Nîmes Olympique commonly alluded to as basically Nîmesis a French association football club based in Nîmes. The club was established on 10 April 1937 and as of now plays in Ligue 1, the top level of French football.

Nîmes plays its home matches at the Stade des Costières found inside the city. The club is managed by Bernard Blanquart.


The Donning Club Nîmois (SCN) was established in 1901 by Henri Monnier, who, at the age of 21, had just returned from a two-year trip to Britain. He has chosen to begin a modern group in Nîmes, his home town. Initially, the club was for youth Protestants only. In 1908, the SCN played FC Sète for the title of ‘Champions of Languedoc’. Nîmes won, qualifying for the final stage of the French championship, which they lost to Marseille within the first round. The club suspended exercises due to World War I. After the war finished, it continued its exercises on 15 April 1919. In 1922, SCN joined together with another club from Nîmes, F.A. Nîmois, getting to be a single club
