Parc des Princes
The Parc Olympique Lyonnais, nicknamed the Parc OL, is a 59,186-seat stadium in Décines-Charpieu, close to Lyon. Its other name is Stade des Lumières, named after Lumière brothers who invented moving pictures.

The venue is located in the south-west of the French capital, inside the 16th arrondissement of Paris, in the immediate vicinity of the Stade Jean-Bouin (rugby venue) and within walking distance from the Stade Roland Garros (tennis venue).

The stadium, with a seating capacity of 48,583 spectators, has been the home pitch of Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain since 1974. Before the opening of the Stade de France in 1998, it was also the home arena of the French national football and rugby union teams. The Parc des Princes pitch is surrounded by four covered all-seater stands, officially known as the Présidentielle Francis Borelli, Auteuil, Paris and Boulogne Stands.

Stade Auguste-Delaune

Stade Auguste-Delaune

The Stade des Alpes is a rugby and football stadium in Grenoble, France. The stadium seats 20,068 and hosts the home games of Grenoble Foot 38 and the FC Grenoble rugby club. Situated in Paul Mistral Park, it replaced their stadium Stade Lesdiguières. It was built while GF38 played in the top divisions of French football, and had become somewhat of a white elephant now that the club plays in the 4th division and attracts few fans. However, the stadium gained greater viability once FC Grenoble earned their most recent promotion to the Top 14 in 2012. Since 2014–15, with FC Grenoble now consolidated in Top 14, the club have changed their primary home from their traditional ground, Stade Lesdiguières, to Stade des Alpes.

This stadium uses solar panels and produces more than 70,000 kWh per year.

Stade de Lyon

Stade de Lyon, also known as the Stade des Lumieres, is located in the eastern suburb of Decines-Charpieu. The ground belongs to resident club Lyon and opened its doors in 2016 after four years of construction work. Venue for six matches at UEFA EURO 2016 and capable of welcoming 58,215 spectators, it is the third largest stadium in France in terms of capacity and one of the most modern.

Stade des Alpes

Located in the centre of Grenoble close to Paul-Mistral Park, the 20,068-capacity Stade des Alpes was built on the site of the Stade Charles-Berty, which was demolished in 2003. The stadium has been home to GF38 since it opened in February 2008 and now plays host to rugby side FC Grenoble Rugby as well, while also having welcomed international football. France's men's team overcame Ecuador 2-0 at the Stade des Alpes in a warm-up game ahead of UEFA EURO 2008, and the women's side appeared there for the first time in 2016, during a tour of candidate cities for the FIFA Women's World Cup™ 2019. That same year, the French Women's Cup final was held at the ground.
