Had a look at aer lingus, seem to stop the Lyon flights at the end of March and do not start again until end of May??

Playing the Challenge final the night before in the same venue (59k). That's a bold call!

Both finals will take place at the brand new 59,000-capacity Grand Stade de Lyon which is set for completion early next year. The Challenge Cup decider will go ahead on Friday, 13 May 2016, with the Champions Cup final played the following day to bring the curtain down on the 21st season of European club rugby.

Book your hotels in Clermont and drive to Lyon with ASM fans.

You can't play a final as close to Clermont.
Lot of fans will book tickets and go to Lyon without knowing who will play.

So if you play and ASM does'nt, I guess that you will have a lot of yellow supporters.
