Belgian Season 54, or Global Season 67, was the twenty-sixth full season in which Red Star Brussels participated, and the fifth after the new start of the team. They played in League V.176.
The Red Star Brussels stadium, the Leon Trotski Arena, was enlarged before the start of the season to accommodate 53.500 supporters.
Change of shirts
Red Star Brussels continued with the second of a six-season series of special edition shirts that commemorate shirts worn by the favourite teams of manager Lunacharsky, each in a setting referring to a special period in those teams' history. In season 67, they used the shirts AFC Wimbledon used in the season 2015-16; the year of their promotion to League One after winning playoffs.
The ambition of the team was to remain in fifth division, preferably without having to play a qualification game. The team was moderately successful, installing themselves around the 4th and 5th place from the start of the season, before gradually falling back to 7th position around mid-season.
In the Belgium Cup, no specific ambitions were formulated. The team reached the third round in the Cup, where they were eliminated by Kfc Ruien A. They continued to the fourth round of the Sapphire Cup, where they were eliminated by FC Kreta.
In the competition, RSB started strongly in the first part of the season, being second after the first matchday. Later on in the season, they had more difficulties, even reaching position 7 in the league for three weeks. Because of a final sprint in the last 5 matches, the team was capable of reaching the fifth position and had to play a play-off to remain in the 5th division. They defeated Heverlee Heethoofden with 3-0, and remained as such in division V.176 for another season.
During the season, the team officially adopted the homegrown team strategy: in the future, all players in the team will come from our own youth accommodation. The first bulk of the team, forwards will finish training this season: Tim Grauls, Frederick Eeckman and Divock Origi will be the future attackers of the team. Next season, the team will focus on current youth prospects Vic Clauwaerts, Axel Clauwaert, Bolesław Kasprzyszak and Chris Gilbert.
