NETHERLANDS: SV '35 (1951-2008) / SVC '08 (2008-)

Oostersportpark, The Hague = Den Haag/'s-Gravenhage (SVC '08 = Scheveningse Voetbalcombinatie, formerly SV '35)

Netherlands, province: South Holland

19 II 2019 / SVC '08 - SV VELO 2-1 / Haaglanden Cup R1

Note: SV '35 (Sportvereniging 1935) played on various pitches in The Hague before settling down at the northern half of Oostersportpark in 1951. In 2008, a merger was concluded between SV '35 and their neighbours JAC (Jeugdkring-Ambtenaren-Combinatie), who, for many years, had occupied the southern part of the same premises, which, however, had to be given up as it had been designated as the new location for the United States' Embassy to the Netherlands; encouraged by The Hague's city council, SV '35 and JAC formed SVC '08 - and were handed a refurbished Oostersportpark with a new clubhouse and two 3G pitches. Oddly, SVC's ground is owned by The Hague's city council, though it is situated on the territory of the neighbouring municipality of Wassenaar.

In 2013, after a 3G pitch and a new clubhouse had been added to the Stampia premises, Stade Gastuche was abandoned and first team football moved to Grez-Doiceau proper. For the 2018/2019 season, CS Mont-Saint-Guibert are groundsharers at the Complexe du Stampia.

BELGIUM: RUS Chestrolaise

Stade des Tanneries, Neufchâteau (RUS Chestrolaise)

Belgium, province: Luxembourg

17 II 2019 / RUS Chestrolaise - ES Petitvoir-Tournay Reserves 0-7 / Belgian Luxembourg, Reserves' League K

Note 1: RUS Chestrolaise were founded in 1935 and have been in the provincial leagues ever since; with basketball being the most popular sport in the town of Neufchâteau, the local football club has been leading a twilight life for decades now. In August 2018, it was announced Chestrolaise would withdraw their first team after the Provincial Cup's group stages, in which all four matches were lost (including a 28-0 drubbing against RUS Ethe-Belmont). This left Chestrolaise's reserves as the only senior representatives of the club in the 2018/2019 season.

Note 2: Chestrolaise's ground is situated in a public park and lacks an official entrance. The first six photographs in the series below were taken on a non-matchday visit in June 2017.
