History
• Genk were formed when two-time Belgian Cup winners K. Waterschei SV Thor Genk merged with neighbours KFC Winterslag in 1988, taking the latter's top-division place, but they were relegated in their first season and bounced up and down between the top leagues before winning a second promotion in 1996.

• Aimé Antheunis's tactical acumen inspired this Genk side, who won the Belgian Cup in 1998 and a maiden national league title the following season; Branko Strupar and Souleymane Oulare scored 28 and 27 goals respectively in that stunning campaign.

• Following Antheunis's departure for RSC Anderlecht in the summer of 1999, Dutchman Sef Vergoossen oversaw a second title success in 2001/02, in which Wesley Sonck scored 30 goals; Genk went on into the 2002/03 UEFA Champions League, earning four draws in their first group stage campaign.

• After a few leaner years, Genk's policy of investing in youth development paid off when a team featuring youngsters like Jelle Vossen, Kevin De Bruyne, Marvin Ogunjimi and Thibaut Courtois won the 2010/11 title under Frank Vercauteren.

• Genk have made it through the UEFA Europa League group stage unbeaten twice under Mario Been, who also led them to a fourth Belgian Cup success in 2012/13.
