All youth, parents and fans are invited to come and watch our cool sports and see our Little League stars in action. The Belgian Little League Championships start at 9:00 on Saturday 3rd of June with an official "Olympic-style" opening ceremony. On Pentecost Monday, the final matches will be played and followed by an official prize ceremony and closing ceremony.
The winning teams, the Belgian Champions, will go on to play at the European Championships LL this summer (in e.g. Poland, Czech Republic or Italy). The overall EC winners will eventually join the Little League World Series in the U.S.A. So there is a lot to play for and the playing level of the Belgian Teams will have to be high!
