ATB’s rival in promotion phase will be Racing Santander
ATB will face Racing (Group II champions) in the promotion phase to Second Division A. Manix Mandiola’s team will play the first leg in Santander on 25 or 26 of May, while the home leg at Son Malferit will be on 1 or 2 June. The news was announced after the draw held at the Football City of Las Rozas, headquarters of the Spanish Football Federation in Madrid.
ATB’s sports director, Patrick Messow, said that “Racing Santander are a great team, mythical some would say, and we’re looking forward to playing against this great rival“.
If ATB wins this tie, it will go straight up to the Second Division A; if not, it will still have a second chance for promotion.
