The Bruges derby is a local football rivalry between two Belgian Pro League clubs Club Brugge and Cercle Brugge, who share the Jan Breydel Stadium in Bruges, Belgium.

The derby was first contested during the 1899-1900 season however the results of this season have been lost. The first known result was the following season in November 1900 and finished 0–0. The return fixture that season ended 2–2 but Cercle won the next five games before Club recorded their first victory with a 5–0 in October 1904. It would be the start of Club Brugge's dominance as they went on to win 13 of the next 19 pre-War fixtures, losing only 2. Cercle Brugge were the more successful side of the two before the Second World War winning three championships and one cup to Club Brugge solitary championship. Since the 1970s Club Brugge have become one of the most successful sides in Belgium winning a further 12 championships and a record 10 Cups while Cercle have only added 3 more cups since, because of this many Club Brugge fans now see Anderlecht as their main rival. In the derby Club Brugge maintains a dramatically superior record often winning many consecutive games and have also recorded many high-scoring wins such as 8–1 in 1981 and their biggest ever victory against any opposition with a 10–0 win in 1991.[1]

The derby is notable as for many years it was the only city-based derby regularly played in Belgium. Cities such as Antwerp, Brussels and Liège had two or more successful sides but many of these had gone out of existence or play outside the top flight. Since 2020, the Antwerp derby is again regularly played as both Antwerp and Beerschot are now in the top flight together.
