One year

Oppositielid Johan Van den Driessche (N-VA) wanted to know why there is only an agreement of one year was concluded. That is the great uncertainty about the future of the King baudouin stadium and the arrival of the NEO-project.

“No one knows what exactly will happen, therefore, we prefer a contractual obligation of one year”, says deputy of Sports Alain Courtois (MR). A tacit renewal is possible if both parties object to subscribe.
