In Memoriam Ivo Minnen
Sat 6 Jan BDC has learned of the passing of Ivo Minnen, our ex-football coach.
He was the husband of Marij Verhagen; born on 15/09/1959 and deceased on 19/12/2023 in Mol.

  • Former trainer of the National Deaf Football team
  • Former trainer of SK Branddonk (hearing)
  • Former trainer of KFC Ezaart Sport (hearing)
  • Former trainer of Retie SK (hearing)

We know him as ex-trainer of our national team (13 international games) in the period 1998-2000 with participation in the 1999 European Championship in Oslo.  What made him special was that as a hearing trainer he communicated so fluently in sign language, also because he came from a family with many deaf people. 

We will miss him and wish his family much strength in this difficult period.
