Union Sportive de Biskra, (Arabic: الإتحاد الرياضي لبسكرة), known as US Biskra or simply USB for short, is an Algerian football club based in Biskra. The club was founded in 1934 and the club colours are green and black. Their home stadium, Complexe Sportif d'El Alia, has a capacity of 15,000 spectators. The club is currently playing in the Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1.
Some of its famous players of the 1970s and early-1980s include: Majorie, Chaib Lakhal, Mohamed Jonas, Mirini, Bessaou, Bouzidi, Ben Brahim, and of course Doubba.
L'USB was stock in the third division for most of its history and played major roles but never made it up. The third division used to be called "Division d'Honneur". At that time the most important achievement was defeating the then, and even now, mighty ES Setif 2–1 in Algerian cup. That was a short lived happy time followed by a loss to USM Bel-Abbès in the same competition by 4–1. All the citizens of Biskra still remember the year of Azzaba when l'US Biskra lost at home in one of the final games to Azzaba 3–1 and therefore missing the accession to the second division then known as "Division Regional".
L'US Biskra now is in second division and even played in Division one for one season two years ago. In may 2017, US Biskra returned to the Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1 after 11 years of absence.
