KV Mechelen declined in the late 1990s though they had two more spells at the highest level from 1999–00 to 2000–01 and in 2002–03. At the end of that season, the club did not receive their Belgian professional football license. They were thus relegated to the third division with a 9-point penalty. After two promotions in 2004–05 and in 2006–07, KV Mechelen has come back to the first division.

Most cities in Flanders have a mock name for their inhabitants. Since 1687, for their heroic attempt to fight the fire high up in the Saint-Rumbold's Tower, where the gothic windows had shown the flaring of only the moon between clouds, Mechlinians have been called Maneblussers (moon extinguishers).
