KAA GENT exactly 116 years old today

On 31 October 1900, today exactly 116 years ago, KAA Gent was founded as the football department of the Association Athlétique La Gantoise (the Ghent Athletic Association, AAG). Its founders were Hector Priem and Auguste Van de Kerckhove. The AAG was a Ghent-based multi-sports association, which was born in 1864 as the Société Gantoise de Gymnastique and merged in 1891 with the Association Athlétique. In 1914 the association was conferred a royal warrant and was permitted, from that moment on, to call itself the Association Royale Athlétique La Gantoise (ARAG). In 1972 the name was changed to its Dutch counterpart: Koninklijke Atletiek Associatie Gent, or KAA Gent.
