History and description

The Luminus Arena was originally called the Cristal Arena, and it is home to Thor Waterschei. After Waterschei merged with Winterslag to form KRC Genk in 1988, the newly formed club initially decided to use Winterslag's ground, but after two years the club moved back to the André Dumontstadion. Meanwhile, a new main stand had been erected and its name was changed to Thyl Gheyselinckstadion.

The increased successes of the club in the late 1990s led to a major redevelopment program that aimed to turn the stadium into a modern arena. The first phase of this program involved construction of two new two-tiered covered stands. This was followed by a sponsorship deal that resulted in the stadium being renamed Fenix Stadion.

In 2002, the South Stand got rebuilt in a style similar to the other new stands, and a few years later the main stand got extensively renovated, resulting in an enclosed stadium.

In 2007, the naming rights of the stadium were sold to beer brewer Alken-Maes. Alken-Maes named the stadium after local beer brand Cristal. In 2016, the stadium changed name to Luminus Arena following a new sponsorship deal.

Genk has at times considered expanding the Luminus Arena to either 35,000 or 44,000 places, but currently there are no actual plans for this.

How to get to the Luminus Arena

The Luminus Arena is located in Genk, approximately 5.5 kilometers from the city center and main railway station. From the railway station, take bus G1 in the direction of Zwartberg. Get off at stop Waterschei Kerkhof (or Nieuw Texas) after an approximate 28-minute journey. Buses generally go once every half an hour.

Several direct trains connect Genk with Hasselt, the regional capital, which makes connections to other destinations in Belgium including Antwerp, Liege, and Brussels. The trip from Hasselt to Genk takes about 20 minutes and there is also an hourly direct train from Brussels Sud station to Genk, taking about 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Address: Stadionplein 4, 3600 Genk

Eat, drink, and sleep near the Luminus Arena

The Luminus Arena is located just outside of the city, bordering a quiet residential area. There are few restaurants or bars in the area, which makes it better to do your eating and drinking in Genk's town center. There are no hotels near the Luminus Arena, but you can choose to stay in hotels in Genk's city center or in other towns. See the overview to see where they are. Alternatively, you can stay in Hasselt, Maastricht, or elsewhere.

Genk Tickets

Tickets for Genk games can be purchased online, at the Ticketshop at the Luminus Arena (closed on Mondays and Sundays), or at any of the Group Bruno sales outlets (until noon on the day of the match). If tickets are still available, these can be bought from the ticket windows of the stadium from two hours before kickoff. The Genk stadium has an average attendance of just under 20,000 and it occasionally sells out high-profile matches, so for high-profile matches, booking in advance is recommended.

Prices for tickets to a game range from $18.50 for a seat in the corners or behind the goal to $28.50 for a seat at the main stand. Standing costs $16.00. Prices are increased with $2.50 for a few high-profile matches.

Luminus Arena stadium tours

Guided stadium tours of KRC Genk's VIP facilities, press areas, training ground, and the interactive football museum GoalMine are offered by the club. The open stadium tour runs every first Saturday of the month and starts at 1:30 pm. The tour lasts for three hours, with one hour dedicated to the GoalMine museum and two hours to the stadium tour.

No reservations are necessary, and the tour will still take place even if fewer people show up. The cost of the tour is ?11.00.
