History
• The club dates back to 1904, when the Gymnaste Club de Nice (GCN) was founded in Les Baumettes, a residential area of the city. The organisation was initially geared towards gymnastics but gradually grew to incorporate other sports, including football.

• The nascent team played their first match in November 1908 under the name Gymnastes Amateurs Club de Nice due to a temporary split with the GCN, and later merged with another local outfit to form Gallia Football Athlétic Club, adopting the red and black kit used by Les Aiglons today.

• The current incarnation of the club's name dates back to 1924, when club officials, inspired by the popularity of the Olympic Games in France, decided upon Olympique Gymnaste Club de Nice.

• Nice took their place in the top flight as France introduced a professional league structure for the first time in 1932/33 but were relegated the following year, only returning to Division 1 in the 1948/49 season.

• That upward momentum, coupled with the presence of French internationals Marcel Domingo, Antoine Bonifaci and Abdelaziz Ben Tifour, propelled the club to their first French title in 1951. They secured a historic domestic double one year later and went on to win two more league crowns before the end of the decade.

• Despite finishing as runners-up in the league in 1968, 1973 and 1976, Nice have only one major title – the 1997 Coupe de France – to show for their efforts in recent decades.
