After consultation with the most eminent specialists as well as the Prefecture of the Rhône, the club has defined the specifics of its contribution to respond in the most pragmatic way possible to the most urgent needs, in particular in our Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
 
Olympique Lyonnais has therefore decided, through its Foundation, to immediately allocate a total of 300,000 euros to aid the management of this crisis, which will be divided into two main areas:
 
- 100,000 euros to finance via the Hospices Civils de Lyon Foundation (HCL), the two clinical research projects carried out by teams of medical researchers from the Hospices Civils de Lyon, and
 
- 200,000 euros to meet the emergency needs of our territory (materials and equipment for the Hospital, aid to the most vulnerable).
 
OL Foundation officials have made direct contact today, with the HCL Foundation to inform them of this donation, as well as with the Prefecture to identify the territory's priority needs to which the Foundation can devote its help.

Olympique Lyonnais reiterates the urgent need to comply with all of the directives issued to limit the spread of this virus as much as possible and supports all the healthcare personnel which they want to help as they need it.
