Dijon Football Côte-d'Or

Founded in 1998 following a merger between Dijon Football Club and Cercle Football Dijonnais, Dijon FCO has been run by Olivier Delcourt since 2012.
In 2002, following his stint at Saint-Etienne, Rudy Garcia took up the reins of the team, which subsequently switched from amateur to professional status in the space of two years. Season 2003/2004 was an exceptional one for Dijon, who earned promotion to Ligue 2 after finishing third behind Reims and Brest, and reached the semi-finals of the Coupe de France after eliminating Lens, Saint-Etienne and Amiens.
In 2015-16, DFCO enjoyed their most successful Ligue 2 season ever. Boasting the division’s best attack and losing just six times, they finished second in the table and were promoted to the Ligue 1 Conforama.
While Dijon have retained their top-flight status for two consecutive campaigns, they have only spent four seasons at this level in total, making them the second least experienced club after Amiens.
At the end of a complicated 2018-19 season, DFCO have succeeded in maintaining in Ligue 1 Conforama, after a two-games playoff victory against RC Lens.
On June 20th, 2019, le club appointed Stéphane Jobard, former assistant of Ollivier Dall'Oglio and Rudi Garcia's member of staff last season, as new coach, consecutive to a press conference.
