History[edit]

The club was founded in February 1921. It has played entirely at the amateur level, except for one season in 2nd Division in 1970–71. In the 1980s the club declined invitation to turn professional and join the 2nd Division, then chairman Emile Stahl stating that to take the promotion would be "a suicidal adventure which would lead the club to its death."[1]

The club has won the Division d'Honneur, Alsace 8 times (1964, 1965, 1977, 1989, 1993, 1994, 1998 and 2015) and the third level of the French football league system 4 times (1969, 1970, 1981 and 1982)

The club has reached the 1/8th final of the Coupe de France twice (1964 and 1977)[2]
