As a top team, Club Brugge not only has a sportive role to play, but also a very important social role.
Fully aware of its huge impact on society, Club Brugge wishes to offer a positive contribution to the community on a social level. An accessible and open Club is what Club Brugge’s board and staff are working towards, open and accessible to everyone, no matter their heritage, belief or social backgrounds, allowing everyone to apprise and enjoy Club Brugge. Because our Club, that is the largest and warmest football family of our country, all carrying a blue and black heart.
By establishing the Club Brugge Foundation, Club Brugge is taking up its social responsibility, be it local, national, or even abroad. Each year we take up this responsibility by using the force that is Club Brugge to realise projects in the fields of sports, social integration, health and education. And all of this both nationally and internationally, for everyone, with a particular focus on disadvantaged groups. With its Club Brugge Foundation, Club Brugge wants to be a ground-breaking club in Belgium when it comes to social community projects, aiming at establishing Club Brugge as an important social partner in Belgian society.
Walking Football at Club Brugge
At Club Brugge, Walking Football Sessions consist of two parts.
After a good cup of coffee and some talks follows the sports activity. For this, there is a special football variant: Walking Football. In this variant of football, you are not allowed to run and you must play without any goalkeeper. Moreover, the ball must not be above the hip.
Part 1 of the session creates a friendly environment for social activity where people can drink a cup of coffee and have time to chat. Part 2 consists of practical football session, warm up and a walking football game.
Walking Football has never been as popular as today at Club Brugge Foundation.
The team has grown from 6 players at the very start to 22.
In each season, 20 training sessions are being delivered, one session per week. After these 20 weeks, a Walking Football tournament is held.
