BELGIUM: RFC Seraing (B) (?-1996) / RFC Sérésien (B) (1996-2014) / FC Seraing matr. 9310 (2006-2009) / Seraing United (B) (2014-2015) / RFC Seraing (C) (2015-)

Stade du Pairay - pitch 2, Seraing (RFC Seraing - training pitch, formerly B pitch of RFC Seraing / RFC Sérésien / Seraing United & A pitch of FC Seraing matr. 9310)

Belgium, province: Liège = Luik

November 2019 / no match visited

Note: RFC Seraing's youth academy is right across the road from their Stade du Pairay in the Boverie neighbourhood. I have not been able to find when these side pitches were added to the stadium, which was originally constructed in 1906. Apart from serving RFC Seraing (in its different guises) as a youth ground as well as for training purposes, the pitch shown in the below was used for first team football between 2006 and 2009 by another club, as FC Seraing (matricule 9310) played their home games here; this club, originally called FC La Débrouille Seraing, moved to Pairay's pitch 2 when their own ground, Fontaine Campagne Chatqueue, was deemed unsuitable for Provincial League 1 football; FC Seraing even made it to the national leagues in 2009, but went into administration several months later.

BELGIUM: RUS Liège (1909-1953) / CS Etoile d'Or (1974-) / FC Atlas (2006-)

Stade Communal 'Aux Bons-Buveurs', Liège = Luik Saint-Nicolas = Sint-Niklaas (CS Etoile d'Or & FC Atlas, formerly R Union Sportive de Liège)

Belgium, province: Liège = Luik

17 XI 2019 / FC Atlas - FC Jeneffe 15-0 / ALFA Division d'Honneur

Note: this ground was home to Union Sportive de Liège, which merged with Gold Star Liège in 1953 after being deprived of the right to play on this communal pitch. The next twenty years of the ground's history are nebulous to say the least. Since the 1970s, it has been used by CS Etoile d'Or, who were joined by FC Atlas (founded in 1991) in 2006; both teams play their football in ALFA (Association Liégeoise de Football Amateur), a league of clubs from the Greater Liège region not affiliated to the official Belgian Football Association.
