Stade de Gerland

For the 1998 Football World Cup, the team of architects Agibat-Constantin restructured the two ends of the stadium which were covered with a textile canvas. The stadium has 43,051 seats. Two large bronze lion statues stand on either side of the main entrance. They originally stood on Pont la Feuillée and were recovered from the river Saône after the bridge was bombarded in 1945. Mayor Louis Pradel saved them from the smelter and had them placed at the stadium in 1964.
