The team plays its home games at the 34,000 plus stadium Stade Chaban-Delmas in traditional dark blue kits. The away colors are normally cream or purple.

Throughout history the club has been facing tough times and at the same time enjoyed reasonable success in Europe and some exceptional success back at home in France. Although it was always a well known club in France but it became prominent globally when millions were injected into its rebuilding and restructuring by Claude Bez.

Bordeaux football club’s history is full of players loved and respected around the globe. It has been home to the likes of Zinadine Zidane, Lizarazu, Lacombe, Dugarry, Chamakh and Gourcuff in the past. The club’s current captain and talisman is the talented defensive mid-fielder Alo Diarra who also captained the national team in its last match of the recent 2010 World Cup and is still producing some great talent through its youth system to serve the national team.
