Montpellier HSC Tryouts & Club Guide: History, Stadium, Players, and More!
Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of FCScout.com.
I fell in love with the game at a very young age like many of you. I’ve been following and playing soccer for many years.
Throughout my career, I always enjoyed helping soccer players chase their dreams, which is why I started this website. I wanted to reach a larger audience outside of my local area and fcscout.com was born.
This website is a platform I will be using to update club pages on any tryouts, stadiums, players, tech, and more from clubs around the world. I also create free recruitment profiles for players looking to have that extra competitive edge when reaching out to clubs.
That’s it. That’s my pitch for you to stick around (or browse the site as you please).
This is already too much text for a “see more” drop-down button thing. If you want to reach out to me, head on over to my contact page 🙂

Montpellier HSC History
Stade Olympique Montpelliérain (SOM) was the original name of the club that would later become Montpellier, and the club was known by that moniker for the most of its history. After having played under a number of different identities up to 1989, the club finally settled on the name that is still in use today.
The French football club Montpellier was one of the original clubs to join the country’s top level when it was established. In addition to Marseille, Rennes, and Nice, Montpellier is one of the few clubs who participated in the first season of the first division in 1932–1933 and is still competing in that division today.
The 2011–12 campaign was the first time that the club was victorious in Ligue 1. The other honors that have been bestowed upon Montpellier to this point include taking home the Coupe de France in 1929 and 1990, as well as the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 1999.
Laurent Nicollin, the son of the late Louis Nicollin, a French industrialist who had owned Montpellier since 1974, is the current owner. Laurent Nicollin inherited the property from his father. In its long and illustrious history, the club has given birth to a number of well-known athletes, the most notable of them being Laurent Blanc, a former manager for the French national team.
Blanc is also the player with the most goals scored in the history of the club. Other players such as Eric Cantona, Roger Milla, Carlos Valderrama, and Olivier Giroud have donned the colors of Montpellier at some point in their careers. A women’s team was first fielded by Montpellier in the year 2001.
Football matches are played at the Stade de la Mosson, which is located in Montpellier, France. The capacity of this stadium, which is home to the Ligue 1 club Montpellier HSC, is 32,900 people. It had a capacity of 16,000 seats when it was completely reconstructed in 1998 so that it could play host to six games during the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
In addition to that, it hosted matches during the group stage of the Rugby World Cup in 2007, and it was one of the nine stadiums that were utilized for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
