Stade Malien is a Malian football and sports club based in Bamako. One of the two dominant clubs of Malian football, their eastern Bamako training grounds host other sports as well, including a successful basketball club.

Football club

Stade Malien de Bamako was founded in 1960 as a result of a fusion between "Jeanne d'Arc" and "Espérance de Bamako". Second only to Djoliba Athletic Club of Bamako in success, Stade Malian are their primary rivals. Stade plays its matches in the Stade 26 mars in the city centre, but is based in the eastern industrial outskirts of the city in the Sotuba neighborhood. In 2006, it build a large training facility there, where a full stadium is being constructed.

The U-17 in particular has been successful internationally, having competed in the Under 17 Club Championships in Spain in 2007.

hield and colors

The emblem of the club is based on the city seal of Bamako, featuring three crocodiles. The team plays in white (from which it earns the nickname "les Blancs") and blue.


Stade Malien has inherited much of the history of "Jeanne d'Arc du Soudan", founded in 1938 by two French-Africans and the missionary Révérend Père Bouvier. The name was borrowed from Jeanne d'Arc Dakar, and the white uniforms from the White Fathers, which Stade retain. JA du Soudan was one of the most successful clubs of the pre-independence period, winning the AOF Cup in 1953 and 1956 and reaching the finals in 1951 and 1959 (the last played). They reached the "coupe du Soudan" finals 6 times, winning four years (1950, 51, 52, 55) and losing 2 (1947, 48). Among their bigest rivals was "Africa Sport" of Bamako, who became Djoliba AC in 1960. JA's most famous players were Mamadou "Coulou" Coulibaly, Seydou Ndaw, Seydou Thiam, Cheick Oumar Diallo, Bacoroba "Baco" Touré, and Oumar Sy.

"Espérance de Bamako" was founded in 1958 as a student youth club, overseen by Fernand Diarra and captained by the young Bakary Samaké.

At independence, the two Bamako clubs fused, to become Stade Malian de Bamako in 1960. In the first Coupe du Mali, Stade and Djoliba reached the two match final in 1961. Tied 3-3 after the first match, Stade carried the cup 2-1 in the second.

Stade reached the first final of the African Cup of Champions Clubs in 1964/5. On 30 February 1965, Stade lost 2-1 to Oryx Douala played at Kumassi Ghana, but is remembered for the great play of star defender Souleymane "Solo" Coulibaly. Other famous early players for the Blancs were Yacouba Samabaly, Bakary Samaké, Sama Bass and Coach Oumar Sy. The great Salif Keita briefly appeared for the club.

During the 1968-1991 military dictatorship of Moussa Traoré, many fans of Stade Malien felt that the government unfairly favored Djoliba AC. Heroes of this era include Mamadou Kéita "Capi", [] Issa Yatassaye, Osumane Farota, Drissa Coulibaly, Abdoulaye Kaloga, Moussa "Gigla" Traoré. [History section is based on [ LE STADE MALIEN DE BAMAKO (n.d.)] : club history, in French, taken from the official site.]

Stade's fortunes have been mixed since then, but are always near the top of the Malian league. The highpoints of the 1990s were their 1992 winning of the "Eyadéma Cup" in the UFOA Championship and their 1993-1995 three-in-a-row league championships.

Recent players of note have included Modibo Maïga, Boucader Diallo, Mohamed Djila, Bassala Toure, Djélimory Kané, Rafan Sidibé, Mohammed Muyei, and coach Karim Abdul Razak. Recent players capped to the Mali national football team include Lassine Diarra, Dramane Traoré (1999), Adama Diakite, Harouna Diarra, Boucader Diallo, and Soumbeyla Diakité.

Jeanne D'Arc FC

At the end of the 2006/07 season, a group of Stade supporters broke away to form their own football club, taking the "Jeanne D'Arc" name with them. They formed Jeanne D'Arc FC Bamako, which competed in lower division football. In September 2008, Jeanne D'Arc became champions of the Groupe B league soccer tournament, one of two regional tournaments which promotes teams to the Malien Première Division, and will complete against their former counterparts during the 2008/09 season.

Malien Première Division 2007/08

Reigning champions from the 2007 Malien Première Division, Stade and rivals Djoliba sat atop the standings the entire season, with Djoliba leading in the run up to the final games. Their July 7th derby match was postponed to August, and although they beat their rivals, Stade finished the season 9 points behind champions Djoliba. The only other meeting between the two rivals in the season was in the Semi-Finals of the Malien Cup, where Stade faced the humiliation of a 5-0 drubbing by Djoliba. Stade were eliminated from the CAF Champions League 2008 by Clube Desportivo Primeiro de Agosto of Angola in the early stages. In the league, their biggest win was a 5-0 defeat of USFAS Bamako on 14 July at home, with scorers Lassana Diallo, Karim Sogoba, Lassine Diarra, and Bakary Coulibaly scoring two.

] In June, eight points behind the leaders, Stade replaced manager Cheick Diallo with Cheick Oumar Koné from Malian Army club Scorpions de Bamako. [ [ Stade Malien : le nouveau challenge de Cheick Oumar Koné] , L'Essor, 26/06/2008] Despite winning eight of their nine last matches (they lost 1-0 away to JS Centre Salif Kéita on 14 August), Djoliba handily took the cup and league double. While other reasons were given, the removal of the Club Director Mahamadou Samaké at the beginning of September, after over a decade at the helm, was reported in the press as a result of this disapointing season. [ [ Stade malien de Bamako : Le président Mamadou Samaké démissionne posant la problématique de son successeur] , L'indicateur Renouveau, 27/08/2008. ]

Earlier in the season, the club brought in two Burkinabé players, Goalkeeper Rachid Abdoulaye Compaoré (to supplement national squad keeper Soumaila Diakité who was suspended from CAF play) and Striker Moctar Ouédraogo (who has become a starter). They said goodbye to Defender Amadou "Docteur" Diallo and longtime Central Defender and Captain Boucader Diallo. [ [ Le Stade malien en Ligue des Champions avec une légion burkinabé] ]

2008/9 Season

Stade Malien will compete in Malien Première Division 2008/09, beginning in December 2008.


The club is a membership organisation, supported by subscription, with elected leadership. The organisation is advised by a General Assembly (L’assemblée générale du Stade malien) and run by an Executive Committee ("Le comité exécutif du Stade malien de Bamako") chosen by the Assembly. As the Assembly meets every few years, the business and supporters committees (comité de gestion and comité des supporters) elect directors (the supporters "central bureau" elect a president - Mamadou Diané in 2005) who, in the Assembly, choose an Executive Board. The President of the Executive Board runs the club. The system is not without controversy, primarily over funds and choice of players.

From 2000 to 25 August 2008 Stade Malien's President was Bamako businessman Mahamadou Samaké (known as "SAM"). Stepping down nominally to accept a promotion in his business work, it is rumored his resignation had more to do with more than a season of disappointing on field results.
