IFFHS WORLD’S BEST WOMAN CLUB OF THE DECADE 2011-2020 : OLYMPIQUE LYON (FRANCE)
The IFFHS has devised an equitable method for determining THE WORLD’S BEST WOMAN CLUB OF THE DECADE 2011-2020. It was taken in consideration the TOP 20 of each yearly ranking of each category concerned and allocated points to each place. So the first placed received 20 points, the second placed 19 points, the third placed 18 points …. And 1 point for the twentieth place. If the annual ranking comprised fewer than 20, no point will be awarded for the unoccupied places .
Adding the points from the individual years provides a World Ranking for the Period 2011 – 2020 and a natural winner : Olympique Lyon.
Every club in the world has its own culture and method of operation, but few clubs come close to Olympique Lyonnais. President Jean-Michel Aulas introduced a one of a kind business model cleansing the club of its depts after taking over in 1987 and promoting the men team to the Ligue 1 just three years after. Since then, Lyon has become one of the model clubs in the world and perfected its successful business model applying it to Olympique Lyonnais Women after acquiring an already established FC Lyon in 2004. Result : 14 consecutive national league titles and 7 UEFA Champions League (5 consecutive from 2016 to 2020), all 7 in the decade 2011-2020 !
Les « Lyonnaises » have cemented their dominance over the world of women's football once again claiming the IFFHS World's Best Woman Club award for six years in a row. In fact, this is their seventh since 2012 with VFL Wolfsburg winning it in 2013 and 2014. Lyon has won fifteen IFFHS Awards since 2012, seven for the club, four for goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi , three for Playmaker Dzsenifer Marozsan and one for Team Coach Jean Luc Vasseur.
