Stade du Rhône is an athletics stadium located in the Parc de Parilly in the commune of Venissieux in Lyon, France.

History[edit]

The Stadium was initially built as the Parilly Stadium, but it was renamed Stade du Rhône in 2012 after a major renovation in preparation for the 2013 IPC Athletics World Championships. The newly development was inaugurated on 3 September 2012 and the main grandstand was named Tribune Tony Bertrand.[1]
