Football Club Progrès Niedercorn is a football club, based in Niederkorn, in south-western Luxembourg.


During the German occupation of Luxembourg, the club played in the Gauliga Moselland under the name of FK Niederkorn, where it finished runners-up in 1942-43, behind champions TuS Neuendorf.

Three times domestic league winners, the club's most successful years were arguably in the end of the 1970s and beginning of the 1980s. They have not won any major silverware since their 1981 league title.

In the 2005-06 season, Niedercorn finished second in Luxembourg's second division, the Division of Honour. As the top league, the National Division, is expanding from twelve teams to fourteen, Niedercorn was promoted along with FC Differdange 03.
