The 2005-2006 season was the 103rd competitive season in Belgian football.

Overview[edit]

For the first season since 2000, the football fancard is not needed to see a first division game. Tickets for matches can now be purchased with a single ID card and on the day of the match, which was not permitted since the introduction of the fancard. Furthermore, for the second season in history (the first time was in the 1960s), one game of each matchday is shown on public television. Another premiere is that every Jupiler League game can be watched on a private television channel.
