International development

Assemble, unite, build.


For more than 10 years, Olympique Lyonnais has chosen to engage internationally through a model based on sharing the club's world-renowned expertise in both training and women's football.

Strong values such as excellence, equality, communication and sustainability have served as the basis for the success that the club has had on every continent.

"Our international development is based, above all, on our values. Values of sustainability, but also the values of training and diversity.

Our ambition is to unite our community of partners over time around a language, that encompasses a common vision of football."

Jean-Michel Aulas


Consistently recognised among the top three clubs in Europe in terms of player development over the last ten years, Olympique Lyonnais is developing technical collaborations aimed at adapting OL’s expertise for various different professional clubs, federations and elite academies.

These bespoke collaborations centre around the vision of each partner, supported by OL’s staff. These experts from the club’s academy work to transfer skills that focus on all aspects of high-level football, ranging from instruction philosophy to the training of educators, recruitment or development in the medical and athletic performance fields.
