The WDSF World Breaking Championship will take place at Ladeuzeplein in Leuven between 22 and 24 September 2023. The Ladeuzeplein is a large square in the historical centre of Leuven, located in front of the University Library. Since 2022, the Ladeuzeplein has been the new location for the well-known breaking event Unbreakable.

The Ladeuzeplein will feature an eye-catching covered breaking arena with stands with a total capacity of 2,500 spectators. The warm-up area is open to the public and is located under the galleries of the library on Ladeuzeplein.

Thirsty or fancy a snack? The stands next to the arena on Ladeuzeplein will serve a wide range of drinks and snacks for those who need a break and want to recover from the excitement and tension of the battle.


The audience area is the place to meet some of our partners and try out interesting and fun activities. So, come down from the stands and come here to relax between battles!

We are also committed to sustainability in terms of sanitary facilities. In the sanitary block of the public plaza you will find recycled toilet paper.

The banners that cannot be reused at another event are recycled so that they can be reused in the production of new banners.
