History

Founded in 1908 by some football fans at the Concordia café, the club became rapidly popular in Anderlecht, a municipality of the Brussels Capital Region. In 1917, they installed at the Parc Astrid in a new stadium they baptized Stade Emile Versé. They appeared for the first time in the Belgian First Division in 1921-22. However, in ten years, they were relegated four times to the Belgian Second Division, receiving the nickname of lift club. In the season 1935-36, they finally returned to the top level. After World War II, they achieved successful seasons on the national level. Their success grew until the period 1976-1983 when they won three European cups. In recent years, they played nice Champions' League campaigns but never attained the final anymore. On the national level, they still remained at the top. The stadium changed its name to Constant Vanden Stock in honour of past Anderlecht player and president, a function currently assumed by his son Roger.
