Amiens Sporting Club (French pronunciation: ​[amjɛ̃]; commonly referred to as Amiens SC or simply Amiens) is a French association football club based in Amiens. The club was formed in 1901 and currently play in the Championnat National, the third level of French football. The club plays its home matches at the Stade de la Licorne located within the city. Amiens is managed by Olivier Echouafni and captained by defender Stéphane Mangione.


Amiens Athlétic Club (AAC) was set up in 1901 by a group of players from the Association du Lycée d'Amiens, French schoolboy champions in 1902, 1903, and 1904. AAC crushed its very first opponents, Saint-Quentin, 13–0 a few months after its creation. In April 1902, the Comité de Picardie de l'U.S.F.S.A was established by the then-president of the AAC (Henri-Frédéric Petit). AAC dominated the early USFSA league for the first 12 seasons. In 1909, the club got a new ground, at the Henry Daussy Park, allowing an attendance of more than 1,000. In 1933, the club got its first professional section, later abandoned in 1952, before becoming professional again in 1993. Since the early days, AAC has undergone two name changes: In 1961, to Sporting Club d'Amiens, and in 1989, as Amiens Sporting Club. Amiens played in Ligue 2 between 2001-2009.
