This Sunday, April 14, 2024, a Lyon supporter found a newly born kitten under a seat at Groupama Stadium during an Olympique Lyonnais match against Brest. The French Rescuers from the Croix Blanche du Rhône came to his aid before adopting the animal.

A match that the trainers will not soon forget. This Sunday, April 14, 2024, Olympique Lyonnais faced Brest in a 4-3 match. While the Lyonnais Alexandre Lacazette was taken care of by the emergency services after being hit by the Brest goalkeeper Marco Bizot, the rescuers were also called for another rescue, that of a kitten.

The latter was found by an Olympique Lyonnais supporter under his seat. French rescue workers from the White Cross of the Rhone came quickly to help.

Marion, member of the association, explained to the Progrès that’an Ultra from the Bad Gone group had brought them the kitten "in a cup".  "We picked up the kitten, put him in a safe place, warmed him in a small survival blanket that we had cut out", Marion explained to the regional newspaper.

Named "Brest"

The rescuers then called a veterinarian. "He told us that the kitten was two or three days old. His eyes were still closed, he still had the umbilical cord. He's really small. This is the first time in almost twenty years of first aid at OL that we have welcomed a cat. We decided to call it Brest", smiles Marion.

The kitten was then adopted by two rescuers. "They feed it every three hours. Brest is growing and doing very well", assures Marion. The team created a WhatsApp group so that everyone could have daily news about the little cat, who is becoming their mascot.
