BELGIUM: R Avenir Fouron FC

Weersterweg = Route de Warsage, 's-Gravenvoeren = Fouron-le-Comte (R Avenir Fouron FC)

Belgium, province: Limburg

15 V 2016 / Avenir Fouron FC - FC Queue-du-Bois 1-0 / Liège, Provincial League 4 - promotion play-off quarter final (= BE Div. 8)

Note 1: though Fouron-le-Comte (along with the other villages and hamlets of the bilingual Fourons/Voeren region) was transferred from the province of Liège to Limburg in 1963 when Belgium's language borders were redrawn, Avenir Fouron continued playing their football in Liège's provincial leagues. A couple of streets away is the ground of SK Moelingen, the Dutch-speaking club of 's-Gravenvoeren (Fouron-le-Comte).
