The Stade Geoffroy Guichard and the Musée des Verts

This legendary stadium, built in 1931, is an international icon for its supporters who are renowned for their unparalleled fervour.
A temple to football in France, it takes its name from the founder of the Casino supermarket chain whose head office is in Saint-Étienne. Geoffrey Guichard was also the owner of the land on which the stadium was built. It is nicknamed ‘The Cauldron’, originally after the smoke from local factories that used to surround it, but now in reference to the passion of its fans.

Located in one of the stadium’s stands, the Musée des Verts was the first French museum dedicated to football and the ASSE (Association Sportive de Saint-Etienne), and is designed to take you on a journey through former glories.

Whether you are a supporter of Les Verts or simply love football, emotions run high at the Musée des Verts.
With almost 1,000 objects on display, along with testimonials and reports, visitors are immersed in the history of Les Verts and the ASSE – the legendary club and its moment of glory in 1976, the famous ‘square posts’ and players’ shirts...
