The Bosuilstadion is an association football stadium in the city of Antwerp, Belgium. The stadium was first opened in 1923 and is since then the home of Royal Antwerp FC.[1] It has a capacity of 16,649, of which 800 indoor VIP seats, 13,253 outdoor seats and 2,596 standing places.[2] It is located in the district of Deurne.

The Bosuilstadion hosted the 1964 European Cup Winners' Cup Final second leg, which sealed the victory of Sporting Clube de Portugal against MTK Budapest FC. It also hosted the UEFA Euro 1972 semifinal between Belgium and West Germany, won by West Germany. A large number of friendly international games of Belgium were played at the Bosuil, many of which against the Netherlands.
