Note 1: RVV Noorderkwartier, the original owners of Sportpark Blijdorpse Polder, ceased all activities in the course of the 2009/2010 season. In 2010, the premises were taken over by RVV Blijdorp, who had been forced out of their ground at Noorderbocht. RVV Blijdorp are scheduled to return to renovated version of Noorderbocht in the summer of 2019. Sportpark Blijdorpse Polder, which is adjacent to Neptunus' baseball stadium (the so-called Familiestadion, capacity 2,760 - cp. photo 16 below) and to the former SC Neptunus' football ground (which was taken over by RVV Blijdorp for training purposes after SC Neptunus merged - and moved in - with RVV Schiebroek).

BELGIUM: Schijf Sport

Zavelstraat, Retie (Schijf Sport)

Belgium, province: Antwerp

22 IV 2019 / Schijf Sport - FCW Spin 16-0 / Arbeidersvoetbal Kempen, Sunday League

Note 1: Arbeidersvoetbal Kempen is a league of Flemish amateur teams in Belgian Limburg and Eastern Antwerp non affiliated to the Royal Belgian Football Association. Under the auspices of Arbeidersvoetbal Kempen, there is a pyramid of Saturday teams as well as a league of teams playing on Sunday mornings.

Note 2: the encounter I attended turned out to be a rather sorry affair as Schijf Sport disposed of ten players and FC Welkom Spin of a mere seven - and after Schijf had netted sixteen goals in the first half, the game was abandoned with mutual consent. The score of 16-0 was accepted by Arbeidersvoetbal Kempen as an official final result.
