FC Irlande was set up in 1989 by a group of Irish expats who were playing for a variety of local football teams all over Brussels.
There are six adult men's teams (including two veteran squads) plus a ladies’ side, so there's something for everyone of all ages and ability - not to mention waistline...
Sponsored by De Valera’s pub in Place Flagey and Six Nations in Rue Grétry, FC Irlande train at Nossegem and Melsbroek on Manday evenings.
There is, of course, a social side to the teams with regular events and fund-raising quiz nights. Meanwhile, FC Irlande teams have been known to go on tours as far away as Mexico, so it's fair to say that the lads and lasses are doing their bit for international relations.
