About Excelsior Mouscron

R.E. Mouscron was a football in Belgium club from the municipality of Mouscron, Hainaut (province). In December 2009 they were declared bankrupt and suspended operations soon after marking the end of professional football in Mouscron.


The club is the result of the merger between Stade Mouscron and A.R.A. Mouscron in 1964.

R.E. Mouscron had financial problems during the 2004–05 season and so the president and mayor of Mouscron Jean-Pierre Detremmerie left the club and was replaced by Edward Van Daele. The players with the higher wages were asked to leave the club, as did Marcin Żewłakow, Franky Vandendriessche, Geoffrey Claeys, Koen De Vleeschauwer and Alexandre Teklak.

In late 2009 Manchester City was ready to spend £3million to save R.E. Mouscron from bankruptcy and use them as a feeder club.

On 28 December 2009, Mouscron announced its third forfeit in a row because of enduring financial problems, and was thus, according to Belgian league rules, excluded from competition, with all its previous results in the 2009–10 Belgian First Division being scrapped. The club in its current form will cease to exist, with all its players (and staff) becoming free agents. It is not yet known if the club, with its current matricule, will start over in a lower league.
