History and description

The total cost of the stadium, which was divided equally between the two clubs, was £1.2 million. The Jan Breydel Stadion was built in 1974 and opened one year later in 1975. It was built by the city of Bruges with the objective of providing both Bruges clubs with a shared home that could replace their separate grounds. The total cost of the stadium, which was divided equally between the two clubs, was £1.2 million. Prior to the 1936 Summer Olympics, the stadium was simply known as Olympiastadion. It could only accommodate around 25,000 spectators due to its small size.

The terraces of the stadium were converted into seating areas in the 1990s, reducing its capacity to under 20,000 seats. As the stadium was selected as a playing venue for the Euro 2000 championships, it needed to get expanded to a minimum capacity of at least 30,000.

In order to qualify for subsidies from the Flanders government, a more Flemish name was required. This led to the name change to Jan Breydel Stadium, a folk hero from 14th century Bruges.

Construction of two expanded stands on the short ends and renovations of the two stands on the long sides were completed in 1999.

During the Euro 2000 tournament, Jan Breydel Stadium hosted three group matches and the quarter-final between France and Spain (3-1).

They hope to be able to move into their new home by the start of the 2019-20 season. If these plans go through, Cercle Brugge aim to redevelop the Jan Breydel Stadion into a smaller venue with an approximate capacity of 12,000 seats.

I was going to get a jersey, but it was international holiday so the shops were not open. Despite that, when I and my dad were walking around the stadium, we met some kind well-spoken English girls who seemed like very loyal supporters. They told us about the history and about the Club. I will start to follow them next year and would recommend Brugge to visit.

We drank in a town near the stadium and talked to some fans before heading to the game. The atmosphere was good, and the service at halftime was much more efficient than in American stadiums! The game finished 0-0, but I enjoyed my visit to this stadium.

In the evening we had a couple of drinks in town then headed down to the ground. We had a few drinks in a pub about 5 minutes from the stadium and had a chat with a few of the local fans before heading to the stadium. The atmosphere was good. With all European stadiums outside, service at half time was much more efficient! The game finished 0-0 but I enjoyed my visit to this stadium.

A disgrace in 2012 and the club should be ashamed of such poor facilities. This trip was a real let down because of it! Alon with the 7 mile round trip walk the Belgian police insisted Newcastle fans walk as they would not allow us on buses or taxis.

Be aware ladies. I took my partner and the only ladies restroom in the away end is the solitary cubical in the male restrooms. An absolute disgrace in 2012 and the club should be ashamed of such poor facilities. It made our trip a real let down! Additionally, with the 7 mile round trip walk the Belgian police insisted Newcastle fans walk as they would not allow us on buses or taxis.
