History & Description

The stadium, located in the commune of Villeurbanne, has a capacity of over 49,000 spectators. Groupama Stadium is the brand-new home of Olympique Lyonnais. It replaced Stade de Gerland as Lyon's home ground and has a capacity of over 49,000 spectators. Lyon had been looking to build a new stadium as early as 2007, but saw earlier proposals delayed due to local opposition and a lack of funding because of the financial crisis. The project received the final push when France got awarded the Euro 2016 tournament and Lyon was selected as a host city.

Lyon received their building permit in February 2012, and construction work began that year. However, delays postponed the expected completion date from the summer of 2014 to January 2016.

The stadium, located in the north-west of the city, has a capacity of 49,000 and is designed by Argentine architect Rafael Moneo. Lyonnais Stadium officially opened on January 9th with a Lyon v Troyes match (4-1). The stadium has a capacity of 49,000 and was designed by Argentine architect Rafael Moneo.

The stadium has a capacity of 59,186 seats, of which about 6,000 business seats and 105 lodges. It was a cost of roughly $600 million, including almost $190 million for improvements in infrastructure.

Parc Olympique Lyonnais hosted four group matches during Euro 2016, including a match between France and Rep. of Ireland (2-1), and the semi-final between Portugal and Wales (2-0).

In 2017, the stadium was renamed Groupama Stadium after a 3-year naming rights deal with insurance firm Groupama.

Groupama Stadium has been selected to host the 2018 Europa League final.

How to get to Groupama Stadium

Groupama Stadium is located in the Lyon suburb Décines, in the east of the city. It's just over 10 kilometres from Lyon's city centre. Turn left onto the motorway and drive until you see the stadium on your right. The stadium is easily reached by car on the N346 from the A42 in the north or A43 in the south. Exit 6 will take you to the motorway. Drive until you see the stadium on your right.

If using public transport, one can reach the stadium by tram. The stadium is only a 10-minute walk from the station Decines Grand Large of tram line 3, which runs just north of the stadium. On matchdays, a special branch will bring you right in front of the stadium. Line 3 departs from Gare Part-Dieu on the eastern edge of Lyon's city center.

Eat, drink, and sleep near Groupama Stadium

The Parc Olympique Lyonnais is located near the city center in a quiet suburb. There is little around in terms of eating and drinking apart from the odd fast-food restaurant, which means that it is best done in Lyon's pleasant city center. Most people will also decide to find a hotel in the centre of Lyon. Though, if you want to stay close to the stadium, then there are a few roadside hotels around. These hotels will likely most appeal to those arriving by car.

The Hotel Grand Est and the B&B Hotel Lyon Meyzieu are both decent mid-range options located close to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais. For an overview of hotels near the park, click here.

Relevant Internet links

Olweb.fr is the official website of Olympique Lyonnais. Lyon-france.com is a Lyon tourist information website. Tcl.fr is a public transport information website for the Lyon agglomeration. If you want to attend a soccer match at Parc OL, but don't want to endure a long walk or huge crowds, then this solution is for you. You can get a similar Parc OL special from the esplanade, but it's much less walking and there are smaller crowds for boarding both before and after the match. This option is best if you're staying close to metro lines A or B and/or have tickets in the north end of the stadium. Or take metro line D to Grange Blanche, change to tram T5 to Eurexpo, and then take the free shuttle buses to the stadium - these leave every 20 or 30 seconds so loading is quick, and arrival point is more convenient for the south end.

I have been a season ticket holder at this stadium since it opened; it is indeed a trek from the city center. Here are my tips about getting there on public transit:

This is because, although it travels the shortest route, it also has the highest frequency of departures and arrivals, meaning that you?ll spend more time on your journey than you would if you used one of the other options. Unless arriving by SNCF, the best strategy is to avoid using the Parc OL shuttle from Part-Dieu Station. This shuttle travels the shortest route but has high frequency of departures and arrivals, meaning that you will spend more time on your journey than if you used one of the other options.

Option 1: Take the Metro to La Soie-Vaulx-en-Velin. There, you'll find a similar Parc OL special to the same esplanade, but it's a lot less walking and crowds for boarding both before and after the match are much smaller. This solution is best if you're staying close to Metro lines A or B and/or have tickets in the north end of the stadium.

Take metro line D to Grange Blanche, change to tram T5 to Eurexpo, then take free shuttle buses to the stadium. They leave every 20 or 30 seconds so loading is quick and arrival point is more convenient for the south end.

After getting on what I thought was a free shuttle service before the game, I soon found out it was actually the commute home. The ride home was an hour long and it was raining hard. Despite that, it was still a great day.

I got on what I thought was a free shuttle service before the game, but it was actually the commute home. It was an hour until I got on a tram, and many thousands more were still waiting. It was tipping down, and it was a great day though.

Overall, I thought the stadium was really nice. The support was really supportive. Unfortunately, I totally misjudged the atmosphere in Marseille - Lyon fans were much louder. If you're looking to attend a game there, I would definitely recommend going to Lyon instead!

The stadium is overall nice and the fans are supportive. However, I was expecting more of an atmosphere in Marseille given that the same game was being played there. The Lyon fans were louder and I would recommend going to a game there.
