SVV Red Star Brussels (then: Red Star Gent started her first full season on September 13th 2009 against United KV. RSG won easily 3-0, and immediatly showed their claims on the title for the season. However, because of two defeats against human competitor SKDH United on the second and before last matchday, RSG remained on the second position through the whole competition. Joël Crahay became topscorer with 13 goals.

The climb to the top - move to Brussels

Red Star Brussels played in division VIII.255 starting from Season 41. They performed rather well, and where able to take the first position in the competition after the seventh matchday. The team promoted to Division VII. By the end of the season, it became clear that a majority of the new supporters came from Brussels and the Walloon area, and that the team's political profile attracted large layers of foreign supporters. Therefore, the team decided to move to the Brussels town of Elsene by the end of the Season. The team started in Division VII.578, starting from Season 42. Again, they immediatly promoted that season by again winning the competition. They arrived in competition VI.449 in Season 43, and suprisingly reached the second position in the classement after an excellent season, where RSB dominated the league for most of the season. The second season in League VI.449, RSB stayed in the half of the classement, and ended fourth. The team would still stay in VI.449 for three more seasons, after it promoted to the fifth division, playing in Division V.189.

Pitch invasion in the final game against Skunk Anansie in Season 66, when promotion to 5th division was ensured.

Fifth or sixth division

In League V.189, it became soon clear that the fifth division of the Belgian championship was much more difficult then the sixth division, and that the team didn't have the strenght to guarantee the maintain in this competition. Despite some good results earlier in Season 47, the team was condemned to a degradation playoff later in the season, in which it lost 1-3 against Pickass United!. The team fell back to division six. The team would remain in sixth division for another 3 seasons, although winning the league in the last two occasions. The first time, they - consciountly - didn't promote back to fifth division, the second time, in Season 50, they overclassed their competition so much, that they automatically promoted, and ended up in League V.231. This time, the promotion was much more stable, and in the very first year in 5th, a third place in the league was obtained.

Closing and reopening of the team

Early 2016, then SVV Red Star Brussels was closed, after a period of inactivity from manager User:Lunacharsky. On September 18th 2016, the team was refounded as SVV Red Star Gent, and started Season 63. After one season, they returned to Brussels, and were renamed SVV Red Star Brussels. The team played in 6th division for four consecutive seasons, reaching the fourth, third and second position respectively. During this fourth season, Season 66, they promoted to fifth division for the first time in 7 seasons. This was widely celebrated by the supporters through a pitch invasion.

The team remained in 5th division for the next four seasons.

Homegrown team

During Season 67, the team decided to become a homegrown team over the coming years. The team will be focussing mainly on training its own youth recruits, and in 19 seasons, the whole A-side will be solely composed of players that are originally from the own youth academy.

Name & Slogan

Team Name

The current name "Red Star Brussels" was introduced in January 2017, when the team was recreated in Brussels. The name was adopted originally on September 15th 2009, when a poll amongst supporters decided to adopt "SVV Red Star Gent" as the official name of the team. Other possibilities where "Rode Ster Gent" or "Red Star Ghent". The supporters decided to take an international stand by choosing Red Star in the name of team, thus making the meaning of this part of name understandable for international supporters. They also choose to take up the official local name of the city where the team was founded: Gent (instead of Ghent in English).

Before that day, the team was first called "Rode Ster Gent". Because the Belgian Season 27 had already started, the new official name came into effect during the midseason between Season 27 and Season 28. Later, from April 2010 to early 2016, the team was called "SVV Red Star Brussels". After the recreation in September 2016, the team was named SVV Red Star Gent for one season, after wich they attained their current name SVV Red Star Brussels.


The official slogan of the team is "Nixor, Concordia, Socialisma", or "Struggle, Solidarity, Socialism". It is also the slogan of the trotskyist party LSP, of which most supporters are members. The slogan expresses the sportive rivalry and competition between football teams, while on the same time stressing on the class unity between all workers of different teams, or like President Jan Verhamme of the supporters' association put it: "Football rivalry is for one evening, class solidarity is forever"
