The Stade Marcel-Michelin is a stadium located in Clermont-Ferrand, France. It was inaugurated in 1911 and belongs to the rugby union club ASM Clermont-Auvergne. It has the name of Marcel Michelin, manager of the Michelin tire group and founder of the sportive association "Association Sportive Michelin" . Then it has been renamed AS Montferrand, and ASM Clermont-Auvergne for the rugby department. Even if it’s the property of the ASM Clermont-Auvergne club, it was built on a plot rent as part of an emphyteutic lease which belongs to Michelin tire firm.
In 1911, the tire manufacturer Michelin finances the construction of a rugby pitch on the initiative of its manager Marcel Michelin. This one takes its name from Stade Marcel-Michelin and hosts the Rugby union club AS Michelin’s games. This stadium is located in Clermont-Ferrand in the city centre on the “Avenue de la République”.
