duel with FC Basel. They both have the rights of the house as a lower class – and this continues until the semi-finals.
Defending champion Lucerne was drawn to the toughest first-round opponent on paper. The FCL competes in a duel in central Switzerland against the promotion club’s Cham. Encounters between Super League clubs and Challenge League representatives are not possible in the first round, in the second round it is impossible for two Super League players to meet. (mpe)
