Olympique Lyonnais Féminin (French pronunciation: ​[ɔlɛ̃pik ljɔnɛ]; commonly referred to as Olympique Lyon, Lyon, or simply OL) is a French women's football club based in Lyon. It is the most successful club in the history of Division 1 Féminine with fourteen league titles as Olympique Lyonnais and four league titles as FC Lyon before the acquisition. The club has been the female section of Olympique Lyonnais since 2004. Lyon currently plays in the Division 1 Féminine and are the defending champions, having won the league for thirteen consecutive seasons.

Since the 2010s, Lyon has often been named the strongest women's team in the world,[1] and has been cited as a model for the development of women's football, both in economic and in cultural terms.[2] The team has won six Champions League titles including a record four successive titles from 2016 to 2019, as well as 13 consecutive domestic league titles from 2007 to 2019.

History[edit]

The club was formed as the women's section of FC Lyon in 1970. In 2004, the women's club became the women's section of Olympique Lyonnais. Since joining Lyon, the women's section has won the Division 1 Féminine ten times and seven Coupe de France titles. Lyon reached the semi-finals of the 2007–08 edition of the UEFA Women's Cup and, during the 2009–10 season, reached the final of the inaugural edition of the UEFA Women's Champions League losing to German club Turbine Potsdam 7–6 on penalties.[3][4] In the following season, Lyon finally captured the UEFA Women's Champions League defeating its nemesis Turbine Potsdam 2–0 in the 2011 final. It successfully defended its title in 2012, defeating FFC Frankfurt in the final.

Lyon hosts its matches at the Groupama OL training Center, a 1,524-capacity stadium that is situated not far from the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, where the male sections play. The women's team does host its "big" matches at the 55,000-seat stadium. The president of the club is Jean-Michel Aulas and the captain of the team is Wendie Renard. According to the UEFA women's coefficient, currently, Lyon is the highest-ranked club in UEFA.[5]
