About KV Oostende

K.V. Oostende is a football in Belgium club, from the municipality of Ostend, West Flanders. It was created in 1904 as V.G. Oostende and it has the matricule n°31.

History

In 1911 another club was created, A.S.V. Oostende K.M., which would soon become the best club of the city, playing regularly in the Belgian Second Division in the 1930s. In the mid 1970s, the AS reached the Belgian Pro League while the VG was playing at the second level.

The two clubs merged in 1981 to become K.V. Oostende. Twelve years after, the new club reached the first division. It has then been playing in the second division since 1995 except in 1998–99 and 2004–05 when it played at the higher level again.

VG Oostende was re-founded at the lowest level of the Belgian football one year after the merger. The club originally used the name Oostendse VG until the name VG Oostende could be used again ten years after the merger. VG Oostende originally used the Armenonville stadium again, which was the original VG Oostende's ground. Since the ground has been declared unsafe, VG Oostende groundshares with KV Oostende in the Albertparkstadion.

In August 2007, Oostende established a working partnership with Scotland giants Celtic F.C.. Under the deal, each season Celtic will send up to three reserve and youth team players on loan to Oostende. These working partnerships are not unique to Belgian football, as Royal Antwerp FC have been in partnership with Manchester United F.C. since 1998.
