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 Club Charleroi-Farciennes; first team football now inevitably moved to Olympic Charleroi's Stade Neuville, whilst the ground in Farciennes became home to the new club's youth academy. 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.
