Belfius Bank to Become New RSC Anderlecht Main Sponsor

BNP Paribas Fortis’ current four-year deal runs until the end of the 2020-21 season but will be terminated a year ahead of schedule. The shirt sponsorship deal with BNP Paribas Fortis was worth around €2.4m per season.

It is claimed that Belfius, the Belgian bank that sponsors the club’s academy, is ready to become the club's new front of shirt sponsor.

Some weeks ago, it already emerged that Belgian telecoms operator Proximus decided against extending its back-of-shirt sponsorship deal with Anderlecht. Proximus will also end its sponsorships of Belgian Pro League sides Charleroi and Club Brugge.
