Koninklijke Football Club Rhodienne-Verrewinkel is a Belgian association football club created in 1894 as Racing Football Club. It became a member of the Belgian Football Association in 1895 as Racing Club de Bruxelles and later received the matricule n°6. It took part to the first Belgian league the same year and won 6 titles of Belgian Champion and 1 Cup until the first world war.
Then, the club declined, and in 1963, it merged with White Star Woluwé A.C. to avoid bankruptcy. The new club was then called Royal Racing White. It was decided that this club would keep the matricule N°47 of White Star Woluwé. Thus to avoid that the matricule n°6 of Royal Racing Club de Bruxelles (as it was named since 1921) was erased, the club exchanged its matricule with that of K. Sport Sint-Genesius-Rode.

K. Sport Sint-Genesius-Rode history (1927—1963)
In 1927, it was officially founded as F.C. La Rhodienne and one year later the first official match was played. The team started to compete in the third regional division in 1929, where it immediately won its league. In 1936 the club reached the provincial divisions. After the War it progressed into the national divisions.
In 1963, La Rhodienne came into play to keep Racing Brussels' matricule n°6 alive. On 21 June 1963, Racing Club changed its name to Royal F.C. La Rhodienne, keeping the matricule n°6. On the next day, K. Sport Sint-Genesius-Rode (matricule n°1274) changed its name to Royal Racing Club de Bruxelles. On 23 June, the club wearing the matricule N°6, which had just been renamed to Royal FC La Rhodienne, now changed its name to K. Sport St-Genesius-Rode. The clubs had effectively changed names, so although the original Racing Club merged into R. Racing White in 1963, it was effectively the matricule n°1274 that merged, and the old matricule 6 was kept alive in a different club.
