We'll soon be celebrating 130 years of football at the SAC. British engineers were working on erecting the Eiffel Tower for the great Exhibition in 1889/1890 and after work the young men would unwind with various sporting activities in the Bois de Boulogne, including football. Amongst these young Britons were the men who went on to found the Standard Athletic Club.

The Standard Athletic Club was to write a glorious chapter into its sporting history in 1894 when, against all odds, it won a momentous final to become the first ever football champions of France, the cup being on show now in our main trophy cabinet. It was later part of the 32 teams that created the Coupe de France in 1917.

Today when our brave footballers, seniors and juniors, turn out on cold winter weekends at Meudon playing in friendly games or in local leagues, it is only fair to remember that there was a time when the SAC’s name was a force to be reckoned with on a football field, its reputation extending beyond national boundaries.

Football at the SAC today

Training on Thursday evenings at Porte d'Asnières.

Matches on Sunday mornings.

All ages, fitness and skill levels welcome.
