Valenciennes FC is a French football club based in the city of Valenciennes in the Nord Department. They currently feature in the french Ligue 1.

Valenciennes FC were established in 1913 by a group of young men. In 1916 the club was renamed as Union Sportive Valenciennes-Anzin (USVA) and retained their name until 1996.

In 1993 the club became professional. They didn’t achive much success and didn’t hit the headlines much.

Then in 1993 Valenciennes were involved in a match-fixing scandal in which Marseille chairman Bernard Tapie was alleged to have bribed Valenciennes players to drop the match so that Marseille could have more time in preparing for the UEFA Champions League final in 1993. In 1994 as a result of the scandal, the club were relegated to the third division in France and two years later lost their professional status.

In 1996 they were rechristened as Valenciennes Football Club and in 2005 became professional again. They gained promotion to French Ligue 1 in 2005 and then in 2006 regained top flight status.

Valenciennes play their home matches at Stade Nungeser that has a capacity of 16,500. They are currently managed by Antoine Kombouare.
