Royal Antwerp FC is a Belgianmarker football club, from the city of Antwerpmarker in Antwerp marker. Antwerp became the first football club to register to the Belgian Football Association and it received consequently the matricule number one. In 1900, most of the players left the club for the new Beerschot A.C. It is also the last Belgian team to play in a European cup final (namely the Cup Winners' Cup) in 1993, losing 3-1 to Parma A.C. at Wembley Stadiummarker.

Royal Antwerp also have a long-term partnership with the Englishmarker club Manchester United F.C., often taking their young players on loan so that their development can be aided with first team football, and young players who require European work-permits can benefit from Belgium's more relaxed laws - an example is Dong Fangzhuo, who was unable to play for Manchester United at once due to work permit problems and was loaned to allow him to gain first team experience.
