Last year we celebrated 125 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

Football - "June game" vs Jouy-en-Josas, Sunday 25th June

Last Sunday, our adult football team played its traditional "June game" against Jouy-en-Josas, in Jouy-en-Josas. (Finally losing 4-2)

Harald Auss scored about 30 seconds after kick-off, which must be a SAC record!

Twenty minutes from the end the score was 2-2 (our second goal scored by Charles de Nanteuil); but then our opponents proved to be more resistant to the sun and to tiredness and scored twice to finally win 4-2.

Bravo to Yan de Catheu for captaining the team and to Joris Willey for his great goalkeeping.
