Montpellier Hérault Sport Club Féminines (French pronunciation: [mɔ̃pɛˈlyeɪ eɪˈroʊ]; commonly referred to as simply Montpellier) is a French women's football club based in Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone, a commune in the arrondissement of Montpellier. The club was founded in 1990. Montpellier play in the Division 1 Féminine having finished in 4th place in the 2009–10 season. The club is currently managed by Frédéric Mendy.

Montpellier hosts its home matches at the Stade Joseph-Blanc, a 1,000-capacity stadium that is situated in Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone. The club also hosts matches at the Stade de la Mosson in Montpellier, where the men's team plays.


The club was formed in 1990 under the name Montpellier-Le-Crès following the fusion of local clubs Racing Club de Paillade and Entente Cressoise. In 2001, the women's club became the women's section of the football club Montpellier HSC. Since joining Montpellier, the women's section has won the Division 1 Féminine twice in 2004 and 2005 and the Challenge de France three in 2006, 2007, and 2009 making the club one of the most successful women's football clubs in French football. Montpellier reached the semi-finals of the 2005–06 edition of the UEFA Women's Cup and, during the 2009–10 season, reached the quarter-finals of the inaugural edition of the UEFA Women's Champions League losing to Swedish club Umeå on the away goals rule.[1]

Montpellier has produced several well-known players that have played for the France women's national football team. Hoda Lattaf is a current member of the Montpellier first-team and was one of the leading players of the national team during her ten-year stint from 1997–2007. Lattaf finished her international career with 112 appearances and 31 goals. Current internationals and former players include Sonia Bompastor and Camille Abily who are both players abroad in the WPS in the United States. Internationals Louisa Necib, Élodie Thomis, and Laure Lepailleur all played for Montpellier before joining Olympique Lyonnais.
