History[edit]

The club was founded as F.C. Heist-Sportief in September 1940 . In January 1941, the team played in the Flemish Association, not part of the Belgian Football Association, but a different competitive amateur football league. In the spring of 1941 they moved to the Belgian Football Association, where they were awarded matriculation number 2948. Since then, it received the royal prefix Koninklijke in 1990, and in July 1995 it merged with K.S.V. Heist-op-den-Berg to become the professional club it is today K.S.K. Heist.
