BELGIUM: RUS Fossoise (1961-2001) / JS Fossoise (2002-2010) / Racing FC Fosses (2010-)

Stade André Winson, Fosses-la-Ville (Racing FC Fosses, formerly RUS Fossoise & JS Fossoise)

Belgium, province: Namur = Namen

23 III 2018 / Racing FC Fosses - OC Nismes 7-2 / Namur, Provincial League 1 (= BE level 6)

Note: RUS Fossoise were founded in 1926, and played at a ground close to Fosses-la-Ville's train station until approximately 1961, upon which the current Stade André Winson was inaugurated. The new ground was named after a local benefactor who, after his own son had passed away, decided to give Fosses-la-Ville's youth something to cheer about - a new stadium. RUS Fossoise went into administration in 2001; after one year's pause, a new club was formed, JS Fossoise, which was renamed Racing FC Fosses in 2010.
