OGC Nice announched that Les Mutuelles du Soleil will be the new shirt sponsor for the rest of the 2011/12 season. The logo of Les Mutuelles du Soleil already appeared on the front of the jersey in the match against Paris Saint Germain last wednesday.

"We are very happy and proud that an enterprise of the scope of Les Mutuelles de Soleil is becoming the lead partner of OGC Nice Côte d'Azur. We have found during the discussions conducted a real motivation and a common desire to do big things together."
