33 socially active clubs

The increase in the number of socially active clubs in the lower leagues in 2013 was one of the priorities of the Football+ Foundation. We are pleased to observe that 33 clubs from D2 to P4 have followed the movement. Last year, they all joined the "+" state of mind and have been active as socially engaged football clubs. The search for blood donors, road safety actions, language lessons for young foreign players, etc are only a few examples of the interesting initiatives that have been taken by the 33 + clubs last year.

Handover for action on road safety between SK Berlare and Tempo Overijse

During the match Tempo Overijse - SK Berlare, Berlare passed the torch of the action around road safety to Overijse. This action has been very successful in previous years in Berlare, thanks to e.g. the investment of football clubs SK Berlare and SKV Overmere. Forza Tempo, the community cell of Tempo Overijse, takes over the action and this was officially celebrated.

Football clubs who share succesful social actions: a + for football and society!

Gay or straight, it does not come into play!

The Flemish Minister for Equal Opportunities Pascal Smet presented his action plan against homophobia on Wednesday, December 11 at the headquarters of the Belgian FA. A new action plan has been developed with initiatives to more openness and tolerance towards homosexuals. Our Federal President François De Keersmaecker also attended the presentation of the action plan. Different points of the action plan are part of the struggle against homophobia because we are convinced that football should be fun for everyone.
