Olympique Lyonnais has announced an innovative new collaboration with global ticketing company viagogo, to make it easier for international fans to buy tickets at the Stade de Gerland.
As the official international ticketing partner of Olympique Lyonnais, viagogo will offer tickets to all of the club’s home games across its network of 55 global websites and will solely be focused on helping to sell more tickets for Olympique Lyonnais.
Xavier Pierrot, Stadium Manager at Olympique Lyonnais, commented: “As French football continues to develop its revenues and broaden its international appeal, we needed a ticketing partner that could help us reach our overseas fans.
“We chose to work with viagogo because of its international footprint and innovative technology platform, which enables people to search for tickets in their own language and pay in their own currency. With viagogo, we are delighted to have found the right partner to help our club continue growing its revenues and its global fanbase.”
Damien van Eeckhout, a French spokesperson for viagogo, commented: “Customers in more than 160 countries use our service and we always work closely with our partners around the world to develop the best ticketing solution for their respective markets. Our partnership with Olympique Lyonnais breaks new ground in France and we are delighted to be working together to expand distribution and bring more international fans to the Stade de Gerland and the Grand Stade.”
