The Heysel Stadium visit..

The Heysel Stadium disaster occurred on 29 May 1985 when escaping fans were pressed against a wall in the Heysel Stadium in Brussels, Belgium, as a result of rioting before the start of the 1985 European Cup Final between Liverpool and Juventus of Italy. Thirty-nine Juventus fans died and 600 were injured. Today I had an opportunity to visit Heysel Stadium and see the memorial stone erected in the memory of those who died.
