Paris vs Paris FC

Paris FC in brief

The women's section of Paris Football Club was founded in 1971, two years after the creation of the Parisian club. The team entered Division 1 Arkema for the first time in its history in 1980, after a long battle at the regional level.

On March 26th, 2017, President Pierre Ferracci made official the merger with FCF Juvisy-Essonne, which was then absorbed by Paris Football Club.

The flagship club of the 1990s and 2000s, Paris Football Club won the French Championship title six times, as well as the French Cup in 2005. The best performance of the Ile-de-France women in the Champions League to date remains a semi-final in 2013, eliminated by Olympique Lyonnais of Eugénie Le Sommer.

At the end of the 2019-20 season of D1 Arkema, Paris FC finished 5th in the ranking, behind Montpellier and Bordeaux.
