Club: Oud-Heverlee Leuven | Opening: 1960s | Capacity: 10,020 seats
History and description
King Power at Den Dreef, previously known as Stadion Den Dreef, had long been in use as a cycling track, but in the late 1960s was turned into a modest football stadium.
The stadium became the home of Oud-Heverlee Leuven after they were formed in a merger of three clubs in 2002. In the next years, Stadion Den Dreef got almost completely rebuilt with a new main stand and makeshift stands built over the athletics track.
The main stand got further extended in 2012, adding another 800 seats to the ground.
Following the promotion of the club to Belgium’s top league, plans were made for an extensive redevelopment of the ground, consisting of three phases including a new stand opposite the main stand, new stands in the corners, and a new stand behind the goal. This would result in a capacity of 12,500 seats.
In 2016, phase 1 of the redevelopment got completed with the opening of a new stand on the side, but phase 2 and 3 got halted when OHL relegated to the second division.
