King Baudouin Stadium - National Football Team Belgium

King Baudouin Football Stadium or Koning Boudewijnstadion / Stade Roi Baudouin is named to the predecessor of king Albert II. It's the largest stadium of Belgium and the ground where the national football team plays most of their home games. Every year, the Stadium welcomes 2 also two other major sports events: the Cup Final of Belgian football and since 1977 the Memorial Ivo Van Damme as well as various concerts. The most successful Belgian Cup winner is Club Brugge KV followed by RSC Anderlecht and R Standard de Liège.

The stadium was inaugurated on August 23, 1930 as the Stade du Jubilé or Jubelstadion (Jubilee Stadium) in the presence of Prince Leopold.

The stadium was renamed again after the Heysel stadium disaster hapened on the 29th May 1985. The 1985 European Cup Final between Juventus and Liverpool was to be contested at the stadium. An hour before the match a group of Liverpool supporters charged the Juventus fans and were pushed towards a side perimeter wall. Trying to escape by climbing over the wall, the wall collapsed, and 39 people died.

The stadium hosted four Cup Winners Cup finals: in 1964 between Sporting Lisbon and MTK Budapest Hungaria, in 1976 between RSC Anderlecht and West Ham United, in 1980 between Valencia and Arsenal, and the last in 1996 at the newly renovated stadium between Paris Saint-Germain and Rapid Wien.
