Tony Parker, president of LDLC ASVEL

"This warms my heart. If somebody had told me five years ago that we would be here now, I would never have imagined it. I want to thank everyone who participated in this project. It's a whole team. I am really proud to be associated with OL. It's a historic day. This is just the beginning I think. We will experience great moments together, we really want to. Our ambition is great. OL has always been an example for us. We can all progress together. We will stay at the Astroballe with a goal to make it even more beautiful. Our base will always be the Astroballe. The new hall will meet the specifications for the Euroleague. We can trust the President and OL Groupe. We've signed the biggest deal French basketball history."

"This is a project with the future in mind. And for that it's important to know where we came from, where we are and where we are going. We will continue our journey. Keeping our heads in the stars and our feet on the ground is the best way to describe how everybody here is feeling." 


Marie-Sophie Obama, deputy chair of LDLC ASVEL

"This merger with Groupe OL allows us to be ambitious... We have always had respect and humility in relation to the performances of OL Féminin."
