Vincent Goemaere steps down as chairman of Cercle Brugge after three years and also leaves the Board of Directors


Vincent Goemaere steps down as chairman of Cercle Brugge after three years. The club itself announced this on Saturday morning. Goemaere has been on the Board of Directors since 2013, where he also resigns.

Goemaere became a member of the Board of Directors of Cercle Brugge in 2013 and, according to the club, played an important role in the takeover by AS Monaco, which took place in 2017. Goemaere was appointed as the new chairman in January 2020 after the departure of Frans Schotte, a role he would therefore fulfill for three years.

“During the sporting ups and downs of recent years, he has always been one of the pioneers of the signature fighting spirit from Circle. The slogan never give up Vincent is therefore made for it”, Cercle Brugge states on its website. “The world of football is evolving in an increasingly complex and international context. In recent years, a future-oriented strategy has therefore been developed, with respect for the rich past and with the aim of maintaining and strengthening the position within Belgian professional football.”

For the time being, nothing is known about Goemaere’s successor. “This will be communicated later,” it sounds. “Vincent and the Board of Directors are of the opinion that a new chairman can provide new impulses that can guarantee the long-term success of Cercle Brugge.”

Again fixed value in 1A

In the ten years in which Goemaere was a board member, Cercle experienced a short-lived dip. The Union relegated from the first division in 2015, but promoted again three years later after taking the title in 1B. Cercle Brugge has since become a permanent fixture in 1A again. The club is currently in a good tenth place in the league, the place where it also finished last season.
