This equipment is located in the heart of the city of Le Creusot, close to all the necessary services and shops (hotels / restaurants / landscaped park / leisure park, etc.) for an optimal training environment. Completely renovated in 2020, the Jean Garnier stadium is an essential reference today and can radiate beyond its perimeter thanks to an exceptional transport service: 1h30 by TGV train to Paris (Gare de Lyon), 40 minutes to reach the center of Lyon by TGV and 1h50 by motorway to reach Saint-Exupéry airport (Lyon). With many adjoining rooms that allow the installation of medical and technical teams (physiotherapists, physical trainers, etc.), this latest generation stadium offers cutting-edge preparation for the most demanding athletes who want to combine high-level training with the comfort of a unique site placed at the crossroads of the great Burgundian wines, the Morvan mountains and the Charolais countryside, renowned for its gastronomy.
