History[edit]

UJA Alfortville[edit]

UJA Alfortville was formed in 1926 under the name Union de la Jeunesse Arménienne d'Alfortville (known simply as Alfortville).

Over the course of a decade, Alfortville has quickly ascended up the French football league system. In 1998, the club was promoted from Promotion d'Honneur. In the following season, Alfortville earned promotion to the Division d'Honneur Régionale and proceeded to advance to the Division Supérieure Régionale two seasons later in 2000. The club remained in the seventh division for six years before achieving promotion to the Division d'Honneur of the Île-de-France region. After one season, Alfortville ascended to the 5th level of the system, CFA 2.[1] The club won its group in the first season, thus earning promotion to the Championnat de France amateur for the 2008–09 season.[2]

After two seasons in the CFA, Alfortville were administratively promoted to the Championnat National due to the demotion through financial issues of RC Strasbourg Alsace.[3] The club was relegated at the end of the season.

UJA Maccabi Paris Métropole[edit]

In June 2012, UJA Alfortville completed the merger with Maccabi Paris, a club from the Division Supérieure Régional.[4] The new club was relegated to the CFA 2 in its first season, and has maintained that level since.
