Following the Paris attacks in 2015 and Brussels attacks a year later, the municipality of Molenbeek has often been described as a hotspot for international extremism and radicalism by some foreign media.
Many initiatives were taken to counter these clichés and to show a different face of Molenbeek. One of these came from two Dutch men, Unico Van Kooten and Ahmed Lahrouz, who at first had nothing to do with Molenbeek. They used their contacts in Brussels and the Netherlands with the support of many organizations to create a football court where people of different origins could meet and play together. It took them two years to finalize their project.
The Molenbeek Cruyff Court was inaugurated on March 22, 2018, exactly two years after the Brussels terror attacks.
The Johan Cruyff Foundation has created many Cruyff Courts all over the World.
