What did Heysel Stadium become known for in 1985?

A giant fight

Explanation

In 1985, Heysel Stadium in Brussels became the scene of one of the worst tragedies ever in the history of football. Before the European Cup final between Juventus and Liverpool a giant fight between hooligans from the two clubs broke out. The fans panicked, and all in all, 39 were killed and 600 injured. Juventus won the match on a penalty scored by Michel Platini. English teams were barred from all European football for five years following the incident. Since 1995, Heysel has been known as "King Baudouin Stadium".
