HistoryEdit

The club was founded as US Quevilly in 1902 and the team colours are yellow and red. The club reached the final of the Coupe de France in 1927, and the semi-finals in 1968 and 2010. In the 2010–11 season US Quevilly won the CFA Group A and was promoted to the Championnat National.[citation needed]

In 2012, they reached the Coupe de France Final for the second time, beating Rennes 2–1 in the semi-finals (Laup scored in added time). They lost 1–0 to Olympique Lyonnais in the final, which was held at the Stade de France on 28 April 2012.[1]

In April 2015, US Quevilly joined with FC Rouen to form US Quevilly-Rouen Métropole, taking the place of US Quevilly in the Championnat de France Amateur for the 2015–16 season.[2] This was not a straight merger, as FC Rouen continued to exist as a separate entity, with the new joint entity incorporating the colours and crest of FC Rouen into its kits and crest.[citation needed]

In 2016, US Quevilly-Rouen gained promotion to the Championnat National for 2016–17 by winning Group A of the 2015–16 Championnat de France amateur.[citation needed] They achieved back to back promotion to French second tier in May 2017 and will play professional football in Ligue 2 in 2017–18.[citation needed] After having played only one season in Ligue 2, US Quevilly-Rouen were relegated back to Championnat National after having finished 19th place. From 1 July 2018 FC Rouen is no longer part of the project. The logo was changed to take this into consideration.[citation needed]

Promotion back to Ligue 2 was secured on 28 April 2021, after other results ensured the club a top-two finish in the 2020–21 Championnat National.[3]
