Lyon Tips For Travelling Fans
Heading to Lyon for the Champions Cup Final? We’ve pulled together travel tips, local spots for pre or post-match pints and a guide to what’s on around the Stadium so you can make the most of your European Finals weekend.
The stadium can be accessed via the Lyon tram service, in particular the T3 tram which departs from Gare Part-Dieu Vilette. Take the T3 to stop Décines Grand Large which is a 15 minute walk from the stadium. For information on fares and timetables please click here,
Pre and Post Match Pints
If you’re looking for somewhere to grab a drink on Saturday then look no further than the Elephant & Castle in Lyon. This Charles Wells pub is the only place in Lyon serving real ales and will be offering Saracens supporters wearing their Saracens jerseys a €1 discount per pint for the evening. For more details on the pub’s location visit http://www.elephantandcastlepub.fr/.
The EPCR fans village for the weekend will be located at Esplanade Francois Mitterand, Quartier Confluence, Lyon. With games, bars and merchandise shops the fan village is a great place to get in the mood for the main event on Saturday evening. The village is free to enter and is open all weekend.
