BELGIUM: RCS Grivegnée (1923-1999) / RCSJ de Grivegnée (1999-2013) / AIC Sports Grivegnée (2013-2015) / FC Grivegnée (2015-2019) / Juventus Academy Grivegnée (2019-)

Communal-Rue Nicolas Spiroux, Liège = Luik Grivegnée (FC Grivegnée, formerly RCS Grivegnée, RCS Jeunesse de Grivegnée & AIC Sports Grivegnée)

Belgium, province: Liège = Luik

2 IV 2015 / AIC Sports Grivegnée - FC Fontinois 1-1 / Liège, Provincial League 4C (= BE level 8)
31 III 2018 / FC Grivegnée - Jeunesse Magnetoise 2-5 / Liège, Provincial League 4C (= BE level 9)

Note 1: in retrospect, the first match I attended at this ground was somewhat exotic, given that about half a year after the game was played, neither of the two clubs were in existance. FC Fontinois withdrew from Belgian FA's ranks after the 2014-2015 season, whilst AIC Sports Grivegnée and their owner (as well as captain of the squad!) Francy Makembo were forced out of the Stade Communal at Rue Nicolas Spiroux by local authorities in favour of a new club, FC Grivegnée. AIC Sports Grivegnée started the 2015-2016 season playing on the B pitch of the Stade Joseph Vanstraelen in Montegnée, but, having left its spiritual home in Grivegnée, failed to survive for more than a couple of months, ceasing all activities in the fall of 2015. That same year, the premises were taken over by a new club, FC Grivegnée, who took on the name Juventus Academy Grivegnée in 2019.

Note 2: below, a combination of photos of my two match visits - in somewhat different weather circumstances: AIC Sports Grivegnée (2015): pictures 2, 4, 10, 12, 18, 21-22 & 26-27 / FC Grivegnée (2018): pictures 1, 3, 5-9, 11, 13-17, 19-20 & 23-25.
