Matmut Stadium

Development of new stands for Lyon Lou Rugby Club

Our work on behalf of Lyon’s Lou Rugby Club is an incredible demonstration of what you could achieve in partnership with Stadia by GL events. The entire stadium, including all ancillary buildings, was constructed using our demountable, modular solutions.

Hybrid system

This stadium development showcases our hybrid system, which allowed us to even further simplify the construction process; effectively building a temporary grandstand on permanent foundations, erecting a cantilevered steel roof and shrouding the whole structure in profiled steel cladding.

Turnkey solution

We constructed two covered grandstands for Lyon Rugby, with a combined capacity to hold 8,000 seated spectators. We then installed space-maximising concession stands, retail outlets, meeting rooms and first aid offices – all housed within the steel understructure.


Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this build was the timeframe. We took just 82 days to power through the entire build from the ground up; allowing work to be undertaken in between playing seasons; which both minimised disruption and enabled the club’s sporting calendar to continue uninterrupted.
