Union Sportive Bressane is a general sports club based in the town of Bourg-en-Bresse, France. The club has competed the past few years in France's third division and top amateur league, Fédérale 1. During the 2007–08 season, they managed to reach the final of the Jean-Prat championship and faced a surging US Colomiers side. US Bressane was easily defeated 36-3, but thanks to reaching the final this still earned the club automatic promotion to the second division of France, Rugby Pro D2 for 2008-09.
