Simply photos of matchday and stadium visits, mainly in Belgium and the Netherlands, occasionally in Britain or farther afield. Others call it 'groundhopping', whereas I prefer using 'football tourism'... but things have run slightly out of control: therefore, this is Extreme Football Tourism.
Stade Nicolas (II), Loyers (R Union Sportive Loyers - A pitch, formerly RUS Loyers - B pitch) Belgium, province: Namur = Namen 18 VIII 2019 / RUS Loyers - OC Nismes 3-1 / Namur, Provincial League 1 (= BE level 6)
Note: US Loyers, founded in 1949, settled down at Comognes de Loyers, later renamed Stade Nicolas, in 1973, but their first team football took place on the pitch on the street side. In December 2016, the 3G on Loyers' pitch B was inaugurated; one month later, the first team home matches were moved to this pitch - making in Loyers' main pitch from that moment onwards.
Stade Nicolas (I), Loyers (R Union Sportive Loyers - B pitch, formerly A pitch) Belgium, province: Namur = Namen 27 IV 2012 / RUS Loyers - R Arquet FC 1-1 / Namur, Provincial Cup semi, second leg Note 1: US Loyers, founded in 1949, settled down at this ground at Comognes de Loyers in 1973; it was named Stade Nicolas in honour of Mr Nicolas Sparmont, who financed the stabilisation of the pitch when the club acceded to Provincial League 1 for the first time in their history. In December 2016, the ground's B pitch had been turned into a 3G with an new clubhouse. From January 2017 onwards, RUS Loyers first team have played their home matches on this former B pitch. Note 2: for the match I attended at this ground, a semi-final in Namur's Provincial Cup, local television provided a live broadcast with two commentators (cp. photo 8), no fewer than three camera operators and even half-time interviews, in this case with a set of twins (unfortunately I do not know their names), one playing for Loyers, the other for Arquet (cp. photo 9).
