Waasland-Beveren and Roger Stilz end cooperation by mutual agreement

Roger Stilz (44) and Waasland-Beveren have agreed to terminate the contract of its sports director by mutual agreement, effective November 10. “Roger approached us recently and told us that there were both family reasons and a professional opportunity closer to his home that he wanted to pursue. We understood his situation and have accepted his request,” says CEO Antoine Gobin.


I would like to thank the club, my colleagues, the staff, the fans and, of course, our coaching team and the players for the intensive cooperation,” says Stilz, who is convinced that the foundation has been created to help the club in the short and medium term. Mr. Gobin adds “Over the past months we have taken positive steps to professionalize and stabilize the club. I believe Roger has helped us getting started, and we will now continue working towards our goals this season and beyond.


Roger will attend the away game at Westerlo and use these next days as a transition period with the team in Beveren. The club will start immediately in reorganizing its sports department.
