Strasbourg History

A group of youngsters came together in 1906 to form a football club in the Neudorf neighborhood. It was in the old Straßburg, Elsaß-Lothringen city in the old German Empire. It is now Strasbourg, Alsace, France. They had the help of their primary school teacher, and in the end, the club was called Erster Fußball Club Neudorf.

They remained a local amateur club for a while. After the first World War, when the territory was returned to France, the club adopted the name Racing-Club Strasbourg-Neudorf before eventually becoming Racing Club de Strasbourg. However, the club remained at the amateur level until 1933. 

In 1933, they became a professional football team competing in the top-flight leagues. RCS began its pro journey in the Ligue 1 and spent a few seasons there. Eventually, they found their feet, and despite enduring the second world war, they remained a solid team that kept pushing throughout history.
