Le Racing are a club without prominent rivalries in the top-flight. They have been going in and out of Ligue 1 for most of their existence and are not considered a top club in France. Therefore, none of the major French sides such as PSG, Lyon or Lille consider them rivals.
The Derby de l’Est between FC Metz and RC Strasbourg is the only Ligue 1 rivalry Le Racing are part of. Both clubs are situated in eastern France and hence the geographical connection in terms of football. Matches between Metz and Strasbourg generate plenty of attention, locally, but are far off from being of the same stature as other most prominent rivalries.
Moreover, when it comes to more local animosities, Vauban Strasbourg could be considered a rival. Matches with the Championnat National 3 do not occur that often and have no emotional importance for RC Strasbourg fans.
Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace was founded in 1906. Despite its long history, Strasbourg never quite managed to establish itself as one of France’s leading football clubs. Interestingly enough, despite being one six French clubs to have won all three major trophies in the country – league title, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue – Strasbourg would get relegated once every ten years since the 1950s.
Historically speaking, the club has had a troublesome history. It changed nationality three times – much like the region of Alsace – and even went through total liquidation, in 2011. The FFF decided to reinstate the club into the fifth division of French football and Strasbourg’s rise back to prominence began. Today, RC Strasbourg are in search of stability and will be determined to put the problematic past behind them.
