Extra stadium info – Stade Roi Baudouin

The Stade Roi Baudouin is named after a former Belgian king. The national football team of Belgium, nicknamed Red Devils, use the venue for home games. The stadium’s record attendance was set in 1963, when 64,000 people attended a football game between the Belgian side RSC Anderlecht and the Scottish side Dundee FC. The venue hosted the 1985 European Cup final between Juventus and Liverpool FC. Before the match started, escaping fans were pressed against a wall, which led to 39 deaths and hundreds of injured people. The disaster also led to a five-year ban for English football clubs from European competitions.
