Stade du Tivoli – stadium description

Opened in 1972 in the east of La Louvière, the stadium experienced its largest ever game on the night of its opening. A crowd of 18,000 people has never been seen here again, now being impossible due to capacity decreasing to 12,500.

It also wasn’t helpful that the historic host, RAA Louvièroise was disbanded in 2009 and a different side moved here, adapting RAA’s colours only in 2015.

The stadium has four independent stands around the 6-lane running track. Until 2003 only the western main grandstand was covered, but then a series of upgrades resulted in all spectators having a roof over their heads by 2005. Also, in the north and east most of the concrete terracing received a steel addition, raising viewers higher and thus improving their sightlines.
