Nice artwork. It seems Panini Belgium hired an art director able to introduce some creativity. Good news. Belgians always do it better !

I went to the press conference yesterday in Tubize, and met the CEO of Panini Belgium.
There are indeed 5 different types of packets.
The fans got the complete album with stickers (seperatly) as a present.
Grtz, Jan

@JanVD Did they told if a Mercato will be released later?

Conceirning the 5 different packets. We can see 10 players from 10 different teams, but really strange to see there is no player of Anderlecht on it.
No Hanni or Tielemans. I see Sofiane Hanni is shown on the cover of the album, but not on the packets. I may not bad thinking but we can't deny that the designer/illustrator made a lot of commission work for Club Brugge (tifo, flags, ...)

No they didn't say.

You're absolutely right! Had my thoughts about it too...

I just opened a few packets and my first impression is very good. The (empty) album is a pleasure to browse and I have to say that the quality of the stickers is excellent! The paper is thick again (!), not those crappy thin low quality stickers we know from the EC16 and FIFA356-2017 series.

Luckily no quiz-pages this time but a presentation of the 2nd division.
The 8 clubs of the second division (1B) are also presented on two full pages and has as many players as the first division-teams and also every player is presented on one sticker. Great!
The difference is that only the first divison has stickers of key players in action.

I could already find such a promo card. Probably for the most collectors just a collectors item. This promotion card is also only interesting for the Walloon (French speaking) collectors of Belgium. We already saw such type of promotion 3 editions ago (for a digital subscription of a football magazine, free ball and cards for some free pizza)

Thanks for sharing this error.

From the info I could find at Wikipedia the info seems also not 100% correct:
#369 Henrik Dalsgaard with wrong picture: (born the 27th of July 1989, length: 1,92m., weight, 81kg.)
#376 Lukas Lerager with correct picture: (born the 12th of July 1993, length: 1,80m., weight, 70kg.)

I just noticed on the Facebook page of Panini Belgium that they reprinted two (!) stickers.

So not only the sticker of Henrik Dalsgaard. I was very surprised to read that they reprinted also a sticker of Papazoglou.
I had to take a look in my collection to see the fault and indeed there is a little fault with his number. They gave him #25 (which is the number of team mate Xavier Mercier) in stead of #9.

The joke is that Papazoglou played a terrible season and left the club (on loan) 10 days ago. Now he's playing for the Dutch team Roda JC.

Also apologized by Panini: two faults inside the album:
fault 1: Antwerp, the oldest club of Belgium is established in 1880 (and not as published in 1895)
fault 2: The registration number of Cercle Brugge is not 121, but 12

But there will be no reprints of the album, they will only correct it for the next season album which probably means there will be also again a second division.

Today I received the 2 reprinted stickers (see attachment).

#369 Henrik Dalsgaard (Zulte Waregem) is now printed with the correct picture.
#172 Thanasis Papazoglou (Kv Kortrijk) is printed wrong again.

They changed #25 to #14. :confused:
He never played with that number. He always played with #9.
Anyway, all doesn't matter due the wintermercato Teddy Chevalier is currently playing with #9 and Hannes Van der Bruggen with #14.
As told in the previous post Papazoglou is now playing for Roda Jc and there he's playing with #25.
