F.C. The Champions


21 seasons | 273 episodes | 40 min

available as ready made available as format

This comic series revolves around the adventures of a poorly performing pub football team called F.C. The Champions. For 21 seasons (!) the comical misunderstandings in the cafeteria and beyond create hilarious moments.

Most of the scenes take place in the club room, the homes of the main characters and the property of the neighbor. A constant element in the series is the hostile neighbor. He feels bothered by the football team on several levels and would love to see them leave...

F.C. The Champions is by far the most successful Flemish TV series ever (including the ongoing reruns) and perhaps the most successful Dutch-language TV series ever.

Besides the film three movies were made that also attracted a large audience. A fourth movie is on his way.
