The earliest mention of Leuven is from 891, when a Viking army was defeated by the Frankish Arnulf of Carinthia. According to a legend the city's white and blue coat of arms dates from this event. The oldest known picture showing Leuven is from around 1488 (the town hall tower). A second seal for the city exists, dating back to 1559. Leuven has a long sporting tradition: in 1856 it became home to one of Belgium's first football clubs, KVV Concordia. In 1972 it hosted the European Cup Winners' Cup final between Rangers and Dynamo Moscow (1–0), after extra time in front of 32000 spectators at Stadion Feijenoord on 9 May 1972. It was also host to Euro 2000 where France beat Italy 2–1 in extra time thanks to golden goal scored by David Trezeguet as well as group stages during Euro 2008 which saw Spain defeat Russia 3-2 with an injury time winner.
