Perhaps the biggest surprise from the General Assembly on Friday was that Club Brugge U23 may take part in First Division B. Next season. Roeselare is not satisfied, but that arrangement may not be for long either.

In The last news it can be read that this arrangement is in principle only valid for one season. “We have decided to take this opportunity to let young people play,” said Pro League President Peter Croonen.

“Other clubs also wanted to play in 1B – Anderlecht, AA Gent, Racing Genk … -, but we were unable to record any more U23 teams at the moment,” he says. ”
