BELGIUM: RCS Saint-Louis Athus (1926-1958) / RSC Athusien (B) (1958-2016) / RSC Athusien (2016-)

Rue Haute, Athus (RSC Athusien, formerly RCS Saint-Louis Athus)

Belgium, province: Luxembourg

24 IX 2017 / SC Athusien - ES Châtillon 2-3 / Belgian Luxembourg, Provincial League 3E (= BE level 8)

Note: the Rue Haute ground in Athus has a long history, as it was the stadium of R Cercle Sportif Saint-Louis Athus, the town's catholic club. After the merger with RFC JS Athusienne in 1958, forming RSC Athusien, first team football moved to the former JS ground, Rue de France (which is just across the railroad, literally no more than a stone's throw away). The Rue Haute remained in use for lower team football and training purposes. In 2016, however, it was decided upon to leave the Rue de France stadium and move all activities to the more modernly equipped youth ground. As a result, regular first team football returned to the Rue Haute for the first time since the late 1950s, though it has to be pointed out that CS Saint-Louis played its matches on what is now pitch 2 of Rue Haute.
