FC Girondins de Bordeaux is a French football team, playing in the city of Bordeaux. Outside of France it is more commonly referred to as just Bordeaux.

The club was founded in 1881 as an omnisport club. The Girondins won the French league in 1950, 1984, 1985, 1987, and 1999. The club plays the home-matches in the Stade Chaban Delmas, named after the former mayor of Bordeaux, Jacques Chaban-Delmas. Parc Lescure was the previous name of the stadium. The club has often qualified for European football.

Their biggest European triumph was reaching the UEFA Cup final in 1996. After qualifying for the Intertoto Cup, the Girondins won that competition to get a place in the UEFA Cup. They reached the final after victories over Vardar Skopje, Rotor Volgograd, Real Betis, a heroic quarter final win over AC Milan, and a semi-final win over Slavia Prague. In the UEFA Cup final, Bayern Munich prevented the Bordelais winning their first European Cup after a 5-1 defeat on aggregate.

Former Bordeaux midfielder Michel Pavon became head coach in October 24, 2003. Because of health problems, he stood back and continued his career as scout on June 2005. Brazilian Ricardo became the new coach, until Laurent Blanc took over in 2007.

The club has been an entire subsidiary company of the French television group M6 since 2001.

Historical overview

An all-round sports club was created as Girondins de Bordeaux on February 1, 1882 or October 1, 1881, depending on sources. It was not until 1910, when put under pressure by Raymond Brard that football became the over-riding sport. The first official Premier match took place in 1919.

Le Girondins became professional in 1937. This was after clubs Sporting Club de la Bastidenne and Club Deportivo Espagnol de Bordeaux had come and gone, as well as their offspring, FC Hispano-Bastidenne. They decided to rest two seasons before becoming professional.

Bordeaux captured their first Coupe de France in 1941 farther beating SC Fives 2-0. It would be 45 years before they would reclaim the title, after six failed attempts.

In 1949/50 Bordeaux became champions of Ligue 1 just a year after being champions of Ligue 2, with André Gérard one of the main people in their quest for the title. Bordeaux's defence became known as the "impenetrable fortress". Of these, three names were most significant, the names of De Harder, Kargu and Libar.

Time went on and Bordeaux declined in form until 1979-80 when, after thirteen weeks they sacked their manager and within nine months brought in Raymond Goethals, successful with Anderlecht with his own renowned tactics. However he lasted no longer than a single calendar year and later they brought in Aimé Jacquet.

During the eighties, Bordeaux won three Ligues, two Coupes de France, and qualified several consecutive years for European competition. A comparative slide over the next ten years followed, until in the early nineties Bordeaux were relegated to the second division for financial reasons. The rebirth, however, was immediate after some flowing football not only secured immediate promotion back to Ligue 1, but meant that not so many years later, Bordeaux were constantly frequenting Europe. This remains so to this day, with their prowess bringing them titles including a 1996 UEFA Cup final.
