Grenoble Foot 38, commonly referred to as simply GF38, is a French association football club based in Grenoble, a city situated at the foot of the French Alps. The original incarnation of the club was founded in 1892 and, in 1997, was formed into the club that exists today as a result of a merger. Grenoble currently plays in CFA, the fourth level of French football, after having gone into bankruptcy and relegation to the fifth level of French football in 2011.


Grenoble plays its home matches at the Stade des Alpes, a recently built complex based in the heart of the city. The team is managed by Jean-Louis Garcia. Grenoble wear white and blue.

The club was founded in 1892 as Football Club de Grenoble. In 1997, a merger of Olympique Grenoble Isère and Norcap Olympique led to the Grenoble Foot 38 incarnation. Olympique Grenoble Isère played in Ligue 1 in the 1960–61 and 1962–63 seasons.

It was acquired in 2004 by the Japanese enterprise Index which soon was able to use a new stadium, Stade des Alpes, that registered an initial capacity of 20,000, and which was opened on February 2008, after which it achieved promotion to Ligue 1 in the 2008–09 season. However, after losing their first eleven games of the season, Grenoble were eventually relegated despite a handful of impressive wins (most notably 4–0 against Paris Saint Germain).
