USJA Carquefou is a French football team currently playing in Championnat National based in Carquefou, Loire-Atlantique.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1942 as merger of two local clubs, Union Sportive de Carquefou and Jeanne d'Arc de Carquefou, the latter being a sports team whose football section was founded three years earlier.

During the 2007–2008 season, Carquefou had a very successful Coupe de France campaign, reaching the quarter-finals in the competition after having defeated Olympique Marseille in the round of 16 despite the club's amateur status. Carquefou continued successes and promoted to CFA after winning Group G of CFA 2 in 2008-2009 season. Carquefou finally won Group D of CFA and promoted to Championnat National once in 2011-12 season. Their biggest fan is Football Ramble co-host Pete Donaldson.
