About RBC Roosendaal

Roosendaalse Boys Combinatie Roosendaal, also known as RBC Roosendaal was a Netherlands association football club based in Roosendaal, North Brabant. RBC lastly played in the Eerste Divisie, the second tier of football in the Netherlands.


RBC, the brainchild of Frans Mathijsen and Anton Poldermans, was formed on July 31, 1912. The club was initially called Excelsior and was renamed VV Roosendaal in 1920. The club's present name is the result of a merger with another football team. On July 16, 1927, the club became known as Roosendaal Boys Combinatie (RBC) because of the merger with Roosendaalsche Boys.

In 1955 the club turned professional and won the Tweede Divisie in 1957. With the leagues restructured by the KNVB the club left professional football in 1971. Between the return to professional status in 1983 RBC was a successful amateurclub.

In 2000 the club reached the Eredivisie for the first time just for one season. Before 2001, RBC played its league games in stadium De Luiten, which had a capacity of 2,000 seats and 5,000 standing places. In 2001, RBC moved into its new 5,000 seater stadium. RBC returned in the Eredivisie in 2002 for four seasons.

In the 2004–05 season, RBC just avoided the Nacompetitie (relegation playoff). Relegation could not be avoided a year later, with RBC finishing bottom of the Eredivisie in the Eredivisie 2005–06.

On 8 June 2011 RBC Roosendaal was declared bankrupt after the board failed to repay the outstanding debts of €1.6 million; this led to an automatic revocation of the professional license from KNVB. With RBC Roosendaal now out of Eerste Divisie, the board started working in order to register the club to the amateur Hoofdklasse league for the 15 June deadline. On 14 June 2011 it was published that RBC will not play in the Hoofdklasse. Therefore it definitely disappeared from Dutch football.

On 21 September 2011, it was announced that RBC Roosendaal, would make a new start in Dutch football. RBC Roosendaal will start in the Vijfde Klasse, the 9th tier in Dutch football.
