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.

Another European stadium which looks more impressive on TV than it actually is in reality. The ground consists of four separate stands, each with what appears to be a moat in front of it. The two ends behind the goals are quite some way from...More
