3) Activation of the following teams that were wrongly set as extinct in the original DB:
-SC BASTIDIENNE BORDEAUX
-ESPOIR CLUB BASTIA
-FC AJACCIO (NOT SURE FOR THIS TEAM BUT IS ACTIVATED ANYWAY)
-FC TILLOY LES MOFFLAINES
-FC ROCHEFORT AMANGE
-SPORTING CLUB SAINT-MARTINOIS
All of them were placed in the Division Inferieure (lower league) and regional divisions for N1,N2,N3 and U19 was set upon the region each one of them belongs.
4) Correction of names here and there
FC AURILLAC ARPAJON - FC AURILLAC
RACING CLUB DE FRANCE FOOTBALL COLOMBES 92 - RACING CLUB DE FRANCE FOOTBALL
5) Several connections from extinct teams were made with teams that are their successors nowadays
EVIAN TG -THONON EVIAN GRAND GENEVE
CREUTZWALD AND L'HOPITAL - CREUTZWALD 03
NOTE: QUIMPER HAS A STRANGE HISTORY WITH NAMES.
- STADE QUIMPEROIS was used in 3 different periods and
- QUIMPER CORNOUAILLE FC was used in 2 different periods
Therefore in its history tab it's not any mistake but the reason i described above!
- GS NICOLIN was renamed as Olympique de Pantin.
- ES 3V2 was renamed as FC Nancy (the old and extinct team that later was merged with COS Villiers).
* Both clubs had either won the Coupe de France or reached the final a couple of times.
**Both teams that were renamed hopefully had no history on national basis so it was easy and safe choise.
- For a strange reason there were 2 teams with the name Toulon le Las, Toulon le Las never refounded it only merged with SC Toulon Var to form SC Toulon in 2016.
Speaking of SC Toulon i used the Toulon le Las version that had no competition history and renamed it also SC Toulon (1st edition of the team) that existed untill 1984.
2nd version of the team was SC Toulon Var and 3rd SC Toulon.
All 3 teams + the merged Toulon le Las history can be shown in SC Toulon competition history (pics below).
- For a similar reason there were also 2 teams with the name AS Fresnoy.
****The one was picked to become Norcap Grenoble which later merged with Grenoble and can be found on the teams history too!
Although it was a huge project some things i couldn't change
- Some extinct B or C teams are missing from the DB as a result no classification was given to them.
- In cases of active B teams the only thing you can edit is the last year's position so before that i couldn't do any edit.
- Teams that spent at least one year on a national base and are missing from the original DB:
1)AIGLE SPORTIF DES BROSSES VILLEURBANNE
3)USO BRUAY LA BUISSIERE
10)US FRIVILLE - ESCARBOTIN
11)STADE LEONARD KREISKER
***Football Club Bagnols-Pont is a team founded in 1992 from the merge of 2 teams:
UC Bagnols Jeunesse and Independante Pont-Saint-Esprit
Both teams spent at least 1 year on national basis and their history is shown on FC Bagnols Pont with the name of the later though.
Below are some example pics of the before and after!
