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 entertainent 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 its new stadium was inaugurated in January 2016, OL Groupe has had full ownership of it, like all the other top European clubs.
This ultra-modern, multi-purpose stadium, open 365 days a year, constitutes a major new source of medium-term growth for the Group. In addition, training and developing young players in the OL Academy, one of the best in Europe, remains a pillar of the Group's strategy. It provides a pipeline of talented young players for the first-team squad and creates substantial value for the Group. Leveraging these strengths and its sound financial condition, OL Groupe continues to pursue a strategy of sustained, elite-level performance by its playing squads to underpin its growth and development, both domestically and internationally. Its objective is to rank among the top European clubs in the medium term.
