History and description

The new stadium was inaugurated on April 29th 1926 with a match against Westerlo. The attendance of 13,000 was a record for the Belgian First Division. The Anderlecht club needed a larger stadium and found a suitable site in the Astridpark in the borough of Anderlecht. Plans were quickly approved by the local council, and on April 29th 1926 the new stadium was inaugurated with a match against Westerlo. The attendance of 13,000 is a record for the Belgian First Division. The stadium was renamed after the club's second president, Constant Vanden Stock.

The Stade Emile Versé stadium originally only consisted of a wooden stand, which was replaced by a concrete one when the club promoted to the first division in 1935.

Further terraces were built in the 1950s, and a new seating stand got built on top of one of the terraces in 1962. This resulted in a capacity of almost 40,000.

In 1980, Stade Emile Versé recorded its highest attendance of 38,349 when Standard de Liège was played.

In 1983, the club embarked on a major redevelopment of the stadium. Works started with the reconstruction of the main stand, and in subsequent years continued with all other stands. In 2003, after president Constant Vanden Stock had died, the stadium was renamed in his honour.

Constant Vanden Stock Stadium was not selected as a playing venue for the Euro 2000 tournament because it did not meet the 30,000 threshold. The club decided to invest their own funds in improving their squad instead.

The stadium underwent a refurbishment in the summer of 2012 to keep it eligible to host Champions League matches. The works included the installation of new and more spacious seats, which reduced capacity from just over 26,000 people to its current total of 21,500.

For years, Anderlecht have been looking into the possibilities of either expanding their Constant Vanden Stock Stadion or building a new stadium. While preferring the former, plans to expand the stadium were not approved due to local citizens' objections, and so instead the club decided to become the occupant of the future Eurostadium, despite feeling that the 60,000 capacity is much too large for them.

The Eurostadium is expected to be completed in the summer of 2019, and Anderlecht will move out of the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium at the end of the 2018-19 season. No decision has currently been made yet what will happen with the stadium after, with local legislators studying the options.

How to get to Constant Vanden Stock Stadion

The Constant Vanden Stock Stadium is located in the west of Brussels, slightly more than 4 kilometers from the city center. Drive to the Brussels ring road (RO), exit 14 Anderlecht, turn towards the city and drive on the Boulevard Sylvain Dupuis. After almost a kilometre, turn right at the traffic lights, and after 300 metres left onto the Théo Verbeecklaan.

There is not much parking available around the stadium, and it may be best to leave your car at Westland Shopping after exiting the ring road.

If you arrive by public transport, take metro line 5 in the direction of Erasmus and exit at station Saint-Guidon. It is only a small walk to the stadium. Line 5 passes Brussels' main railway station (Gare Centrale), which lies in the middle of the city centre.

Address: Avenue Théo Verbeecklaan 2, Bruxelles 1070 Brussel

Relevant Internet links

The official website of RSC Anderlecht, Visit Brussels and the tourism bureau of Brussels are all great resources for exploring Brussels. The timetables, network maps and journey planner for public transport can help you plan your trip easily. The stadium is comfortable, food and drink outlets are located inside, and I was disappointed with the lack of support from the home fans. Maybe it was due to a weaker opponent. Overall Brussels is beautiful, and I recommend every football fan to go and attend a match at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.
