Team De Jaeger Freddy

Team De Jaeger Freddy from the East Flemish village of Knesselare, bordering the province of West Flanders, has been among the best long and extreme long distance colonies for years now. This status is confirmed by for example their 1st International San Sebastian 2006, several national top 10 positions and a string of victories and top positions in all big championships.

Freddy De Jaeger is convinced that quality pays off and keeps setting the bar higher and higher. He is not only a master in the field of acquiring top-class pigeons but has also succeeded in reaching a compromise with Marijn Laureyns to join forces and turn their personal experience, knowledge and ambition into excellent performances at the international top.

Marijn Laureyns is one of the most renowned fanciers in East Flanders. Since 2000 he has won numerous first prizes and has been emperor and ten times general champion of Meetjesland, a union comprising several different regional pigeon federations. He is responsible for maintaining the entire accommodation and taking care of the pigeons. He is without doubt an asset who will enhance the pigeons' quality. Marijn, a great master of pigeons, is also known as “The Wizard”.

After a strong selection on the basis of performances and descent, the best pigeons of Marijn’s and Freddy’s lofts were housed in Knesselare, where new lofts will be constructed.

For Freddy and Marijn to be able to focus completely on caring for and racing with their pigeons, Freddy also persuaded Frank Morre to join Team De Jaeger.

Frank Morre has been a friend of the family for over 40 years. He himself has raced pigeons at the end of the 1970s and in the beginning of the 1980s. Frank’s main task is keeping the administration up to date.

During the racing season the website will be updated weekly with the latest results, photos and possible activities.
