Lille OSC

LOSC Lille (commonly referred to as Le LOSC, Lille OSC or simply Lille) is a French association football club based in Lille.

Lille has played its home matches since 2012 at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in nearby Villeneuve d’Ascq, which replaced the club’s previous home of Stade Lille-Metropole in the same community.

Lille was founded as a result of a merger between Olympique Lillois and SC Fives. Both clubs were founding members of the French Division 1 and Lillois was the league’s inaugural champions. Lille and Red Star FC are the only French clubs in the competition’s history to win the Coupe de France in three consecutive seasons. Lille’s most successful period was the decade from 1946 to 1956 when the team was led by managers George Berry and André Cheuva.
