My Paris

Olympique Gymnaste Club Nice

Founded in 1908, Nice are, alongside Monaco and Cannes, one of the French Riviera’s most prominent football clubs. However, contrary to their near neighbours Cannes, who have gradually spiralled down through the divisions, Nice are about to embark on their 17th consecutive season in the Ligue 1 Conforama. Run by Jean-Pierre Rivière since 2011, Les Aiglons (The Eaglets) recently appointed 1998 FIFA World Cup winner Patrick Vieira as their coach. It will be Vieira’s first coaching position in Europe, although the Frenchman has previously spent time in charge of New York City FC and Manchester City U-21s.
A model of consistency, Nice are about to kick off their 60th season in top-flight football, during which time they have landed four French League titles and have lifted the Coupe de France on three occasions. On the continental stage, the club has twice reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, in 1957 and 1960; both times, Real Madrid proved to be one hurdle too far. In addition, they got to the third round of the UEFA Cup, in December 1973, where they lost to Cologne.
One of the highlights of the year for Nice fans is the Côte d’Azur derby, where their heroes lock horns with Monaco; the team’s most recent success in the hotly contested fixture came on 9 September 2017, when they recorded a comprehensive 4-0 win at the Allianz Riviera.

Of the teams’ last 22 meetings, Paris Saint-Germain have won 13, but have lost six. They last duelled on the 30th matchday of the 2017/18 Ligue 1 Conforama season, at the Allianz Riviera, where the Parisians came out on top.

On matchday 8 of Ligue 1 Conforama, the Red and Blue defeated Nice 3-0 at Allianz Riviera, thanks to goals from Neymar Jr and Nkunku. The Parisians will be hosting the Aiglons at Parc des Princes on May 4th, 2019, for the 35th matchday.

Did you know?

Although their supporters – and fans of French football generally – are accustomed to watching Nice play in red and black, the team originally competed in black and blue. After arriving at a tournament organised by AC Milan in 1910, they realised they had left their jerseys back at Nice Airport. The Rossoneri kindly lent their visitors a set of their iconic red-and-black-striped tops; after winning the event, the powers-that-be at Nice decided to adopt those striking new colours as their own.

Player to watch

Allan Saint-Maximin
12/03/1997
Right wing

Born in Châtenay-Malabry in Paris Region, Allan Saint-Maximin signed professional terms with Saint-Etienne in 2013, when he was aged just 16. After moving to Monaco in the summer of 2015, he was loaned out to Hannover and then Bastia, before agreeing to a permanent transfer to Nice in 2017. On 14 September of that year, he scored his first goal for the club in a 5-1 UEFA Europa League victory over Belgian outfit Zulte Waregem. 

Pinpointed early on as one of the most talented players of his generation, Saint-Maximin has been capped for France at U-16, U-17 and U-20 level. An explosive, speedy and skilful winger, he provided eight assists and scored four times for his new employers last season. On 18 March 2018, he scored a superb breakaway goal against Paris Saint-Germain, showcasing his pace and clinical finishing to send the home fans into raptures.

Allianz Riviera

After having played at their traditional home of Stade Municipal du Ray from 1927 to 2013, Nice opened their brand-new ground, the Allianz Riviera, on 22 September 2013. Located in the Saint-Isodore district, the Allianz Riviera is a modern, multi-functional stadium that is also used for Top 14 professional rugby matches as well as high-profile concerts, such as the one featuring Jay-Z and Beyoncé in July 2018. Boasting a total capacity of 36,178 seats, the arena also staged UEFA EURO 2016 matches, including the Round-of-16 encounter between Iceland and England.

INFOS PRATIQUES

The club has put in tremendous efforts to ensure that access to the Allianz Riviera is as easy as possible, putting in place Ligne Foot (“football lines”) rail services from several neighbouring areas, and a shuttle service from nearby car parks. Bus services 9 and 10, as well as 95, which only operates on matchdays, also facilitate access for supporters. In addition, shuttles run from the Saint-Augustin regional train station to the stadium.
