Royal Leopold HC

Club biography

Royal Leopold won their ticket to the EHL when they won a playoff against Racing Club de Bruxelles following a fourth place finish in the regular season. It will be their fourth EHL season.

Royal Leopold have made significant additions for next season when they will return to the EHL as they bid “to lay the foundations to win the Belgian title within three years”.

To do this, the Robin Geens/Thomas Van den Balck coaching team have kept the services of Manu Brunet, Tom Degroote, Aristide Coisne, Jean-Baptiste Forgues and Kane Russell while key midfielder Dorian Thiery has extended his contract to 2020.

Nicolas Poncelet returns to the club after a title-winning year with Dragons while exciting French forward Gaspard Baumgarten moves from FC Lyon who he helped to runners-up in their national competition.

Leopold will also introduce several talents from their youth academy including Archibald De Kepper, Felix Deleuze, Dylan Englebert, Max Muschs or François Sior.
