Description: Jan Breydel Stadion

With Club Brugge winning national championship in 1973, decision was made by the municipality to build a new stadium. Initially named Olympiastadion, the ground held some 30,000 people, 8,000 of whom had benches to sit on.

In 1987 western stand received new VIP facilities, while in 1993, based on UEFA regulations, terracing was covered with seats, decreasing capacity very much. Thus, to enable hosting of Euro 2000, end zones received second tier seating in 1998, meeting UEFA regulations.

The stadium now houses 29,945 people, but due to safety reasons its size is decreased to 29 022. Only one of the two tenants (Cerlce and Club Brugge) manages to fill the ground, though.
