LOSC Lille Association

Lille Olympique Sporting Club, or LOSC, was established on 23 September 1944 following a merger between two Lille-based football clubs, Sporting Club Fivois and Olympique Lillois, the latter side having claimed the first-ever French League title in 1933. Subsequently, the club would enjoy two successful periods in distinct eras: the first came in the aftermath of World War II, when they secured two league titles and won the Coupe de France five times between 1946 and 1955. In the years that followed, Les Dogues, beset by financial problems, went through difficult times, suffering relegation to the second division on several occasions and even losing their professional status in 1969. In 1999, the club was privatised and began experiencing success once more, starting with a Ligue 2 Championship in 2000.

Since that promotion, Lille have been a mainstay of the Ligue 1 Conforama, winning a league-and-cup double in season 2010/11 and qualifying regularly for the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

In 2017, Christophe Galtier took charge of team affairs, while entrepreneur Gérard Lopez became the club’s majority owner.

Player to watch

Nicolas Pépé

Côte d'Ivoire international attacker Nicolas Pépé, 23, made his professional debut for Angers in the Ligue 2 Dominos in 2014, after having impressed in the club’s reserves. In 2015/2016, he was loaned out to Orléans in order to gain playing time and experience, and he fully grasped the opportunity, winning the third division’s Player of the Year award. Upon returning to Angers, he made his first appearance in the Ligue 1 Conforama.
On 21 June 2017, Pépé signed a five-year contract with Lille, and despite their enduring a tough start to the season, he quickly developed into one of the team’s key performers, scoring 13 goals and providing six assists, a haul that saw him named Player of the Year by the fans.
