The ball is in the court. After a real BV tournament with four participants last year on the occasion of the fifth anniversary edition of the KDB Cup, which was brilliantly won 4-2 by Team Christophe in front of 1,500 fans against a team put together by 'Smartest Man' Erik Van Looy, we return to the original format.
Retrieved from Friday 9 June It is Aster Nzeyimana and Christophe Stienlet who are the captains with kick-off at 19:00 on the main pitch of third amateur league club KVE Drongen will decide among themselves who can boast a year-long title of 'Best Friends Group and Nicest Sympathisers' of the international U15 youth tournament named after Kevin De Bruyne.
In the past, showbiz stars and former internationals came to the Sint-Gerolfstraat in Drongen, some of them proving to be pretty good kickers. We spontaneously think of Viktor and Marie Verhulst, Kobe Ilsen, Niels Destadsbader, Mathieu Terryn, Guga Baúl, Andy Peelman, Rik Verheye, Kevin Janssens, Michiel Callebaut and Celine Dept but also goalkeepers Matteo Simoni and Jeremy Vandoorne.
The aim of this event is an evening of fun, which will be concluded by an Open Air Party with music by DJ Neon (Tomorrowland). Last year, the organisation of the KDB Cup was able to donate the proceeds of the entrance tickets, which amounted to almost 4,000 euros, to the non-profit organisation Akibu (www.akibu.org). An initiative by Aster Nzeyimana's parents in which they are building a health centre in northern Burundi in Rubuga, among other places.
This time, the non-profit organisation Komok (www.komok.be) on the turn. An organisation founded by goalkeeper Davino Verhulst (Antwerp) and Christophe Stienlet, with the subtitle 'Parents Support Children With Cancer' providing sufficient clarity. Everything is done in collaboration with Kinkerkankerfonds Leuven.
The doors open at 6pm, tickets cost 7 euros and can be ordered via the Eventbrite website at www.eventbrite.com. Do not hesitate as the number of places is limited.
