History edit

The club was founded in 1968 following a merger of Sporting Club du Cannet and Association Sportive Rochevilloise.[3]

Cannet Rocheville's first appearance in the Coupe de France proper came in the 2021–22 edition of the competition.[2] The club won against Istres[4] and Bastia-Borgo in the seventh and eighth rounds before being drawn against Ligue 1 giants Marseille in the round of 64.[5] ESCR's sporting director and assistant coach Christian Lopez reacted to the draw by saying that it was "fantastic" for the club.[5][6] The match, held at the Stade Vélodrome, ended in a 4–1 victory for Marseille.[7]
