The Greens have a long-standing rivalry with FC Nantes. As two of the most successful clubs in France, with a combined tally of 18 league titles between them, Saint-Etienne and Nantes are historical rivals vying fierce battles since 1932.
These two clubs dominated the French top-flight football during the ‘60s and ‘70s and matches between them were highly regarded as the most important dates in the football calendar. Saint-Etienne and Nantes were credited with creating the first two modern football academies – different in style and approach to the game.
Having further established two specific football identities, Saint-Etienne and Nantes deepened their rivalry, taking it to a whole new level. Nowadays, however, with a slight decline in the power of both clubs, matches between these two are not regarded as proper derbies. Nevertheless, they still generate plenty of attention and interest from both sets of supporters.
Apart from Nantes, Saint-Etienne also consider Olympique Lyonnais as one of their main rivals. These two clubs contest the Derby Rhone-Alpes, a local derby match which also attracts plenty of attention in the French football community.
Founded by employees of the locally-based grocery store chain called Groupe Casino a century ago, Saint-Etienne were initially referred to as Amicale des Employes de la Societe des Magasins Casino (ASC). The club dropped the word ‘casino’ in 1920, under the prohibition of trademark use by the French Football Federation (FFF).
Saint-Etienne have ten Ligue 1 titles under their belt, whereas they also won three Ligue 2 trophies, the most recent of which came in 2003/04. The Greens also won six Coupe de France medals. Their traditional colour is green. They play their home matches at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard which is also known as The Green Hell.
