Montpellier Hérault SC

Founded in 1919 as Stade Olympique Montpelliérain, Montpellier Hérault Sport Club appeared in their current guise in 1989, under the stewardship of their flamboyant late president Louis Nicollin, who died in 2017. Nicollin had been in charge of the club since 1974, the year in which they merged with local outfit AS Paillade to become Montpellier Paillade Sport Club Littoral. A backwater club at the time, they rose to the French top flight within seven years. Within its history, Montpellier HSC have won the Coupe de France in 1929 and 1990, as wel as the French title in 2012, a stunning triumph in which they held off the challenge of Paris Saint-Germain in an exciting run-in.

The club’s first team coach is Michel Der Zakarian, who took on the job on 23 May 2017, following spells with FC Nantes, Clermont Foot 63, and Stade de Reims.
