Founded back in 1881, Football Club des Girondins de Bordeaux is one of the oldest and most successful football clubs in France. From the popular wine-producing region of western France, Bordeaux has won six Ligue 1 titles and seven cups in the domestic game. Two European cup semi-final appearances in the late 1980s and a run to the UEFA Cup final in 1994 featuring a young Zinedine Zidane were some of the recent continental highlights for the club.
At the turn of the century, Les Girondins captured the fifth Ligue 1 title with a final-day victory over Marseille. A decade later, another last gasp finish saw Bordeaux claim their sixth and most recent title under manager Laurent Blanc.
In the following years, the club made a big move to the Matmut Atlantique, a brand-new stadium built for Euro 2016 which seats over 42,000 fans. Zinedine Zidane was the first to kick-off the inaugural match there against Montpellier in the last game of the 2014-2015 season.
With their inverted chevrons in navy blue and white across their jerseys symbolising local pride, Bordeaux continue to be one of the more consistent sides in Ligue 1. Compare the best ticket prices to join them at the new Matmut Atlantique stadium today.
