BELGIUM: Eendracht FC Schoonbeek-Beverst (B) (1953-1972) / Eendracht FC Schoonbeek (B) (1972-2010) / K Eendracht White Star Schoonbeek-Beverst (B) (2010-2014) / K Eendracht White Star Schoonbeek-Beverst (2014-)

Sportpark Hereveld II, Schoonbeek (K Eendracht White Star Schoonbeek-Beverst, formerly B pitch of Eendracht FC Schoonbeek-Beverst / Eendracht FC Schoonbeek / K Eendracht White Star Schoonbeek-Beverst)

Belgium, province: Limburg

25 VIII 2019 / KEWS Schoonbeek-Beverst - K Victoria VV 's Herenelderen 5-2 / Limburg, Provincial Cup - South-Eastern Region

Note 1: K Eendracht White Star Schoonbeek-Beverst are a merger of Eendracht FC Schoonbeek and K Wit-Ster Beverst, concluded in 2010. In 2014, a 3G was constructed on Sportpark Hereveld's B pitch - and the club decided to move its first team football away from their original main pitch. It took five years to complete the facilities around the synthetic pitch - with originally just a small bit of cover; in 2018, the new clubhouse & main stand were completed, though the official inauguration did not take place until August 2019.

Note 2: below, a compilation of photographs of two different visits: (1) non-matchday visit, October 2017 (prior to construction of main stand) = pictures 2-4 / (2) match visit, August 2019 = pictures 1 & 5-12.

BELGIUM: ES du Geer (1953-1984) / ES du Geer-Roclenge (1984-1990) / Union Roclenge-Wonck (B) (1990-±2013)

Rue Petit Brou, Roclenge-sur-Geer = Rukkelingen-op-den-Jeker (formerly Entente Sportive du Geer / Entente Sportive du Geer-Roclenge / B ground of Union Roclenge-Wonck)

Belgium, province: Liège = Luik

August 2019 / no match visited

Note: Entente Sportive du Geer, founded in 1953 (not to be confused with Entente Sportive FC du Geer), changed their name to become ES du Geer-Roclenge in 1984. In 1990, the club merged with Jeunesse Sportive Wonckoise (founded in 1971) to become Union Roclenge-Wonck. It is beyond my knowledge when Union Roclenge-Wonck abandoned this ground in favour of the one situated at Rue de la Pommeraie in Wonck (Wonk). A plaque on the clubhouse mentions that this construction was inaugurated in 1994.

BELGIUM: AS Houtain (1976-2017) / AS Houtain-Milanello (B) (2017-2019) / AS Houtain-Milanello (2019-)

Rue de Wonck, Houtain-Saint-Siméon = Houtem (AS Houtain-Milanello - A ground, formerly AS Houtain & B ground of AS Houtain-Milanello)

Belgium, province: Liège = Luik

25 VIII 2019 / AS Houtain-Milanello - R Oupeye FC 0-0 / Liège, Provincial League 2B (= BE level 7)

Note: AS Houtain, founded in 1959, moved into this ground in 1976. In 2017, the club merged with AC Milanello Milmort, forming AS Houtain-Milanello. In the first two seasons following the merger, first team football took place at Rue de l'Escousset, Milanello's ground in Milmort, while all lower team football was played in Houtain-Saint-Siméon. In 2019, however, the pitch in Milmort was sold and Houtain-Milanello's first team took up playing their games at Rue de Wonck as well.

BELGIUM: KFC Belgica Edegem (±1924-1966) / KVV Belgica Edegem Sport (1966-2016) / FC Belgica (2017-) / VC Ostan (2017-)

Gemeentelijk Sportstadion 'Vic Coveliers', Edegem (FC Belgica & VC Ostan, formerly KFC Belgica Edegem / KVV Belgica Edegem Sport)

Belgium, province: Antwerp

22 VIII 2019 / FC Belgica - K Boechoutse VV 4-2 / Pre-season friendly

Note: the premises of what has been known as the Vic Coveliers Stadium after a complete refurbishment in 1980, have been in use since probably the early 1920s by KFC Belgica Edegem and subsequently (after a merger with KVV Edegem Sport) KVV Belgica Edegem Sport. When this club went into administration in 2016, the ground remained unused for one season. In 2017, Edegem's town council decided to allow two recreational teams to occupy the stadium: FC Belgica (founded in 1974 as a breakaway from KVV Belgica Edegem Sport of those disaffected by the 1966 merger) and VC Ostan, both of which had been playing at a ground at Molenlei in Edegem - a pitch meanwhile replaced by housing.
