Chairman BFDA


The BFDA is a newly established association which groups medical associates in Belgian Professional Football (1A & 1B devision). We originate from the VBCC which established for 25 years the foundation in the approach of various football medical injuries. By grouping sport doctors, orthopedic surgeons, physical doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths, performance coaches and others, we aim to act as a platform for knowledge sharing and gathering. We conduct studies, organize conferences and meetings and try to take initiatives related to the medical field.
