In the early part of the 20th century, KV Kortrijk made its debut in the first division for the first time, between 1906–07 and 1910–11. They did not return to the highest level of competition for another 65 years, during which time they played in the Premier League for 15 seasons, with each of those 15 seasons being broken up by a season spent in the second division (between 1976–1977 and 1978–1979, and between 1980–1981 and 1991–1992). Before making their way back up to the Belgian Pro League for the 2008–09 season, KV Kortrijk had previously competed in the first level during the 1998–1999 season.
The Guldensporen Stadion serves as the host venue for KV Kortrijk’s matches at home. It can accommodate 9,399 people at the moment and is situated in Kortrijk, which is in the country of Belgium. The capacity of the stadium was raised from 6,896 to 9,399 during the summer of 2008, shortly after Kortrijk was promoted to the First Division of the Belgian Football League.
The name “Guldensporenstadion” comes from the Norse word for “Stadium of the Golden Spurs.” This refers to the Battle of the Golden Spurs, which took place in Kortrijk in the year 1302, and is the inspiration for the stadium’s name. The stadium has the appearance of a conventional neighborhood stadium and has a single level of seating all the way around the field.
