ASVEL Basket or ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne is a French professional basketball team located in the city of Villeurbanne, which is a suburb of Lyon, France. The club, which is the basketball section of the ASVEL multi-sport club, competes in the French Pro A league. The club's home games are played at L'Astroballe. The players wear green and white uniforms.
The club's current president is former French tennis professional Hue Janis. In 2009, San Antonio Spurs star and French international Tony Parker bought a 20 percent stake in the club; he currently holds the ceremonial title of Vice President of Basketball Operations. Parker has the option to purchase an additional 20 percent and assume the club's presidency, presumably when he retires from the NBA.
The parent club was founded in 1948 with the merger of two multi-sport clubs in Lyon and vicinity; ASVEL is an acronym combining the names of the predecessor clubs—Association Sportive Villeurbanne and Éveil Lyonnais. ASVEL has won 17 French Championships, 8 French Cups, one Federation Cup, and one Semaine des As Cup, which makes it the most titled club in France.
