Our story starts somewhere in 2015. A group of friends set up a working group to organise activities to support the footballing youth of KV Eendracht Aalter. One idea followed the other. Numerous events are realised, with two showpieces: Botha WK Dorp Aalter 2018 & Botha EK Dorp Aalter 2021.
In 2018, we exceeded our expectations, and those of all the residents of Aalter and beyond. With the broadcasting of the matches of the Red Devils on a large screen, we put Aalter on its head. More than 17200 people found their way to our football village.
Two years later we wanted to do it again, but due to corona the European Championship was postponed for a year.
In 2021, we tried again: despite all the corona measures, we once again set up our football village. With live broadcasts on VTM Nieuws and VRT NWS, we became one of the biggest in Flanders. A coronaproof fan village, according to the measures in place at the time. What a success.
Our ideas have no limits. Next on our to-do list: an international U9 tournament.
