Dear to the emblematic President of the AS Saint-Etienne Roger ROCHER who under his rule write the most glorious chapter of their history and some pages of French football legend.
The ASSE won nine of its ten championship titles, won six French Cups, and won over the whole of France during the formidable European epic between 1974 and 1976 which culminated in a Champions Cup final that was narrowly lost (0-1) against Bayern Munich on 12 May 1976.
The keys to success: flawless stability in sports (three coaches in twenty years: Jean Snella, Albert Batteux, Robert Herbin, co-opted by their predecessors and united in the same philosophy of the game), a youth training policy without equal or nearly equal in Europe.
Roger ROCHER was also president of the Olympique de Saint-Etienne club. A training club par excellence whose stadium bears his name..
The sports complex is one of the best working tools of the Loire, including, a grassy field of honour, a synthetic field, a stabilized field bordering a training grass plateau.
Its proximity to the city centre of St Etienne and the motorway allows it to be easily accessible.
FMC ACADEMY strives to bring the same professional quality of training and equipment that professional football clubs use today.
The quality of the training is based on a cognitive training measured by connected data that allows the very precise tracking of the progress of each Academician. This data is then integrated into a biometric CV genuine passport for a future career and very valuable for our partner clubs.
