In the presence of Marijn Devalck, best known as Balthazar Boma from FC De Kampioenen, mayor Tania De Jonge (Open Vld) and alderman Katie Coppens (Samen/Vooruit) cut the ribbon on the occasion of the new synthetic turf field.
The football club did receive financial support from the city of Ninove in the form of a subsidy. “It took blood, sweat and tears from the club, but they did a great job. The chairman can be proud of his people,” said Mayor De Jonge.
Freddy de Tant, ‘PDG’ of the club, received some tips from Boma, ‘PDG of the Boma Vleesindustrie NV’: “It is important to have camaraderie and team spirit”, says Boma.
