Cédric Fauré (born February 14, 1979 in Toulouse) is a football striker from France. He currently plays for Belgian Second Division side Union SG.


Raised in the Haute-Garonne village Miremont, Fauré played amateur football and worked for a consumer electronics company before making his professional debut with Toulouse in 2002.[1] In his first season, he scored 20 goals (making him the Ligue 2 top scorer), and helped his club win the league and achieve promotion to Ligue 1.[2] The next season, despite not playing very often, he still managed to score 10 goals.

He is then transferred to Guingamp, where he hopes to get more playing time. Despite a good season (13 goals in 32 league games), he is transferred to FC Istres and, six months later, loaned to Le Mans where he stays Brazilian striker Grafite's substitute.

He is then purchased by Reims in the summer 2006.[3] He very quickly settles and his numerous goals make him a fans' favourite; however the club fails to achieve promotion to Ligue 1. In April 2008, he announces he will depart for Le Havre, recently promoted to Ligue 1. On December 19, 2008, Fauré returns to Reims. The club is relegated in May 2009 in National, third French division.

Fauré and Reims achieve however two promotions in three years. During the season 2009/10, he first finishes top scorer of National. Two years later, as well as with Toulouse, Cédric Fauré scored 15 goals, and finishes Ligue 2 top scorer. He helps the club from Champagne to achieve promotion to Ligue 1, for the first time since 1979.

Over the summer 2012, his contract expires. No agreement was found with the management of the club, and the player moved back to the club of Guingamp still in Ligue 2 at that time.

Again, Fauré participates, the following season, to the promotion of the Breton club to the Ligue 1, absent from that division since 2004. He scored that season 4 goals in 29 games. However, in the top-flight team, he was excluded from a regular first-team place and on 31 January 2014, moved to Belgian side Sporting Charleroi on a six-month deal.[4] In summer 2015, Fauré joined another Belgian side Union SG.[5]
