FC Rapid Mansfeldia Hamm Benfica is a football club, based in Hamm, a quarter of Luxembourg City, in southern Luxembourg.


The club was founded on 26 March 2004 after a fusion between FC Hamm 37 and FC RM 86 Luxembourg. They spent their first seasons in the Second Division but clinched promotion to the Luxembourg National Division after the 2006–07 season.

FC RM (Rapid Mansfeldia) 86 Luxembourg was itself founded after FC Rapid Neudorf (founded in 1909) and FC Mansfeldia Clausen-Cents (founded in 1919) merged in 1986 after both clubs were relegated from their respective divisions. FC Hamm 37 was founded in 1937.
