Chambly

Football Club Chambly Oise is a French football club based in Chambly in the Hauts-de-France region. Their home stadium is the Stade des Marais in the town, and they compete in the Championnat National, the third tier of French football.

History

The club was founded in 1989 and previously played in Ligue 2, the second division of French football, after achieving promotion from the Championnat National in 2019. They were relegated back in 2021. They previously won promotion from the Division d'Honneur in the 2009–10 season. The club's emblem and kits take a heavy influence from Italian club Inter Milan.

On 1 February 2017, Chambly achieved a club milestone by drawing with French top-flight outfit Monaco 3–3 during regulation time in a Coupe de la Ligue match, before eventually losing 4–5 in extra time. On 1 March 2018, Chambly defeated Strasbourg 1–0 to reach the semi-finals of the Coupe de France for the first time ever. However, the club suffered a personal tragedy as Walter Luzi, the club's founder, died in a hospital on the same day.

On 19 April 2019, the club achieved promotion to Ligue 2 for the first time in its history. Due to the promotion, the club would play its league matches in the 2019–20 Ligue 2 season at two venues; fifteen matches at the Stade Pierre Brisson, and four at the Stade Sebastien Charlety, as the Stade des Marais did not meet the standards for Ligue 2 football. The Stade des Marais is being upgraded to Ligue 2 standards, with a capacity of 3,000 envisioned. However, construction was temporary halted in December 2020.
