RWDM47, also known as RWD Molenbeek or often referred to as RWDM is a Belgian football club founded in 1951 as Standaard Wetteren. In 2015, Wetteren folded and merged with another club, liberating the matricule which was sold to people wanting to revive the former RWDM with matricule 47 which folded in 2002. As such the new club was named RWDM47. The club has been on the rise ever since winning two consecutive promotions from the fifth tier to the fourth and fourth to third. The club holds a strong fanbase with an average of 3 to 4 thousand supporters at home and bring large numbers away. The owner, Thierry Dailly has become a favourite at the club on how he has run things and has prepared the club for life in the second tier, the division they last played in when they played as RWDM Brussels in 2014. RWDM's academy has always been one of the best in Belgium and many footballers have come from there, notably Adnan Januzaj and Michy Batshuayi to name a few Belgian internationals as well as a few internationals for other countries.

The club currently plays in the Belgian First Amateur Division. It participated in the 2015–16 Belgian Cup, where it reached the fourth round.[1][2]
