Vincent Kompany has formed a new club with a mission to give back to the youth of his native city. BX Brussels was formed with a huge emphasis on engaging with and seeking influence from the community.
In an open letter on the clubs website Kompany states:
“The club has to be carried by the fans, the present and future ones. They have to become the beating heart of the club.”
The name and the colours were decided after a call for entries and an incredible 3,568 votes in two weeks. After debate on Twitter the club colours black and white were chosen.
