Toulouse Football Club

Founded in 1970, Toulouse Football Club play their home matches at the Stadium de Toulouse. Les Violets reached Ligue 1 in 1982 and finished in the top five in their first three seasons in the top flight. Their fortunes then dipped in the 1990s, when they suffered three relegations before eventually dropping into the National (France’s third tier) in 2001.
It was in that year that Olivier Sadran took over as club president, one of the youngest in their history. Having made his fortune in airline catering, he guided Toulouse back to Ligue 1 Conforama in 2003, and they have remained there ever since.
The 2015/16 league campaign will long be remembered by Toulouse fans. One place off the bottom with ten games remaining and fully ten points from safety, a Violets side coached by Pascal Dupraz, who had been given the brief of saving them from relegation, ensured their top-flight survival on the very last day of the season.
Les Toulousains finished 17th that year, a performance they equalled last season, which left them facing a relegation/promotion play-off with Ligue 2 Dominos side AC Ajaccio. Toulouse held their nerve over the two-legged tie to win 4-0 aggregate and stay in the top tier for another year.
Toulouse’s biggest rivals are FC Girondins de Bordeaux, their opponents in the Garonne derby. Les Violets have failed to finish above Bordeaux in Ligue 1 Conforama since 2007/08.
After Anoitne Kombouaré's departure, the TFC decided to appoint Denis Zanko as coach.

Did you know?

When Toulouse travelled to Bordeaux for a Garonne derby meeting on 12 December 1992 they took on a Girondins side coached by Roland Courbis and containing the likes of Zinédine Zidane, Bixente Lizarazu, and Christophe Dugarry.
Lizarazu it was who scored the only goal of the game from a hotly disputed indirect free-kick four minutes from time, a decision so controversial that Toulouse lodged an appeal afterwards. The appeal was upheld, the goal disallowed and a replay ordered. Sadly for Toulouse, they went down 2-0 in the second meeting, a result they could have no cause for complaint about.

Player to watch

Max-Alain Gradel

Having played for a number of clubs on the other side of the English Channel, Max-Alain Gradel made the move to Ligue 1 Conforama in 2011, joining AS Saint Etienne. A skilful, pacy and selfless forward, Gradel became a key member of the Verts line-up before moving to newly promoted English Premier League side Bournemouth in 2015. Suffering a serious knee injury only one month after his return to England, Gradel endured a luckless stay with the south-coast club.

Loaned out to Toulouse in 2017, the Ivory Coast international regained his confidence under Pascal Dupraz, ending the 2017/18 campaign as the club’s highest scorer. Experienced and talented with it, Gradel has just signed a three-year deal with Les Toulousains.
