Description

The King Baudouin Stadium is a sports ground in the Heysel plateau in Laeken (Brussels).

It was inaugurated as the Jubilee Stadium by Prince Leopold on 23 August 1930, the days after Belgium's 100th anniversary, in view of the Brussels International Exposition of 1935. It then hosted 70 thousand spectators.

Poorly maintained, it was literally crumbling by the time of the 1985 European Cup. On 29 May 1985, just before the Cup Final between Liverpool of England and Juventus of Italy, a riot started, causing the death of 39 Juventus fans and
600 injuried.

The stadium was rebuilt a decade later, renamed King Baudouin Stadium and re-opened on 23 August 1995 as the home of the national football team. It is the largest stadium in Belgium, seating 50 thousand spectators It hosted the opening
game for Euro 2000.
