The Girondins, as Bordeaux are commonly known, have one major rival in Ligue 1. Contested between the two major clubs from cities located along the Garonne River, the Derby de la Garonne is a highly-anticipated local derby with Toulouse.
The Garonne Derby grew in competitiveness at the turn of the century (in 2003) when Toulouse got back to the top tier of French football following administrative relegation to the third division -Champoionnat National. With only 150 miles between the two cities, rivalry between Bordeaux and Toulouse was first ignited in 1946.
Initially founded as a multi-sport club which was a customary practice in France, Bordeaux went through a lengthy period from 1881 to 1920 without having football under its umbrella. The first unsuccessful experiment with football had happened in 1910 but it was not until a decade later that this sport was added to the mix.
The Girondins achieved professional status in 1936 and have since then grown into one of the most successful football clubs in France. Bordeaux are a six-time national champions and proud owners of four Coupe de France medals. Moreover, they won three Coupe de la Ligue titles and even played in the UEFA Cup final in 1996. The only international trophy they have won to this date remains the 1995 UEFA Intertoto Cup title. Bordeaux play their home matches at the Matmut Atlantique stadium, better known as the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux, build ahead of the UEFA Euro 2016. The modern-looking sports venue seats over 42,000 people. In addition to football, the stadium also hosts a series of other events, including concerts.
