History[edit]

There is documented evidence of cricket games played in France as early as 1864. By the end of the 19th century, there were about 12 club teams in France. France participated in the only Olympic Games in Paris in 1900, the only Olympics that has included cricket, and won the silver medal (although many of the players on the French team were English expatriates).[1]
