The long and proud history of Olympique Lyonnais
Officially formed in 1950, the history of Olympique Lyonnais goes way back to 1899, when it was still part of the city's multi-sports club. After its new foundation in 1950, it achieved almost instant promotion to the first national division and has remained there almost ever since. Yet despite a relatively good performance, it wasn't until 2002 that the Olympique Lyonnais team made history by winning their first top division title - an honour that they managed to defend for seven consecutive years, until finally losing it to FC Girondins Bordeaux in 2009. Having beaten other major teams Paris Saint-Germain FC and Olympique de Marseille to achieve this initial win, the club suddenly became one to watch and, accordingly, its popularity soared. Attendance at Olympique Lyonnais matches has grown formidably in the 21st century and it is now one of the best-loved clubs in France, with supporters from not just Lyon but all over the country. Add to all this an impressive record in the European Championships and tickets for Olympique Lyonnais are in demand like never before.
Marvel at state-of-the-art Olympique Lyonnais stadium
The new Olympique Lyonnais stadium was opened in 2016 and seats just under 60,000 - if there's a large crowd at a home match, you're assured of an amazing atmosphere. The club's supporters, especially the 'Bad Gones (Bad Kids)' faction, are famous throughout Europe for their colourful displays in the stands. Olympique Lyonnais fixtures against arch-rivals Saint-étienne are particularly exciting, but when the team plays almost any other major French or European club, there is bound to be an electrically charged aura about the stadium. With top footballers like Karim Benzema, Juninho and Florent Malouda belonging to the ranks of former Olympique Lyonnais players, the club has developed a strong reputation for nurturing some of the greatest talent in professional football. Watch one of their matches and you may well be looking at a future star on the pitch. So, pick out your red, blue and white scarf and prepare to cheer mightily for this outstanding team - tickets for Olympique Lyonnais are available now to buy or sell on StubHub!
