Below is a table with FC Den Bosch's domestic results since the introduction of professional football in 1956.

During January 30, 2013 match with AZ Alkmaar American forward Jozy Altidore was the target of racist chants in the quarterfinals of the Dutch Cup. The club's director, Peter Bijvelds, blamed malicious supporters making a scandalous mess of the evening. He said Den Bosch, AZ and the referee considered abandoning the match, but decided against it.

We can't deny that, certainly when we play top matches ... we have a structural problem with a group of people who ruin things, Bijvelds told Dutch radio. We have to crack down on it.

However this racial incident was a minor one, and gravely offended the vast majority of FCDB supporters, including the bulk of the organised support as for years they have been known for their strong stance against any forms of racism and against the commercialisation of football. Following this incident FCDB club and fans went on a series of actions to rectify the image of the club and re-instate their strong stance against any form of racism; evident to this was a campaign launched by the club to equip a whole village in Africa with FCDB official football kits and football equipment. The FCDB organised supporter known as the M-side until today stand firmly against racism and "Against Modern Football" and this is evident within their own logo.
