Extra stadium info – Stade Roi Baudouin

The national football team of Belgium, nicknamed Red Devils, use the venue for home games. The stadium 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.
