Olympique Lyonnais is one of the most popular clubs in France, with 11% of the country's population supporting the club. Lyon shares this number with Paris Saint-Germain and trails only Olympique de Marseille with regard to fan base. But Lyon do hold the honor of being the richest club in the country, having generated an annual revenue stream of €131.9 million.
In 2013, business magazine Forbes ranked Lyon as the 15th most valuable football team in the world.

Lyon have used a variety of radical kits in recent years but it seemed the blue and red striped shirts they originally wore in the seventies have bought them most luck as they have won six of their seven Ligue 1 titles wearing it.
