Charlie Champion / Koen Kampioen

Charlie Champion (Koen Kampioen) is a sporty, exciting and humorous youth drama series based on the popular book series by Fred Diks, published by Kluitman publishing house.

Koen plays football together with his friends Niels, Renske, Tarkan, Aukje and Gijs in the junior team of football club FC TOP.

Koen and Niels have only one goal and that is being champion and becoming professional football players.

The D1 Team is not always that strong, doesn’t always have the right fighting spirit and is sometimes lacking in unity. They are facing conflicts within the team, adventures, circumstances beyond their control and competition, making both the football games and their lives take unexpected turns.

Each episode the kids go through exciting adventures in and around the football ground. They face things like theft, a fire, unsportsmanlike behaviour, jealousy, lies and betrayal and they have to use all their sportsmanship, creativity and team-spirit to make their adventures end well.
