We visited this stadium to watch the Lyon Olympique Universitaire (LOU) v Bordeaux-Begles Top 14 Rugby Match and afterwards ate at the LOU Brasserie. A fantastic experience both on and off the pitch.

Stade Gerland is a beautiful stadium where you can see one of the biggest European football clubs. We attended the match against Zenit and were a little dissapointed of the performance of the team. But eitherway we loved the team and the supporters. Very beautiful...More

I was lucky to be in Lyon this last summer to visit this stadium. A friendly game between Olympique Lyonais and AC Milan was a great opportunity to see this stadium from the inside.
