Club Sportif Avionnais was founded in 1922. The club's great success came early in their existence. During the 1950s, as an amateur club, they reached the Coupe de France Round of 64 and Round of 32 on several occasions. In league play, the club has only made it as far as the Championnat de France Amateurs, their last appearance being during the 2004-05 season, in which they were relegated after four consecutive seasons there. Following their quick relegation from CFA 2, they were relocated to the Division d'Honneur de Nord-Pas-de-Calais. After two seasons there, they achieved promotion back to CFA 2 for the 2008-09 season.
They had a remarkable run during the 2007-08 Coupe de France, where they made it all the way to the Round of 64 before being eliminated by Ligue 1 club and lesser rivals Lille OSC. The club also operates a successful youth team, which is usually composed of young players that have been rejected or released from bigger Nord-Pas-de-Calais clubs, such as RC Lens and Lille. They appear often in the Coupe Gambardella reaching as far as the quarterfinals during the 2005-06 season.
