Thonon Evian FC

You may have previously known this club as Évian Thonon Gaillard FC. The club's nicknames include Les Croix de Savoie, Les Roses or simply the abbreviation Evian. The nicknames suggest that their club colour is pink, which is combined with white on their jerseys. Although these colours no longer appear in their crest, here again we find the Savoy Cross. The club operates out of the Parc des Sports stadium, which has a capacity of 15 660 seats.

The club moved to this stadium from the former Stade Joseph-Moynat, which was no longer up to professional football league standards. Originally, the move was made with a temporary purpose, either prior to the construction of a new stadium or the renovation of the original Stade Joseph-Moynat.

From amateurs to professionals

The club was only founded in 2007 in the town of Thonon-les-Bains, then as Olympique Croix-de-Savoie 74. However, its predecessor was the aforementioned Gaillard FC, which existed from 1924 to 2003 and played in regional competitions for most of its existence.

Evian, on the other hand, made its mark in professional football, reaching the professional division after only three seasons. The road to this was through winning the French Amateur Championship in 2008, followed by winning the national championship in 2010 and finally finishing first in Ligue 2 in the 2010/11 season. That's also when the club managed to knock out the former reigning French champions, Olympique Marseille, 3-1 in the French Cup.

Rise and fall

In its first season in Ligue 1, the club finished a respectable 9th place. A season later, however, they finished 16th and avoided relegation by just 2 points. For the first time in the club's history, however, they reached the final of the French Cup, where they were beaten 2-3 by Bordeaux.

However, a steep drop down came. Then, at the end of the 2015/16 season, the club was also eliminated from Ligue 2 and further relegated to the amateur 4th division. Eventually the club entered emergency administration, and even if it had survived, it would have meant another administrative relegation. The club withdrew from the competition on 9 August.
