Based in the city of Ajaccio, on the island of Corsica, Athletic Club Ajaccio or AC Ajaccio is a professional football club from France. The club was founded in 1909-10 and had their first games on a dump of sand that had been levelled enough to play football on. In 1969, the club moved to a proper stadium, with a 5,000 capacity, and became a part of the elite clubs in the region.

AC Ajaccio have always played in the Corsican league systems and in their entire history, have won the league title 9-times. Known as one of the big-three on the island, in terms of football teams, AC Ajaccio won the title in 1920, 1921, 1934, 1939, 1948, 1950, 1955, 1964 and in 1994. It was only in 1965, though, that the team became a completely professional outfit.

In 1966-67, soon after turning professional, the club went on to win the Ligue 2 title in France, but that would be their only title for a while. Constantly dwelling in the second or third divisions of French football, AC Ajaccio have become a feeder club of sorts, for the top teams. Towards the end of the 1990s, AC Ajaccio went through a good period while playing in the third division. They first made the move into the second division by becoming the champions of the third division in 1997-98, and then went on to win the second division title in 2001-02.

However, AC Ajaccio continues to be a club that hangs around the lower end of the table, fighting to stay out of the relegation zone more than anything else. The club has, however, thrown up some interesting names in the past with the likes of Dominique Baratelli, Francois M’Pele, Dado Prso and Sebastian “Toto” Squillaci playing in their teams.

AC Ajaccio play their home games at the Stade Francois Coty, a 10,660 capacity arena that is named after a local businessman and politician.
