The football temple of Bruges is undoubtedly the Jan Breydel Stadium. Built in 1974, the sports complex can accommodate some 29,000 spectators who come along and cheer on their favourite team. In the appropriate colour combination of course, as it is the home of the two Bruges football teams: Club Brugge (Blue-Black) and Cercle Brugge (Green-Black).

Cercle Brugge, founded in 1899, is one of the oldest football clubs in Belgium. They were the first Flemish national champions in 1911 and nowadays have 3 national titles and 2 cup victories to their name.
