Lille Olympic Sporting Club Lille Metropolis is a French football club based in the northern city of Lille. Better known simply as Lille, it has emerged in recent years as one of the top clubs in France.

Lille was founded in 1944 after the merger of two clubs, Olympique Lillois (founded in 1902) and SC Fives (founded in 1901). Olympique Lillois are of the historical Lille club and won several trophies, mostly non-major ones, between the War years.

SC Fivas, on the other hand, was founded in 1901 and was based in Fives, a suburn in te east of Lille. They were not very successful.

In 1944 these two clubs were merged to formed the Lille OSC as we know it today. Lille two French league titles and five national cups after World War II and an intense rivalry between Lille and local side Racing Club de Lens grew in the subsequent decades.

Lille’s history since the turn of the century has been rosier. They returned to top flight French football in 2000 after spending the previous three seasons in French Ligue 2 and although they have not won the French title since then, they have certainly been a force in French football to be reckon with. Lille have consistently featured in the UEFA Champions League and have featured in the top three in France on a more consistent basis.

Lille currently play their home matches at the 18,185 seater Stadium Lille Metropole and have been playing there since 2004. For their European matches, they rent other larger and more suitable venues.

Lille bear the nickname les Dogues(the Mastiffs).

Lille OSC has spent 47 seasons in Ligue 1 and they have been champions three times, most recently in 1954.
