They also currently compete in the European competition, the Heineken Cup. The club have been runners-up in the French championship and the Challenge Yves du Manoir competitions, and have won the Challenge Cup.

Founded in 1906 as "Club Sportif Bergusien". They play at Stade Pierre Rajon (capacity 9,441). They are based in Bourgoin-Jallieu in Rhône-Alpes. The club finished 6th on the regular season ladder in the 2005-06 season.


The club was established in 1906 as "Club Sportif Bergusien". In 1997 the club had a very successful season; contesting the Challenge Yves du Manoir final, losing to Section Paloise 13 to 11, as well as making it to the final of the French championship, where they went down to Toulouse, 12 to 6 at Parc des Princes in Paris. Also that year they made it to the final of the Challenge Cup, where they defeated fellow French club Castres Olympique 18 to 9 in Béziers. They played in the 1997-98 Heineken Cup, winning two of their 6 pool fixtures, missing out on the finals.

The club had similar success in various competitions in the 1999 season, again contesting the Challenge Yves du Manoir, which they lost to Stade Français Paris 27 to 19, as well as contesting the European Shield final, which they also lost, to AS Montferrand 25 to 16 in Lyon. The club saw similar results in their 1999-00 Heineken Cup season to that of the 1997-98 competition, winning two of their six pool fixtures, not moving into the finals.

CS Bourgoin-Jallieu also contested the final two Challenge Yves du Manoir finals, in 2003. They did however lose both games, being defeated by Stade Rochelais 22 to 20 in early 2003, and losing to Castres 27 to 26 in November 2003. In the 2002-03 Heineken Cup the club achieved its best result yet, finishing second in their pool, winning four of their six games, but still missing out on the finals. However, their 2004-05 Heineken Cup campaign was not successful at all, losing all six pool games and finishing last in their group.

For the 2006-07 Heineken Cup home fixture against Munster, Stade de Genève which can hold over 30,000 spectators was used instead of Stade Pierre Rajon. The attendance on the day was 16,255
