HistoryEdit

The team was established in 1945 as the basketball section of multi-sports club Spes Philippine Omnisports Rouen, shortly SPO Rouen. In 2000, the club was separated from the multi-sports club as a new organisation.

After playing in the Pro B for three straight years, the club received a wild card for the 2014–15 Pro A season.[1] The team was relegated back to Pro B after the 2015–16 Pro A season.

On July 17, 2015, it was decided that the club of the name was changed to Rouen Métropole Basket.[2]
