Finally, Vincent Manart said goodbye to Club Brugge

Vincent Manart leaves the Board of Directors of Club Brugge. Chairman Bart Verhaeghe acquires shares from Vincent Mannaert.

Chairman Bart Verhaeghe, former CEO Vincent Mannaert, Jan Boon and Peter Vanheke together form Grizzly Sports NV, the majority shareholder of Club Brugge. Chairman Bart Verhaeghe is now buying Vincent Mannaert shares. Manart, the club's CEO between 2011 and 2024, will also leave the club's board. New CEO Bob Maddow will be part of the renewed board.

Moreover, the shareholder structure, in addition to Grizzly Sports NV, as well as Orkila Capital, Dirk Van Tornhaut and Tielt Connection, remains unchanged.

Chairman of the Board of Directors Bart Verhaeghe: “Vincent was with me in the infancy of today's Club Brugge. I look back on the past years with a warm feeling. Having previously announced Vincent's retirement as CEO, this is the next logical step. He will always be welcome at the club. By acquiring Vincent's shares ourselves, we strengthen the Flemish foundations of the club.

Vincent Manart: “It has been an honor to lead Club Brugge as CEO for 13 years. With the sale of shares, I now say my final farewell. I cherish many unforgettable memories and wish my successors, and therefore the entire club, every success.”
