ACT As 1, the umbrella organisation for the various supporters’ groups of Royal Antwerp FC, has recently announced the signature of an agreement with the club, that will see the group enter into the club’s formal decision-making structures. The resulting structured dialogue will be the first of its kind in Belgian football.
Under the terms of the agreement, consultative meetings will be held between RAFC and ACT As 1 every fortnight, and two supporter representatives will be incorporated onto the club’s General Assembly of Associates – a key governance organ of the club. ACT As 1 is also recognised by the club as an official representative supporters’ organisation, and RAFC’s commitment to working together with them is underlined.
