Union Sixty: the equipment supplier for the 125th anniversary and the 2022/23 season
The 2022-2023 season is dedicated to our 125th anniversary as a club. As a tribute to our history, we are launching our own clothing brand, Union Sixty. This name refers to our historic streak of 60 unbeaten matches between 1933 and 1935. Players will play next season with this new branding on their shirts and training kits.
“President, we are not going to lose any more matches”, were words that captain Jules Pappaert addressed President Joseph Mariën. The rest is part of the history of Belgian and international football… A record series of sixty games without defeat in three seasons and three consecutive league titles.
With Union Sixty, we pay tribute to this series of legendary matches and to the team that chained them. Our players will evolve next season with this new brand on their jerseys and training outfits.
Later in the season, you will find out more about our 125th anniversary!
We begin to prepare
Players and staff begin their preparation for the new season today. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, physical and medical tests are scheduled. On Thursday, our trainer Karel Geraerts will work with the group for the first practice on the pitch. The first training match is scheduled for Tuesday, June 28 against Rebecq, there. The other practice matches will be announced this week.
