Fulham have confirmed that the first leg of their Europa League semi-final in Hamburg on Thursday will go ahead as planned.
The Cottagers' first leg in Germany was thought to be in jeopardy due to the volcanic ash cloud which has engulfed Europe's skies, causing Britain's airports to remain closed until 1am on Tuesday morning at the earliest.
However, a statement on Fulham's website confirmed that the match will take place at the HSH Nordbank Arena.
The statement read: "The club can confirm that its Europa League semi-final match versus Hamburg will take place on Thursday, April 22 as planned."
