RWS Bruxelles (Royal White Star Bruxelles) is a Belgian football club located in the municipality of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, Brussels.


The logo of Royal White Star Woluwe FC, kept until the name change in 2013.

The club, founded in 1948, was formerly known as Kapelleveld FC, playing in Evere, but they changed their name in 1950 to Woluwe FC when they moved to the Stade Fallon in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert.[1] In 1959, Woluwe FC left the Stade Fallon to play in Kapelleveld in a stadium located Avenue Albert Dumonlaan. In 1963, as the main club from Woluwe, White Star AC, merged with the famous RR de Bruxelles, becoming the RR White, Woluwe FC changed their name to White Star Woluwe FC, taking over the star of the former club's logo. In 1972, the club moved from their stadium in Kapelleveld to the 2nd ground of the Stade Fallon, home of the RR White. The next year, as RR White merged with the R Daring Club Molenbeek and moved to the Edmond Machtens Stadium in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, White Star Woluwe FC took over the main ground of the Stade Fallon. In 2013, the team changed name again, to Royal White Star Bruxelles.
