Sportspress.be represents the interests of Belgian sports journalists. It serves professional sportswriters and photographers, but also casual contributors. The association tries to ensure sound working conditions for its members at sporting events. In order to achieve this, Sportspress.be works in partnership with the Belgian Professional Football League, the Royal Belgian Football Association, the Belgian Olympic Committee and others.

The board of Sportspress.be is elected nationally. The association incorporates two subsections: VBS (Flemish Association of Sportswriters) and APFJS (Association of Professional French speaking Sportswriters).

Every year, the professional members of Sportspress.be elect the Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year. The winners receive their trophy during the annual Sports Gala, which is hosted in partnership with Golazo sports and broadcast live on VRT TV (Sporza).


If you are a foreign journalist, and you would like to attend a sports event in Belgium, including matches in the Jupiler Pro League (Belgium's first division), please send your request to info@sportspress.be. Please note that your request should include a scan of a valid AIPS card or a valid membership card of your national sports press association. Accreditation requests without such proof of membership will not be considered.
