A week after the Waasland-Beveren affair, Westerlo thought he was going all out. It will ultimately not be. This Thursday, the court ruled against the Campinese club in its attempt to appeal in order to climb to D1A. Earlier this week, the club had filed an action for interim relief against the Pro League and the Belgian Union, indicating that it demanded 5 million euros in the event of an undisputed day.
After many weeks of chaos and questions, the championship can therefore start this weekend with the opening match between Brugge and Sporting de Charleroi.
As a reminder, Waasland-Beveren had obtained its maintenance, while the Beerschot and OHL went up to form a D1A with 18 teams.
