Storyline

This popular, long-running show was initially about Oscar Crucke, the coach of amateur football team 'F.C. De Kampioenen', who's referred to as "De Kampioen" (The Champion). The series follows the adventures of his family, the chairman and sponsor of the team Balthazar Boma as well as forward Pico, goalkeeper Xavier and their wives. Football unites these people, while the focus is mainly based on their daily lives. De Kampioenen pull together against car dealer Dimitri De Tremmerie - alias DDT - who is better off without the football. Written by Arthur Cnudde

The best Flemish sitcom!
21 June 2004 | by pvhvpSee all my reviews

F.C. De Kampioenen is the best Flemish sitcom ever!

It is not for nothing the longest (in years) comedy sitcom in Belgium!

Everyone knows the persons 'DDT', 'Markske', etc...

On the TV1-Day in Boom, F.C. De Kampioenen were the main attraction of the crowd, they got the most attention.

Marc Scheers (Ex Producer F.C. De Kampioenen, he died in May 2004) Quote1: Kampioenen anno 2003... in spite of who it envies... de kampioenen aren't finished yet.

Quote2: And must the question come how long de kampioenen still will continue, you also don't ask if there will be a news broadcast next year.
