Belgian Season 56, or Global Season 69, was the twenty-eighth full season in which Red Star Brussels participated, and the seventh after the new start of the team. They played in League V.176.
The Red Star Brussels stadium, the Leon Trotski Arena, was not enlarged, and continued to hold 62.000 places.
Change of shirts
Red Star Brussels continued with the fourth 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 69, they used the shirts RWDM used in the season 1974-75; the year they won their only title in the Belgian first division.
The ambition of the team was to remain in fifth division, preferably without having to play a qualification game. The season started well, with three victories. After this, two consecutive losses meant the team fell back a bit in the rankings. For the remainder of the season, Red Star Brussels would balance between third and sixth position in the league, finally finishing third: a new record for the team since the restart. This meant that Brussels didn't need to worry about a play-off, but was certain to remain in 5th division.
In the Belgium Cup, Red Star won their first cup game, but lost their second game against HIH Hoepertingen. They lost again in the next cup game, the Ruby Cup first round against Germinal Ekeren. In the Consolation Cup, they defeated Racing Bierbuik in the second round, but lost against Sporting Lokeren OVL in the third round.
Red Star Brussels 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 finished training to begin this season: Tim Grauls, Frederick Eeckman and Divock Origi will be the future attackers of the team. Their training in passing finished after three matchdays in the new season. Afterwards, the team trained set pieces for two weeks, and then switched to playmaking to train the future midfielders and wingers: Axel Clauwaert, Vic Clauwaerts, Pierre Jonckheere, Gandert Timmermans, Pierre-Henri Coupry and Chris Gilbert.
