They are nicknamed Les Monégasques or Les Rouges et Blancs (the red and white). It's not hard to guess that the club colours are red and white, which is represented both on the home jersey and in the emblem. They play at the Stade Louis II, which has a capacity of 18,523 seats. Since 2011, the owner is Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, who lives in Monaco.
The founding of the club dates back to 1924 and was the unification of six clubs in Monaco. Like most other French clubs, Monaco started out in the amateur league, but unlike many others, the club did not stay with this status for long and became a professional football club in 1933. And perhaps that is why it became one of the most successful clubs in the French league, at least it created the conditions for it.
Still, the beginnings were not at all easy, because although the club started in the second highest competition, now Ligue 2, it fell back to the amateurs. However, it fought its way back to Ligue 2 in 1948 and finally to the top competition, now Ligue 1, in 1953.
The first tangible success came from coach Lucien Leduc, who won his first league trophy with the club in 1960 and another in 1963. After his departure in the same year, however, the club staggered between the first and second league competitions. Change came with the new management in 1975. More success came and the club won further titles in 1978 and 1982. The 1990s were also successful for the club, winning another pair of titles at that time. The club won its last league title to date in the 2016/17 season and a year later was second in the league table. This makes a total of 8 times league champions.
In addition, it has also won in cups. It has won the French Cup 5 times, most recently in the 1990/91 season. They reached the French Cup in the 2002/03 season and was in the final in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons. On a European scale, for example, Monaco has one UEFA Champions League final appearance from the 2003/04 season, but the win hasn't come yet.
