    Lens History

    Racing Club de Lens was founded in 1906. They were named after Racing Club de Roubaix and Racing Club de France, notable clubs of the era.

    After World War I, Lens adopted their now-traditional red and gold colors. Some say the colors refer to 17th-century Spanish rule, while others attribute the choice to the blood of coal miners (red) and the high value (gold) of the local resource and industry. This gives Lens it’s nickname, Les Sang et Or (“The Blood and Gold”).

    In 1937, Lens were promoted to the first division for the first time. 1948 saw them reach their first Coupe de France final, but they were beaten by rivals Lille.

    The late 1950s through the 60s were a hard time for the club and city. As the local mines shut down, the finances dried up, forcing Lens to become an amateur club. But the club and town endured, and they were back in the first division by 1973.

    This decade saw the club return to the Coupe de France final, and also participate in Europe for the first time in the Cup Winners’ Cup and UEFA Cup.

    The pinnacle of achievement for Lens was the 1997-98 season, in which they won Ligue 1. This was their only, to date, top league title.

    RC Lens’ home ground, Stade Bollaert-Delelis, holds 38,223 spectators. This is about 6,000 more people than the population of Lens itself. The stadium has hosted games in the 1984 and 2016 Euros, 1998 FIFA World Cup, and 1999 and 2007 Rugby World Cups.
