My Paris

Racing Club Strasbourg Alsace

Founded in 1906 as FC Neudorf, Racing Club Strasbourg Alsace played their first competitive matches in the German league in 1909 and won their first trophy in 1952: the Coupe de France. Their glory years came in the 1970s, when they won their sole French league title, in 1979, and went on to reach the quarter-finals of the European Cup the following season, before losing to an Ajax Amsterdam side featuring a young Frank Rijkaard.

Relegated on several occasions in the 2000s, Racing found themselves in the CFA2 (the fifth tier of French football at the time) in the 2011/12 season. Climbing their way back up through the leagues in the years that followed, they made their return to Ligue 1 Conforama in 2016/17.

The club ended the 2017/18 campaign in 15th place, ensuring their survival late in the season. In addition to that one league championship triumph, Racing have won three Ligue 2 titles, three Coupes de France and two Coupes de la Ligue.
