Belgian FA seeking alternative stadium

BRUSSELS, Jan 26 (Reuters) - The Belgian Football Association said on Thursday it was seeking alternative venues to the King Boudewijn stadium for forthcoming fixtures because of safety concerns.

The former Heysel stadium was the site of the 1985 disaster when 39 people died after a riot between Juventus and Liverpool fans before the European Cup final.

An FA spokesman said it was unlikely Belgian's Cup final and forthcoming international fixtures would be scheduled at their traditional home.

'We are looking at other options,' he said. 'There are plenty of other stadiums so we are not too worried.'

Belgian authorities says the stadium has insufficient fire exits, which are also too narrow, while many seats are loose and the steps to the main stand are not wide enough.
