The club was formed as the women's section of FC Lyon in 1970. In 2004, the women's club became the women's section of Olympique Lyonnais. Since joining Lyon, the women's section has won the Division 1 Féminine ten times and seven Coupe de France titles. Lyon reached the semi-finals of the 2007–08 edition of the UEFA Women's Cup and, during the 2009–10 season, reached the final of the inaugural edition of the UEFA Women's Champions League losing to German club Turbine Potsdam 7–6 on penalties.[3][4] In the following season, Lyon finally captured the UEFA Women's Champions League defeating its nemesis Turbine Potsdam 2–0 in the 2011 final. It successfully defended its title in 2012, defeating FFC Frankfurt in the final.

Lyon hosts its matches at the Groupama OL training Center, a 1,524-capacity stadium that is situated not far from the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, where the male sections play. The women's team does host its "big" matches at the 55,000-seat stadium. The president of the club is Jean-Michel Aulas and the captain of the team is Wendie Renard. According to the UEFA women's coefficient, currently, Lyon is the highest-ranked club in UEFA.[5]
