Dear pigeonfriend,

As you know, for a few years already, I’m organising an indoor pigeon market at the football ground in Bevel. This year again it’s at the same weekend as Houten spring Show in Holland, it’s on Friday March 1é. It’s only 30 min from Antwerp and 10 min from Lier where market is on the Sunday. With loads of parking aria for the coaches it isn’t a problem to get there close to the front door.
There is a bar and a hamburgers stall indoor.

The first coaches arrives around noon local time, they coming straight from the port or Chunnel. Sellers will stay as long as there are buyers. Please find attached the details of sellers that have already confirmed, in a while I will have more names.

The addres of the football ground is

KFC Football club Bevel
Laarstraat 5
2560 Bevel / Nijlen

My details are

Johan Van Herck
Nijlense Steenweg 88
2270 Herenthout
Mobile +32 485 85 89 47

I hope to meet you there.

Yours in sports


Johan Van Herck Herenthout
Dear visitor, sport friend:
As the organiser I would like to welcome you to our
indoor pigeon market at the football ground. The
question that you must dare to ask yourself is "For what
reason am I making this trip?" and if the answer is "to
buy good youngsters?" or "to strengthen my loft?" well
then you are at the right place. This market is not just a
pigeon market! The fanciers who come to sell
youngsters here are only strong performing champions.
They only offer strictly selected young birds, these are all brothers and sisters of their first
round youngsters with which the sellers will perform at the competitions. The participants I
allow on my market are all fanciers who race and perform with the pigeons themselves.
Those who only breed pigeons to sell and tell you stories about the best breeds and the
biggest champions are selling on Lier market and sell pigeons that they have bred mainly for
their beautiful colour. Most fanciers who sell here are not swayed with pedigrees that
contain the best ace pigeons and biggest names. Often you just get the ring card with it, but
realise all the more that the stock pigeons of the greatest champions are purchased from
these fanciers, that’s a public secret!!
The proof has already been delivered several times, many top performances in England and
Ireland have been delivered by Belgian youngsters that have been purchased at this market.
You will see when entering the indoor market that some English enthusiasts are hurrying to
be first with the particular enthusiasts, these smart guys experience the quality of the
offered young birds every year. The price is determined by the vendors themselves but is
normally around € 50 each. This is more than on Lier market, right! But when you compare
the quality and the performance, you are astonished. Do not be fooled by the charlatans and
choose quality, convince yourself and surprise friend, foe and maybe yourself. Your
purchases will not disappoint you!
I hope you have enjoyable visit and make good purchases!
See you soon
Yours in Sport
