Monaco Football News & Transfer News

Association Sportive de Monaco Football Club, commonly referred to as AS Monaco, is a professional football club based in Monaco. It was founded in the year 1924. Although it is sometimes regarded as a French outfit, the club claims to "represent proudly the Principality of Monaco, faithful to its roots and opened to the world".

Monaco currently plays in the top tier of French football, the Ligue 1 – a competition the club has managed to win 7 times. They have also won five Coupe de France trophies, which makes them one of the most successful clubs in France.

In December 2011, two-thirds of the club was bought by an investment group led by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev. Since then, Monaco has been funded by Rybolovlev's financial backing, following which the club quickly returned to Ligue 1 – a title for which it now competes.

AS Monaco's traditional colours are red and white, due to which the club is also known as Les Rouges et Blancs (The Red and Whites). The team plays its home matches at the Stade Louis II in Fontvieille.
