Brussels’ oldest football club, 11-time league champions, now play in the Belgian second division. The travails of the club are too complex to document here, but the terraces of the Parc Duden are where the true Bruxellois fans, such as the Union Bhoys, stoic and sardonic yet ever welcoming, meet and party with the steadily growing international following known as the United Colours of Union.
Come join the ranks of the “once bitten, forever smitten” in support of our talented but unpredictable team. This is real football, and the only way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Brussels.
Drink beer on the terraces and sing along (in English) with the friendliest, most passionate and knowledgeable fans in the Belgian league. There’s a great (and cheap) clubhouse under the main stand, plus several good bars opposite. Children and dogs welcome, so long as they wear yellow and blue.
It’s a long way from the corporate sterility of Anderlecht or the Premiership.
