En Avant Guingamp

Founded in 1912, Guingamp have achieved great things in French and European football, despite their limited resources and the diminutive size of the town they represent. Propelled by the ambitious Noël Le Graët, who presided over the club between 1972 and 1991, they enjoyed a meteoric rise up the French football pyramid to become a mainstay of the second tier in the 1980s and 90s.

During season 2013/2014, Guingamp reached the final of the Coupe de France, where they faced their Breton rivals, Rennes. A memorable 2-0 victory saw the outsiders lift the trophy for the second time in their history and qualify for the UEFA Europa League. A few months later, they managed to get out of a closely contested pool and reach the Round of 32, the furthest they have ever advanced on the continental stage.

After brief top-flight forays and a subsequent drop into the third division, Guingamp enjoyed a resurgence under Jocelyn Gourvennec, who took the helm between 2010 and 2016, and they returned to the Ligue 1 Conforama in just three seasons. After having coached Girondins de Bordeaux, he came back to Guingamp on november 2018, after that Antoine Kombouaré, former Paris Saint-Germain player and coach, left the club,

Stade de Roudourou

Located in the district bearing the same name, Stade de Roudourou has been Guingamp’s home ground since it was officially opened with a friendly match against Paris Saint-Germain – who had a certain Antoine Kombouaré on their books at the time – on 21 January 1990. On 10 October 2009, France even played a FIFA World Cup qualifier there, defeating the Faeroe Islands 5-0.
