History and description

It was renovated in 1998 and currently has a capacity of 26,000 people. The stadium site of Stade du Pays de Charleroi was first used for football in 1923, however it took until 1939 before an actual stadium was built. The stadium was renovated in 1998 and currently has a capacity of 26,000 people. The Stade du Pays de Charleroi, now known as the Stade Mambourg, opened on the 5th of March 1939 with a match between Charleroi and US Centre (2-1).

For most of the next decades, Stade Mambourg consisted of one small seater stand, one covered terrace at the opposite side, and terraces in the corners at the short ends.

In the 1980s, a new stand was erected that covered the entire length of the pitch. Two new covered terraces were built at the short ends of the pitch, and they were later fitted with seats.

The stadium remained a modest ground until it got selected as one of the playing venues for Euro 2000. After a major redevelopment program, it increased its capacity to 30,000 seats. Works included the construction of second tier on three of the four stands, and a steep third tier on Tribune III.

During the European Championships, the third tier on Tribune III was removed again, reducing capacity to just 25,000 seats.

In 2012, it was discovered that the city of Charleroi had not applied for planning permission to expand the stadium, and were told to tear down the upper tiers of the stadium, resulting in a reduction in capacity to 15,000 seats.

Charleroi are currently looking to build a new stadium in the suburb of Marchienne-au-Pont. Preliminary plans suggest that the stadium could have a capacity of around 20,000 people, with the hope of having it completed in 2024.

The main stand for the Ultras is Tribune 3 which we will definitely try one day, probably when I am fully fit and able to stand for that amount of time.The atmosphere outside was in now intimidating and we were welcomed by the locals when we sampled the local brew in a bar next to the ground.Inside the ground, the bars were open and sold alcohol that you were able to take to your seats right up until the final whistle.A 2-1 victory for Charleroi obviously put the locals in a good mood and even made for the players doing a lap of honour after the final whistle.A highly recommended ground, cheap, with an atmosphere, it certainly ticked all of our boxes.I would say that I don't expect tickets to be available on day of each game. Certainly upcoming games against Anderlecht and Standard Liege you would be best advised buy tickets prior to game day if possible.

I thought I would try out the stadium that was last visited by England many years ago.

We arrived at the game without tickets, which meant that both teams were in the middle of the playoff race and this game was very important.

We easily parked in what I assume are side streets used by all fans and quickly found our way to the stadium noticing that a whole host of restaurants are open for all to visit.

We easily located the ticket office and purchased tickets for $21 located in Tribune 4 which is a side stand. We were located next to the Ultra wannabes. The main stand for the Ultras is Tribune 3 which we will definitely try one day, probably when I am fully fit and able to stand for that amount of time.

The outside atmosphere was now intimidating, and we were welcomed by the locals when we sampled the local brew in a bar next to the ground.

The ground had open bars that sold alcohol until the final whistle.

After a 2-1 victory, the locals were obviously in a good mood and took a lap of honour after the final whistle.

I highly recommend the ground as it is cheap, has an atmosphere that pleases me, and meets all my requirements.

I do not expect tickets to be available on the day for all games. Certainly, the upcoming games against Anderlecht and Standard Liege you would be best advised to buy tickets prior to the day of the game if possible.

The Charleroi supporters were very friendly and the atmosphere was wonderful. There were fireworks on the roof and also a rain cover over part of the stadium. It was awesome!

The locals were very welcoming to Charleroi supporters, and the atmosphere was fantastic. There were fireworks on the roof and a rain cover over part of the stadium. It was a real treat!.

I find it hard to believe that they have any soul. This is an old, tired ground with a lot of charisma and I enjoyed it.

As the top tiers have been taken down, making it all open for competition, the atmosphere is good. I'm not one for new grounds, preferring to think they lack soul and often lack character. This old ground has loads of charisma, which I loved.
