At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

An Olympic stadium.

The Stade de Gerland de Lyon is one of the oldest stadiums in France. Listed as a historical monument, Stade de Gerland has undergone major changes over the years.
Initially in 1920, the architect Tony Garnier created a sports stadium that could host large popular events. He drew inspiration from Roman arenas in his design that is characterised by a peripheral gallery sitting on a green embankment and monumentalised by 4 large symbolic gates. It was inaugurated by Edouard Herriot in 1926.
Its initial capacity was around 30,000 and it has been remodelled several times, most notably in 1998, for the football World Cup.
