Giels Brouwer, CEO of SciSports: “The cooperation with another Belgian club is great news for SciSports. I am convinced we are able to support KV Mechelen in reaching one of their main goals for coming season: get promoted to the competition level where they belong. KV Mechelen achieved their biggest success by winning the Europa Cup II with a Dutch coach and some great Dutch players. That’s why it makes me proud to co-operate with a legendary club with a strong Dutch connection like KV Mechelen.”
