BRUSSELS — Not only did the Belgian national football team fail to qualify for the World Cup in Germany, but Belgian businesses have missed the lucrative advantages of the sporting spectacular as well.

Just a few Belgian firms will be allowed to film and broadcast footage, produce flags or provide air travel.

Two Belgian companies, EVS and Wollux — which are often involved in international events — managed to win contracts.

Liège-based EVS will record television footage and broadcast it

Moeskroen-based Wollux will produce 10,000 official World Cup flags, 30,000 British and 100,000 Dutch flags.

Two Antwerp firms, Alfacam and Euro1080, won profitable contracts in the area of high-definition television.

Lastly, JetAirFly will transport French, British and Dutch supporters to German cities where matches will be played.
