Mit dem Premier-League-Klub Crystal Palace hat Fußball-Zweitligist 1. FC Union am Sonnabend zum dritten Mal in Folge (zuvor Celtic Glasgow und FC Sevilla) einen namhaften Gegner bei der Generalprobe für eine Saison zu Gast. Ein Verdienst nicht zuletzt von Nico Schäfer, Unions kaufmännisch-organisatorischem Leiter.
