OL Fondation : participez à un record du monde !
Olympique Lyonnais and the OL Foundation support Equal Playing Field's (EPF) "Football Festival" in Lyon in its attempt to establish a third Guinness Book record: the number of players participating in a single game.



The match will be held on the grounds of the OL Academy in Meyzieu from June 27 to 1 July. This sporting and solidarity event will bring together participants from around the world, men and women, young and old, towards a common goal.


This ambitious project is supported by the Equal Playing Field non-profit, which has already organized the highest (Mount Kilimanjaro) and lowest (Dead Sea) football matches in the world. More than 3,000 people are expected to break the current record of 2,357 players spread over four days (an uninterrupted match, day and night).

Breaking this world record will allow us to raise awareness on issues of gender equality in sport, a few days before the final stages of the Women's World Cup, to be held at Groupama Stadium, since women will make up 70% of the participants.

If you want to take part in this international gathering around the values of sport, register as an individual or form a team of 11 people, provided it includes at least seven women.
