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.

SAC Football News - SAC XI vs FIFFA, British School - home team falls short in high-scoring games

On the first two Sundays in March, SAC fought hard but came off second best in two fast-action, high-scoring games against FIFFA and the British School.
In the first game, SAC led 3-2 at half-time against the experienced FIFFA squad. Unfortunately, the visitors took advantage of some changes in defense and midfield and won 6-4.
Last Sunday, seeking to avenge a drubbing the previous time they played the British School, SAC had to overcome the absence of Rich Parkin in goal against typically well-organised opponents. The 7-2 final score flattered the visitors in an otherwise keenly contested game.
Next up is another rematch against Ludovic Cohen XI.
