The French Stade is a general sports club Parisian. For its section Rugby, to see French Stage Paris.
HistoryAssociation is founded the December 13rd 1883 with the Café Procope with Saint-Germain-of-Meadows by some teenagers eager to organize the athletic activities of their school, the Saint-Louis college, located Boulevard Saint-Michel in the 6th district of Paris. In the hall of the college, a plate commemorates the event, but locates it in 1887. Other sources affirm finally that it is with the College Buffon (Pasteur boulevard, 15th district) that the institution shaped. This is perhaps due to the fact that one of the first players of Rugby of the team was professor in this college, C. Heywood, a British.
It is then a question simply of making sport, in particular of the race on foot, but quickly, certain high-school pupils are interested in “Rugby football” practiced by the exiled British ones of Paris, and which becomes the practice headlight of the club. The first meetings are done besides against them, and it is them which would have joined the “French” adjective in the name of “Stage”, chosen by the students in homage to the athletes of Antiquity, to differ from these “Gallic” kids well.
The club becomes autonomous and founds its first sections: Athletics, Cycling, Rugby and Tennis. It gains its first national title in cross-country race in 1889. He enlists at the origin of the Parisian high-school pupils, so that its recruitment is with strongly middle-class and especially aristocratic content, as the compositions of its teams of Rugby of the time show it. As opposed to what one could believe the “French” Stage is not a popular club.
In the years 1890, the club takes part in the creation of the Union of the athletic French companies of sports, ancestor of many modern sporting federations. In 1901, the club settles with the Pheasantry in the Parc of Saint-Cloud. It is with its initiative that the stage Roland-Garros is built (in collaboration with Racing Club of France) and is inaugurated in 1928 at the time of a meeting of Coupe Davis. This same year, the Stage gains the championship of France of football, which was still amateur. Until the Fifties, the club goes from success in success in many sports, like the athletics, the table tennis and the hockey. It creates sections handball and volley ball after the war.
The decline starts in the Sixties, even if certain sections remain strong, in particular at the women (field hockey). It is at that time that the athletics leaves Roland-Garros to be installed with the Stade Géo-Andre on the commune of Courneuve. In the Seventies, an alliance with the club of swimming of Courbevoie leads to the creation of a club (the SFOC) which obtains excellent results
They are the exploits of the female athletes of the club, like Marie-Jose Perec, as well as the teams of basketball and handball, which gives the French Stage on the front of the scene in the Eighties. The sections golf, squash and badminton are founded. In the Nineties, the fusion of its section Rugby with that of CASG returns at the French Stage its gloss of antan under the name of French Stade CASG.
The red club with the colors and blue account today more than 12.000 active members. Its athletes gained more than 80 Olympic medals and of innumerable championships of France (more than 1000 in an individual capacities and a hundred titles per team). It counts a score of sections. Among those now disappeared: winter sports, the ski and cricket.
