A second field for Rillieux-la-Pape!

On Wednesday 9 September, Sport dans la Ville kicked off its new sporting season and inaugurated a new pitch in the Lyon conurbation.

The inauguration of the new sports centre in the Velette district of Rillieux-la-Pape took place under a bright sunshine, including a "But en Or" football pitch and two "Défense de Zone" basketball courts. Sport dans la Ville now has two sports centres in Rillieux-la-Pape, to the delight of the young Rilliards.

On this occasion, a dozen players from Olympique Lyonnais and Lyon Women's Basketball came to support the association and meet the young athletes.

After a few words from the deputy mayor of Sports, Abdelhafid DAAS, Hubert Fournier, the coach of the OL and Alexandre Vincendet, mayor of Rillieux-la-Pape, the traditional cutting of the tricolour ribbon took place.
Nearly 350 young people were present and were able to participate in a signing session with the OL players. Then at 3:30 pm, the first soccer and basketball sessions started under the leadership of Mohamed METOUI and Marie GRANET, the two persons in charge of integration of the sector.
