26 I 2013 / SC Lokeren - SC Anderlecht 0-2 / Belgium, League 1

Note: K Sporting Club Lokeren saw the daylight in 1970 as a result of a merger between two local lower league clubs, Standaard FC Lokeren and K Racing Club Lokeren. On the occasion of the merger, the Lokeren town council offered the new club to play in their Stedelijk Stadion, which had hitherto served as a venue for athletics and dog races; later, the ground, which saw major improvements over the years, was renamed Daknamstadion - named after the hamlet just north of Lokeren proper where the ground is located. From the mid-1970s, the new club was a household name in Belgium's highest football league, only interrupted by a short spell in Tweede Klasse (League Div. 2) in the 1990s. In 2000, KSC Lokeren merged with K Sint-Niklase SK Excelsior to become K Sporting Lokeren Sint-Niklaas Waasland, renamed KSC Lokeren Oost-Vlaanderen three years later. In April 2020, KSC Lokeren Oost-Vlaanderen went into administration, ceasing all activities. Thereupon, a 'merger' was concluded with KSV Temse to become KSC Lokeren-Temse. First team football will be played in Lokeren, whilst the youth academy will settle down at Temse's Fernand Schuermanstadion.
