BELGIUM: RFC Farciennes (1947-2014) / R Châtelet-Farciennes SC (B) (2015-2016) / R Châtelet-Farciennes SC (2016-2019) / Olympic Club Charleroi Farciennes (C) (2019-)

Rue des Marais, Farciennes (R Châtelet-Farciennes SC, formerly RFC Farciennes)

Belgium, province: Hainaut = Henegouwen

25 IX 2016 / Châtelet-Farciennes SC - Olympic Charleroi 2-2 / ACFF Div. 2 (= BE Div. 4)

Note 1: after the demise of RFC Farciennes (September 2014), its Stade des Marais remained unused for one year. Because the Farciennes town council was adamant that a new club should occupy the stadium, it asked Châtelet SC to fill the void. In 2015, the club was renamed Châtelet-Farciennes SC, with youth teams playing in Farciennes. One year later, the first team was moved away from the Stade Adrien Mura to Farciennes as well. In 2019, R Châtelet-Farciennes SC concluded a merger, this time with Olympic Club Charleroi, forming Olympic Charleroi-Châtelet-Farciennes (OCCF); first team football now inevitably moved to Olympic Charleroi's Stade Neuville, whilst the ground in Farciennes became home to part of the new club's youth academy; since the merger, OCCF's reserves have played at Rue Georges Tourneur in Marchienne-au-Pont. At that point, not only the reference to Châtelet in the club name was dropped, but the Stade Adrien Mura in Châtelet proper was abandoned as well.
