King Baudouin Stadium

Short notice incentives to see Usain Bolt in Brussels

The internationally famous track and field event, known as Memorial van Damme, has been held in Brussels annually since 1977. This was the year when Belgium’s star athlete, Ivo van Damme, died prematurely in a car crash.
The event is to be held this year at the King Baudouin Stadium on September 11 and it is being highlighted as a great opportunity for an incentive with a difference. Two of the competitors, Usain Bolt and the paralympian Marieke Vervoort, are visitor attractions in themselves. There will be musical interludes during the games and a magnificent fireworks spectacular will feature at the close.
