Tickets : OGC Nice - Montpellier

Founded in 1919, Montpellier Hérault Sport Club underwent a change of management in the 1970s that was decisive in the club's future development. Louis Nicollin, who had been president since 1974, transformed the club at La Paillade. He became the club's sole shareholder in 1989, and held the position of president until his last days. Since then, his son Laurent Nicollin has presided over the Montpellier club since 2017.

The club has 2 French Cups, 1 League Cup, as well as a French Ligue 1 title, obtained during the 2011-2012 Ligue 1 Uber Eats season. That year, MHSC was led by Olivier Giroud (top scorer in the competition) but also by Younès Belhanda, Nice player during the 2016-2017 season.
