Royal Racing Football Club Montegnée is a Belgian association football club from the municipality of Saint-Nicolas, Liège. It is currently playing in the Belgian Promotion D.


Racing Football Club Montegnée was founded in 1915, it received the matricule n°77. It first appeared in the second division in 1923. In 1925 it was relegated to the third division but it came back four years later and won the second division that season. The club then played its only season at the highest level in Belgian football finishing 13th on 14 (before R.S.C. Anderlecht). Montegnée then spent some seasons in the second division until 1938 (except in 1933–34) when it was relegated to the third division again. The club would never come back at the highest two levels.

It was awarded the Royal Stamp in 1952 and became Royal Racing Football Club Montegnée.

After a new appearance in Third Division, the club was relegated two seasons in a row to the Liége Provincial league. But RRFC Montegnée were promoted back to the national promotion D league on 6 June 2010, with A 5–0 playoff final win against FC Herk.
