KEY FACTS & FEATURES
Stade Pierre Mauroy, earlier referred to as Grand Stade Lille Métropole, was built to provide Lille OSC with a new and modern home.
Lille’s original home was Stade Grimonprez-Jooris, where they played until 2004 when they moved away to Stade Lille-Métropole in the hope of redeveloping Stade Grimonprez-Jooris. Plans led to nothing though, and the club instead focused on building a new stadium at a site close to Stade Lille-Métropole.
Stade Pierre Mauroy is located in the Lille suburb of Villeneuve d’Ascq about 6 kilometres south-east of Lille’s city centre and main railway station.=
If using public transport, Stade Pierre Maroy is easy to reach by metro. Metro station Cité Scientifique and 4 Cantons Grand Stade both lie a short walk away from the stadium. Both are on metro line 1, which can be boarded in Lille’s city centre and at the main railway station Gare Lille Flanders. Gare Lille Europe, where the Eurostar trains arrive, is a short walk away from Gare Lille Flanders.
