NETHERLANDS: FC Chabab (-2013, 2014-2015)

Riekerhaven Noord, Amsterdam (FC Chabab)

Netherlands, province: North Holland

31 V 2012 / FC Chabab - UNA 1-2 / Zondag Topklasse-Hoofdklasse promotion-relegation play-off semi, first leg (= third/fourth level)

Note: For years, the Amsterdam town council had been wanting to move Chabab and their neighbours Amsterdam Seref Spor away from Riekerhaven, as the facilities were outdated and the ground heavily polluted. In 2013-2014, Chabab played its football at Sloten Oost, groundsharing with FC Blauw-Wit Amsterdam and FC Beursbengels. During the 2014-2015 season, some home games were moved to VVA/Spartaan and RKAVIC. Finally, in mid-2015, FC Chabab merged with SV Nieuw Utrecht. As the new club's name was simply SV Nieuw Utrecht and all football is being played at the Rijnvliet Playing Fields in Utrecht, this merger amounted to the end of FC Chabab - and of the Riekerhaven facilities as well.
