I am particularly pleased that we have succeeded in welcoming Tim, a real team player at KAS Eupen, with whom we have started an intensive professional exchange on the board level and the technical area during the last couple of weeks. We are convinced that Tim has views on how to run a club as a united structure that are a perfect fit for us.

Tim Cahill: “I´m proud and excited to be joining the KAS Eupen board. Having spent time at the club before the season started, as well as studying it from afar over the last year, I can see that it has enormous potential not only as it has professional staff in place working hard as a unified group for the benefit of the club, which I consider crucial for the success on and off the pitch. I´m looking forward to working tirelessly alongside the board, the club‘s management as well as the technical staff helping to build the identity of the club and contribute to further growth and development. The heartbeat of our club will always be our fans and I look forward to sharing more time with them to understand more about our football club. Let´s go Pandas”.
