Belgium, province: Hainaut = Henegouwen
15 XI 2015 / Châtelet-Farciennes SC - Olympic Club Charleroi-Marchienne 1-2 / Belgium, Div. 4B
Note 1: until April 2015, Châtelet's ground was called Stade Fernand Hennaut, but in honour of Adrien Mura, a former team mate of Hennaut who has now been a club member for some sixty years, it was decided upon to rename the stadium. Mr Mura was happy to have his photo taken at the ground's entrance (= photo 2).
Note 2: after the demise of RFC Farciennes (September 2014), its Stade des Marais remained unused. Because the Farciennes town council wanted a new club to occupy the ground, it asked R Châtelet SC to fill the void. In the summer of 2015, the club were renamed Châtelet-Farciennes SC, with youth teams playing in Farciennes. In 2016, the tables were turned, as the first team moved to Farciennes. When R Châtelet-Farciennes merged with R Olympic Club Charleroi in 2019, the premises in Châtelet became redundant. That same summer, the ground was taken over by RAS Monceau, a club who have not been able to use their Stade Victor Corbier from February 2017 onwards due to a landslide and have since led a wandering existance in several different grounds in the Greater Charleroi region.
