Club info
A classic team in European competition, Asvel Lyon Villeurbanne will look to reclaim its place among the European elite this season as it enters the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Rounds. After Asvel Lyon Metropole suffered an early exit in the French League playoffs and was unable to get out of a tough Eurocup regular season group, the club returns with renewed ambitions. Asvel was one of the first powers in the French League with 15 championships between 1949 and 1981 and has remained among its country's elite clubs for the past few decades. In the 1990s, Asvel won several cups, made the 1997 Euroleague Final Four and reached the French League finals in five out of six seasons. It again conquered the French League crown in the spring of 2002 when Asvel roared through the playoffs and swept archrival Pau-Orthez in the finals to earn its first domestic crown in 21 years. That success carried over to the 2002-03 Euroleague season as Asvel advanced to the Top 16. Asvel played the Euroleague for several seasons before making its ULEB Cup debut in 2005-06, when it reached the quarterfinals. In the 2007-08 season, Asvel missed the ULEB Cup Last 16 by a single point and fell a victory short of reaching the French League title game. Asvel did better in the 2008-09 season, with Vincent Collet as head coach, reaching the French League final and downing Orleans to claim its 17th title. The triumph also secured the club a return to the Euroleague for the 2009-10 season, but a 2-point loss in a do-or-die regular season finale prevented Asvel from reaching the Top 16. Asvel bounced back by winning the Semaine des As title, however the cupboard has been bare since. Nevertheless, an organized front office backed by young talent, a great fan base and tradition could have Asvel back among the European elite in no time.
