Cercle Athlétique Bastiais or CA Bastia was a French football team founded in 1920. They were based in Bastia, Corsica, and played at their highest point in Ligue 2, the second tier of the French football league system.[1]

Their historic home stadium was the Stade d'Erbajolo in Bastia, although they played their Ligue 2 home games in Armand-Césari, home stadium of Bastia's other professional team, SC Bastia.[2]

In 2017, after suffering relegation from 2016–17 Championnat National, they merged with Borgo FC to form FC Bastia-Borgo.[3]
