History[edit]

Football Club Villefranche-Beaujolais was formed in 1927. The club is notable for their successes achieved in the 1980s and early 1990s before falling into the lower divisions where they currently[when?] reside. For the 2007–2008 season, club president Jean Gachon stepped down from the position. Gachon was instrumental in helping Villefranche get to the Championnat National in the 1990s.[citation needed] He was succeeded by Christian Du Verne and Fabien Raty, who got the club to the Championnat de France Amateurs. The current[when?] president is Philippe Terrier.
