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

very good, but they're slowly turning bad
24 February 2010 | by oldage_BESee all my reviews

FC de kampioenen is something that is very well known around Belgium (the flemish part) If you live here and haven't heard of them you live under a rock, simple. anyways, this series started in 1990, and we're now 2010...which is 20 years. that's rather long...the only thing that bothers me is that the newer ones aren't all too great (and IF you watch a recent one a base your opinion on that one it shouldn't be valid, because the older ones are 100x better) but that's probably because they're running out of ideas. They'll end in 2011, after airing season 21.

so if you start watching them, don't start with the recent ones. ;)
