ALTIUS and Tiberghien lunch debate: Quo Vadis, Belgian Football?

Operation Zero, a criminal investigation into corruption and financial fraud has shaken Belgian football to its core. A dawn raid on clubs, football agents, journalists and referees has led to several arrests, with several protagonists currently remaining in custody. Subsequent football leaks revelations have done little to ease the general mood. Time for a round-up and debate on the challenges faced by Belgian football and the prospective solutions.

The following topics will be debated:

•The current tax and social security regime for professional footballers and clubs (D. Buylaert, Tiberghien, and S. Demeulemeester, ALTIUS)

•The draft Bill revising benefits for sport clubs (R. Deseyn, Member of Parliament), followed by panel discussion

•Intermediaries: current legal and regulatory framework and envisaged changes (A. Vantyghem  and N. Verborgh, ALTIUS)

•Operation Zero: the tax implications for affected clubs – tax and ethics in a new era (D. Buylaert and V. Vercauteren, Tiberghien)

•Operation Zero: football, (big) money and its excesses (M. Dantinne, ULg and G. Ernes, ALTIUS)
