My Paris

Stade Malherbe Caen

Stade Malherbe de Caen were founded in 1913 and are currently the only Normandy-based club in Ligue 1 Conforama. Coached by Fabien Mercadal, who was appointed in the close season, the club are now spending their fifth consecutive season in the French top flight.

That run includes a seventh place in the 2015/16 campaign, SM Caen’s highest-ever league finish.

In 2016 the Stade Malherbe board and the club’s former president Jean-François Fortin presented the Malherbe 2020 project, which involves the refurbishment of its home ground, an ambitious initiative that has been welcomed enthusiastically by the fans. The club’s directors have also their sights set on another top-10 finish this season.

SM Caen recently changed their logo, creating a new visual identity that highlights the club’s values. The Viking that sits at its centre symbolises the character of the people of Normandy and their history as conquerors.
