Club mergers Can't Post or Reply Privately

Continuing from here, I've added a couple of Dutch clubs to the Wikipedia page - FC Twente and FC Utrecht.

Probably a lot more European clubs.

A few I can think of in Israel:

Beitar Shimshon Tel Aviv (Beitar Tel Aviv & Shimshon Tel Aviv)
Hakoah Amidar Ramat Gan (first merger: Hakoah Tel Aviv and Maccabi Ramat Gan, second merger with Maccabi Ramat Amidar)
FC Ashdod (Hapoel Ashdod & Maccabi Ashdod)
Ironi Kiryat Shmona (Hapoel Kiryat Shmona & Maccabi Kiryat Shmona)

If you're doing/updating the Welsh ones?

Inter Cardiff themselves were a merger of Lake United FC & Sully FC going back into (I think) the 1980's.

Off the top of my head in Italy:
My club Venezia, the real name should actually be VeneziaMestre through the merging of the two biggest clubs in town (Venezia and Mestre) in 1987.
Sampdoria, formed in 1946 through the merging of Sampierdarense and Andrea Doria two clubs of the Genoa hinterland.
Triestina, formed in 1918 through the merging of Ponziana and Football Club Trieste.
Brescia, formed in 1911 through the merging of Victoria, Unione Sportiva Bresciana and Gimnasium.

Lake United were renamed AFC Cardiff in 1984 then merged with Sully in 1990 to become Inter Cardiff.

I was just doing the English clubs. I did the two Dutch clubs because of the information I have here.

Anyone can add content to the page. I've added a link to this thread on the Discussion page, so anyone who is up to it can add the names from here.

Inter Cardiff is already on the list. So is Sampdoria.

Absolutely millions in Belgium, notably:

Beerschot + Germinal Ekeren = Germinal Beerschot
Beveren + Red Star Haasdonk = Waasland-Beveren
Daring Leuven + Leuven + Zwarte Duivels Oud-Heverlee = Oud-Heverlee Leuven
Denderleeuw + Eendracht Hekelgem = Denderleeuw E H; Denderleeuw E H + Verbroedering Denderhoutem = Verbroedering Dender E H
Racing Bruxelles + Royal White Star = Racing White; Daring Bruxelles + Racing White = Racing White Daring Molenbeek; Racing White Daring Molenbeek + Strombeek = FC Brussels
Racing Lokeren + Standaard Lokeren = Lokeren; Lokeren + Sint-Niklase = Sporting Lokeren Sint-Niklaas Waasland, now Lokeren Oost-Vlaanderen
Waregem + Zultse = Zulte Waregem
Waterschei Thor Genk + Winterslag = Racing Genk

Do combined teams count as mergers? In Austria and Denmark in particular, there have been a number of instances where two clubs have continued to have separate existences but have fielded a joint first team so as to play at a higher level than either club could manage on its own. For instance, FC Midtjylland is a combined first team of Herning Fremad and Ikast, and FC Vorarlberg was a combined first team of Ratia Bludenz and Schwarz-Weiss Bregenz.

Try adding the ones that interest you to the Wikipedia list. It's not that difficult.

I doubt combined teams count though.
