Simply photos of matchday and stadium visits, mainly in Belgium and the Netherlands, occasionally in Britain or farther afield. Others call it 'groundhopping', whereas I prefer using 'football tourism'... but things have run slightly out of control: therefore, this is Extreme Football Tourism.
Voscuyl Zuid, Oegstgeest (vv Oegstgeest) Netherlands, province: South Holland 17 I 2017 / Oegstgeest - RKVV Meerburg 2-2 / Koetshuis Cup - group stage, group B Note: vv Oegstgeest's stand used to belong to Holland Sport's Houtrust stadium in The Hague-Scheveningen, which was demolished in 1973 (cp. last photo in this series). That same year, vv Oegstgeest (and vv UDO, who were then groundsharing with Oegstgeest) bought the stand - part of the grandstand in Scheveningen - for exactly one Dutch guilder.
Houtrust Noord, The Hague (Den Haag = 's-Gravenhage) Scheveningen (SVV Scheveningen) Netherlands, province: South Holland 10 IV 2010 / SVV Scheveningen - Capelle 2-1 / Zaterdag Hoofdklasse A (= NL level 3) 14 I 2017 / SVV Scheveningen - Ste.Do.Co 2-0 / Saturday Division 3 (= NL level 4) Note 1: all pictures below were taken at the January 2017 visit except the last one, which is from 2010. Note 2: SVV Scheveningen was part of the merger club SHS (Scheveningen-Holland Sport) which played professional league football between 1955 and 1964, the year when Scheveningen withdrew from the merger, preferring to play non-league football instead. Holland Sport itself held out until 1971, when it merged with ADO to form FC Den Haag. SHS and Holland Sport played their league matches in the Houtrust stadium, which was demolished in 1973 and replaced by two pitches, now the premises of SVV Scheveningen's neighbour Duindorp SV.
