THE BELGIAN RUGBY FEDERATION, INTERNATIONAL GAY RUGBY AND STRAFFE KETTEN RFC JOIN FORCES TO TACKLE HOMOPHOBIA IN RUGBY.
The Memorandum of Understanding came into force on Friday May 13th 2016 and it creates a framework for cooperation among the three bodies, in order to to jointly ensure that everybody feels welcome in the Belgian rugby environment. The Belgian Rugby Federation (FBRB) pledges to work together with Straffe Ketten and International Gay Rugby to combat discrimination and continue the promotion of equality and inclusiveness in the game.
What does Straffe Ketten mean?
In Flemish Brussels dialect, a ket is a guy from Brussels, and therefore a straffe ket is a tough Brussels boy. Ketten is the plural of ket :)
Whether you are curious to play rugby with us, or you want to become a supporter, you can become a Straffe Ket!
