Nice’s main rival in French football is AS Monaco. The two clubs contest what’s universally referred to as the Derby de la Cote d’Azur. The name is derived from the fact both clubs are located on the French Riviera.
As two cities separated by 20 kilometres, Nice and Monaco developed a geographical rivalry which has been fuelled during the early 200s when both clubs enjoyed successful years in the top flight. The rivalry between these two clubs is fiercely supported and would often result in off-field drama and violence.
OGC Nice is one of the founding clubs of the French football’s first division. The club itself was founded in 1904 under the name of Gymnaste Club de Nice. Later on in 1924, the club adopted the new name and changed it into Olympique Gymnaste Club de Nice.
Nice went back and forth between the first two divisions of the French football for most of its existence. The club won the total of four Ligue 1 titles, last of which came during the 1958/59 season. Coincidently, the club boasts the same number of Ligue 2 trophies.
As three-time Coupe de France winners, OGC Nice got back to prominence in 2016 when a Chinese-American consortium purchased 80% of the club. Heavy investments resulted in Nice finishing the 2016/17 season in third place and got in the Champions League. However, the consortium sold the club in 2019 and Nice are once again in a transition period which may bring certain instabilities and affect the results in the new season.
