History and description

Stade Marcel Verchere has mostly been used for rugby during its history being the home of US Bressane. It became the home of FBBP 01 following their promotion to Ligue 2 in 2015. Previously the club had played at the smaller Stade Municipal de Peronnas, which did not meet Ligue 2 standards.

Stade Marcel Verchere consists of three stands: a grandstand built in 2007, a terrace behind the goal, and the newly built North Stand across the grandstand. The new North Stand was completed in October 2017.
