My Paris

Football Club Nantes

Football Club de Nantes were founded in 1943 with the merger of five different clubs. Since August 2007, FC Nantes have been presided over by Waldemar Kita, who won France Football’s Club Chairman of the Year award in 2014, a year that saw the club contest their 50th season in the French top flight. Their honours to date include eight French league titles, three Coupes de France and a Coupe de la Ligue, while Les Canaries have played over 100 matches in European club competitions.

One of France’s best-known clubs, FC Nantes are also famed for their La Jonelière youth academy, which has produced a number of France internationals and World Cup winners, among them Didier Deschamps, Marcel Desailly, and Christian Karembeu.

On October 2nd, 2018, and after a complicated start in Ligue 1 Conforama, the club appointed Vahid Halilhodzic as head coach, former coach of Paris Saint-Germain from 2003 to 2005.

The club and the City and Nantes are currently working together on the construction of a new stadium. This ambitious sporting, urban and environmental project goes by the name of Yellow Park and involves the construction of a 40,000-seater stadium that will host matches at the 2023 Rugby World Cup and the Olympic Games Paris 2024, as well as a park and nearly 1,500 houses.

Player to watch

Valentin Rongier
07/12/1994
Midfielder

Born on 7 December 1994 in Mâcon, Valentin Rongier is a product of the FC Nantes youth system. Having spent his entire youth career at La Jonelière, he made the move up to the first team in summer 2014. Though he picked up a serious knee injury in October 2015, a year before his contract was due to expire, the club saw fit to offer him an extension through to 2020, a sign of the faith that the board have in the homegrown Rongier. A tireless defensive midfielder, he won more tackles than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues in the 2016/17 season.
