El Olympique Gymnaste Club de Nice abbreviated as OGC Nice or also known by the Spanish-speaking community as OGC Nice, is a French football club, from the city of Nice in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. It was founded in 1904 and plays in the Ligue 1 of France.

Our Story

El OGC Nice was founded on July 9, 1904 under the name of Gymnast Club like a gymnastics club. On July 6, 1908, the football section was created. On December 22, 1924 the club merges with another team from the city, the Gallia Football Athletic Club de Nice, and the new team will be renamed to Olympique Gymnaste Club de Nice . In 1932 the team turned professional.

In 1951 the team wins its first League. His last major achievement was winning the French Cup in 1997.

With the aim of taking it to major sporting goals in France and Europe, the British multinational of chemical products Ineos bought the equipment in August 2019, for a market value of 100 million euros.


  • Titular uniform: T-shirt with red and black vertical lines, black pants and black socks.
  • Alternate uniform: White t-shirt, white pants and white socks.
  • Third uniform: Blue shirt, black pants and black socks.

At first the team's color was yellow and blue, until in 1910 the club played a tournament against AC Milan. In that match, AC Milan loaned the uniform (red-black jersey) to Nice, as the team had forgotten the kits in France. The team then decides that those will be their colors.
