Despite going bankrupt in 2002 the club’s logo can still be seen regularly

Copa9020 December ~ At most matches involving Belgium, a huge banner bearing the RWDM crest can be seen in the stands. While many different club flags are displayed at international matches, this one is different. RWDM play in the Belgian fourth division. Formed in 1973 through the merger of Racing White and Daring Molenbeek, RWDM went bankrupt in 2002 but have been revived this season as RWDM47. Before that they had been the city rivals of Anderlecht, with many looking upon RWDM as the “true” team of Brussels. Raoul de Groote looked at the remarkable story of RWDM for Staantribune, which has been reproduced by Copa90 as part of their Copa Collective here.
