Brussels Integration through Sports (BIS)


Brussels Integration through Sports (BIS) – literally sets in motion youngsters with a migration background. Thanks to Foyer, many young people who occasionally play sport find themselves a team with fixed training sessions and weekly matches. At the same time, BIS aims to involve them in the organisational aspects of club sports, and thus sharpen their personal and organisational skills.

With a clear focus on autonomy and self-development, Foyer also arranges sporting initiatives that benefit members in the long term. Among our success stories are the women’s basketball team – Molenbeek Rebels Basketball – and Atlemo, our athletics team, which have grown to become independent sports clubs that we continue to work with.

Our more recently created Foyer Cricket Club, on the other hand, we manage ourselves. This sport is hugely popular around the world, but fans in Brussels have not had much opportunity to play themselves – until now. Other plans in development are aimed at handball and badminton fans. Thanks to the participation of Roma and Asian players respectively, less well-known sports are finding a place in the urban sports landscape.

Cricket training every Saturday from 10 am to 12 noon, Sippelberg sports centre, Av. M. Gandhi 5, 1080 Molenbeek


In addition to these permanent activities, other departments regularly use sport as a lever for inclusion. For example, the men’s group does wall climbing and (indoor) football, while women can go to Dar al Amal for swimming and cycling sessions, among other things. And of course, given Foyer’s DNA, we offer our young people regular training in a variety of sports.
