Olympique de Médéa (French pronunciation: [ɔlɛ̃pik də medea]), (Arabic: أولمبي المدية), also known as l'OM Médéa (IPA: [lo.ɛm medea]) is an Algerian football club based in Médéa. The club was founded in 1945. The current home ground is Stade Imam Lyes de Médéa. The club has been a member of Ligue 2 since it became professional in 2010.
In 1996, the team had participated in the seventh Arab Cup Winners' Cup in Amman, Jordan. They were unfortunately eliminated in the semi-finals by the Moroccan team Olympique Khouribga despite a fine performance with the final score being 2–1. Olympique Khouribga eventually won the 1996 Arab Cup Winners' Cup beating Al-Faisaly in the final 3–1.
In 2010, the club was listed as a member of the newly professional Ligue Professionnelle 2, because the club had become professional. The club replaced OM Arzew due to them not taking the necessary steps in becoming a professional club.
