In the run-up to the World Cup, together with Gezond Sporten we want to invite (para)medical professionals in football, and other sports, to the Bosuilstadion. On the program we have Prof. Dr. Peter Verdonk and sports physiotherapist Dr. Bart Dingenen who will talk about acute knee injuries in soccer. In other words, a panel consisting of the man with the knife vs. the man with golden hands. Moderator on duty is Stijn Vlaeminck.

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.
