Koninklijke Voetbal Vereniging Crossing Elewijt is a Belgian association football club from the village of Elewijt in the municipality of Zemst, Vlaams Brabant. It plays at the very last level in the Belgian football league system, i.e. in the 4th division of the regional league of Brabant.

History[edit]

The club was founded in Ganshoren (North-West of Brussels) as Crossing F.C. Ganshoren in 1913 and was given the matricule n°55 by the Belgian Football Association. R. Crossing F.C. Ganshoren changed its name in 1959 to become R. Crossing Club Molenbeek as it moved to Sint-Jans-Molenbeek, Brussels.

Two years later the club qualified for the second division and finished 5th. It then reached the third place in 1967 and the second two seasons after to qualify for the first division. Before the beginning of the first season of the matricule n°55 at the highest level, the Crossing merged with R.C.S. Schaarbeek to become the famous R. Crossing Club Schaarbeek located in Schaarbeek. The spell in the first division only lasted for 4 seasons and then the club decayed.

In 1991 it merged with V.V. Elewijt to become the K.V.V. Crossing Elewijt.
