Opened in January 2016, the home of Olympique Lyonnais has since hosted a series of international events, including rugby. OL Stadium had been open for only four months when the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup finals were played at the new stadium. 

In November, 2017, a France XV were beaten 28-23 by New Zealand in front of 58,607 fans. At the end of that season, OL Stadium was chosen as the venue for the Top 14 semi-finals. The city, meanwhile, has a rich rugby pedigree. Stade de Gerland played host to matches at RWC 2007, while the city boasts a two-time French champion club in the shape of Lyon OU. 

OL Stadium hosted matches during both UEFA Euro 2016 and the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019, while the Coupe de la Ligue final and UEFA Europa League final have also been played on its hybrid grass. 

Wales and Australia are scheduled to compete in the first RWC 2023 match at the stadium, and with hosts France, Italy and New Zealand also due to pass through the city, fans with tickets for Lyon should be in for a treat.
