The Oscar Vankesbeeckstadion was built in 1923 and could hold over 21.000 fans. Noways the capacity is limited to 6.123. The stadium is really worth a visit.

RC Mechelen is a club which had a lot of fans in the past but because of many financial problems they now play in the 3th tier of Belgian football for just 300 spectators.. Today I visited their game against KSV Temse, who are in 4th position, RC Mechelen are 18th (last) with only 1 win and 5 draws..

After 20 minutes it was RC Mechelen who took the lead but only a few minutes later Temse equalised. Early in the 2nd half Temse even took the lead and both teams got a few more very good chances but no goals were scored. All in all both teams played a very bad game on a very very cold night, luckily there is a McDonald’s very nearby!!
