The Limoges Football Club 87 is a French football club based in Limoges, the capital of the French department of Haute- Vienne, carrying the atomic number 87.
The club was established in 1947 under the name Limoges FC as the product of a fusion of Red Star Athlétique de Limoges (founded 1917 ) and the former university sports club Union Sportive de Limoges Athlétique (founded in 1929). This name kept the club until 1987, he was forced to declare bankruptcy and was re-established under its current name.
The club colors are red and white. The League team now plays at the Stade Saint- Lazare, which has a capacity of 3,000 seats; for the current audience, the Stade Municipal would be much too large, in which the FC in 1960, the guest of the league leaders Stade Reims, with 17,600 visitors aufstellte his club record.
Club president Gérard Chevalier; the first team is currently coached by Christophe Lassudrie. (As of January 2012)
