Belgian stadiums

Hello everybody,
Sorry to write in English but I am French and I don't speak Dutch.
As a new member, I briefly introduce myself. I have been interested in stadiums for more than 30 years and have visited about 1000 so far. I also collect postcards and actually almost anything featuring stadiums. I especially like history about stadiums.
I quite like old Belgian stadiums. I have quite a few nice old postcards and I enclose some example.

Thanks for posting Steph9417. English is fine and I guess French is as well for some members including myself. This is a forum/website about Belgian stadiums after all and French is an official language and spoken by 40% of our population.

Do you collect real (paper) postcards or do you find them surfing the web? Many have been scanned and can be found online.

1000 stadium visits, that is quite a lot!

Thanks for your contributions and feel free to share more of your opinions and experiences with us.

I guess most here are interested in stadium(s with a) history, something one will not find in modern generic arenas. But even here in Belgium we have come to a point where we can't stay behind any longer. The fact that old stadium infrastructure is still around is due to financial issues, politics, legislation, administration and protest groups. Unfortunately it's not always possible to keep using the old ones as they are and many clubs prefer a new ground over a renovated one. Fortunately we still have some old gems left here, like Stade Joseph Marien and Stade des Trois Tilleuls in Brussels, to mention just two. The Bosuil Stadium on the other hand will soon be completely unrecognizable from the viewpoint of your postcard.

Thanks for the welcome. I'll carry on in English. Probably easier for all members.

Yes, I do collect real (paper) postcards. I have been collecting for quite a long time too and I have really many in my collection. I know that many have been scanned and can be found online including some from my collection...

I also think that many members are more interested in stadiums with a history, something not offered in more recent modern arenas. But, you're right, keeping the old venues is somewhat impossible, mainly for safety reasons.

I will post more cards from my collection. I also have some unindentified, presumably from Belgium, and I am going to post them too in case someone has information...

Beerschot & Standard

I have moved your posts to this topic, if you don't mind. It seems like the proper place and is better than starting a new topic every time. You can also post the cards ;) in the existing topics for every separate stadium (Beerschot, Anderlecht, Antwerp...) if you want.

Standard: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=59&p=17884#p17884
Antwerp: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=621&p=17949#p17949
Anderlecht: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=53&p=17252#p17252
Beerschot: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=351&start=60

List (current stadiums): viewtopic.php?f=5&t=119
List (old stadiums): viewtopic.php?f=6&t=115

I'm really curious whether we will be able to identify them.

This stadium was used for the 1920 Olympic Games (this year exactly 100 years ago), but I think this card is even before 1920. Can you or someone confirm?

Unfortunately the card was not postally used but I definitely think that it is before 1920. Most likely from the 1910s
