Storyline

This long-running sitcom, arguably Flanders' most popular contemporary comedy, is named "FC the Champions" after the "pub soccer team" of a bunch of acquaintances in a small Belgian town, which are actually quite bad at their sport, soccer, but can't do without each-other, despite the many rivalries, pranks, envy etcetera. Far more action takes place in the pub -also club seat- of the Crucke family and their respective homes then on the field, which is inconveniently close to the nasty garage-manager and owner. Most other major characters are players and their wives, and the sponsor and club president, who owns a sausage factory. Written by KGF Vissers

Another reason to avoid Flemish television
27 August 2006 | by (Antwerp, Belgium) – See all my reviews

FC De Kampioenen's only reason for existence is it's local popularity. It has caused this sitcom to run for over 15 years (and still counting).

It deals about an amateur soccer team with the emphasis "amateur". Every storyline deals with the same subject: some misunderstanding that takes ridiculous (and predictable) proportions, to get resolved in the end.

The show's been running for over 15 years now, and the production probably decided not to change a winning team. Which means that the show has had minor changes over the course of years (besides a couple of actors getting replaced (they nearly all left by themselves rather than being thrown of the show)). The humor hasn't changed a bit over the years and it was already outdated when it first aired in the first place.

I guess you have to be Flemish to get this, and over 60 years old, to enjoy such an old fashioned TV show as this.
