Note 1: FC Karel Mintjens were originally founded as the amateur football team of the Mintjens furniture factory, named after long time owner (and former cyclist) Karel Mintjens (1933-1993). Nowadays, hardly any of the players have any association with the factory. The sports facilities in Westmalle comprise an indoor hall, a tennis club, and two football pitches. Since 2016, R Antwerp FC have rented the pitches for their new football academy.

Note 2: KVDV (Kempisch Verbond Door Vriendenclubs or simply 'Bond van Rijkevorsel') is a league of Flemish amateur teams in the Turnhout region not affiliated to the Royal Belgian Football Association.
