ORGANISED AROUND OLYMPIQUE LYONNAIS, THE FOOTBALL CLUB FOUNDED IN 1950 AND HEADED BY JEAN-MICHEL AULAS SINCE 1987, OL GROUPE IS A LEADER IN THE ENTERTAINMENT AND MEDIA SECTOR IN FRANCE.
The Group's activities are articulated around six complementary sources of revenue:
- SPONSORING AND ADVERTISING
- MEDIA AND MARKETING RIGHTS
- BRAND-RELATED REVENUE (derivative products, image/video, etc.),
- PLAYER TRADING
Since the inauguration of its new stadium in January 2016, OL Groupe has had full ownership of its stadium, like all the other major European clubs.
Operation of this ultra-modern, multi-functional stadium, open 365 days a year, constitutes a major new source of medium-term growth for the Group. In addition, training young players in the OL Academy, France's leading football training academy, remains a pillar of the Group's strategy. The Academy represents a pool of talented young players for the professional team and is an important source of value creation for the Group. Leveraging these strengths and a sound financial condition, OL Groupe focuses on generating recurrent elite sporting performance from its professional teams to support its growth and development, both domestically and internationally, and plans to be one of the leading European clubs in the medium term.
