Rupel Boom is now in foreign hands. Spanish investors took over the club. Significant investments will be allocated in the field of youth employment, among others. Boom previously wanted to collaborate with Beerschot in this area, but that was not a successful venture.
In 2019, Beerschot and Rupel Boom began working together to improve youth employment. Young players would be exchanged between the two clubs, but the modus operandi soon became unclear.
Birchot blamed Boom for not placing the artificial turf fields in time and after five months the collaboration ended. Subsequently, Pom put Berchot into default due to unfulfilled promises. In short, it wasn’t a pretty story. Boom has now found a new partner to stimulate youth action. In fact, it is a complete takeover of the club.
