Biography[edit]

André Gascard was captain of the Olympique de Marseille team which reached the final of the Championnat de France USFSA against Le Havre AC (4-1) in 1919.[2] OM managed great performances at the national level, although the range of national competitions at the time diminishes their achievements somewhat.

He became coach of the Marseille club in 1939 and 1941. He later became chairman, and then head archivist for OM.

André Gascard was also the father of five children, including the artist Tibet.
