Stade Gerland

Stade Gerland Football Stadium is still currently the home ground of the French Ligue 1 club Olypique Lyonnais. The stadium is built in 1914 by the famous Lyon architect Tony Garnier, which makes it one of the oldest stadiums in France and so venerable that it belongs to the list of national Historical Monuments. Olympique Lyonnais has played at the Stade de Gerland since 1950, the year of the club's foundation.

In the near future, Gerland Stadium becomes the venue of the second division rugby team Lyon University Club (LOU). The Olympique Lyonnais will move to a larger stadium in the Lyon suburb of Décines 12km east of the city centre, called Stade des Lumières.

The new ground will have a capacity of 59,000 seats. It will also include state-of-the-art sporting facilities, two hotels, a leisure center, and commercial and business offices.
