R. Union Saint-Gilloise is a Belgian football club located in the municipality of Forest, though it is named after the neighbour municipality of Saint-Gilles, Brussels. It has been in the second division since 2004-05. Its matricule is the n°10.

History

The club was founded in 1897 and obtained its first of eleven titles as Champion of Belgium in 1904. Until World War II it was a major team in Belgian football, establishing a well-known record in Belgium in the years 1933 to 1935 (they played 60 consecutive games without losing). After the war, it had a brief spell of European success, playing the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup between 1958 and 1965 (but this cup was not bound with the championship final table), and attaining the semi-finals in the 1958-60 edition after a two legged victory against A.S. Roma. In 1963, the club is relegated to the second division, and even attained the lowest national level in 1980.
