OGC Nice has been a professional football club in France for over a century. The team is one of the pioneers of the pro football league in the country. They existed before the two World Wars and remained firm throughout history. The team has an incredible system and will continue to be a top team.

They’ve had a few mishaps throughout history, but we can see they’ve also impacted the league. Nice is a great club that we expect to keep pushing for more titles and a chance to represent the country in Europe. It is an exciting run for the team, and we look forward to how they fare this season.    

Nice General Info

Nice is one of the top football clubs based in Nice, France. And for many decades, the team has represented the city in the league and across Europe. The team’s full name is Olympique Gymnaste Club de Nice Cote d’Azur. They are also called OGC Nice, or they simply go by Nice. 

This team has two nicknames, Les Aiglons, The Eaglets, and Le Gym, which translates to The Gym. The club plays its football at the Allianz Riviera stadium, which has a capacity of 36,178. Ineos owns the team, and the current president is Jean-Pierre Rivere, with Lucien Favre as the head coach this season. 

Nice History

OGC Nice’s story started in 1904, and at the time, it was focused on gymnastics and athletics. Four years later, the club split, but by 1919, the two teams merged with a local football club, Gallia Football Athletic Club. Later, the team chose the red and black combination, which has remained its colors to date. 

The name Olympique Gymnaste Club de Nice was selected in 1924, and by 1930, the pro football league in France was created. And together with other clubs, Nice was part of the first members of the French Football League. However, they finished seventh in the first season and got relegated in the second. 

Eventually, the team worked its way back to the top division and impacted the league. The team’s first championship was the Ligue, which they won in the 1947-48 season. Their first major title came in the 1950-51 season when they won the Ligue 1 competition after returning to the top division a few seasons prior.

They’ve also created top-notch records in their history, from winning Ligue 1 trophies to being runners-up in the Latin Cup.
