Referees & scouts



During the corona crisis, the club chooses to allow only paying subscribers during home matches of the Canaries. As soon as the situation improves, this measure will also be reviewed. The club thanks you for your understanding.

Referees are only entitled to the requested ticket upon presentation of their referee card at the counter itself. Additional paying tickets must be purchased by the referees themselves and will not be registered by e-mail.

Pick up of the requested ticket can be done at the counters of the OOST-tribune (Stayenlaan) from one and a half hours before the start of the match.

Normal Matches

In the case of regular matches, the applications must be received no later than three working days before the start of the match as long as the stock lasts (rules KBVB):

The holders of a continuous invitation card must report their presence in writing:

  • For the championship match in 1st national division, at least three days before the match. This request must also include a photocopy of the invitation card.
  • For the matches of the Belgian Cup, which take place in the stadium of a first class football club, the application must be sent to the Secretary-General. This request also includes a photocopy of the card in question. The home team will be notified by the latter three days before the match.
