Racing Club de Strasbourg, commonly known as RC Strasbourg, is a French football team, playing in the city of Strasbourg. They currently play in Ligue 1, having won promotion from Ligue 2 at the conclusion of the 2006-07 season. In 1906, a group of youngsters in the Neudorf neighborhood of Strasbourg bought their first leather football. With the help of their primary-school teacher, they formed a team called Fußball Club Neudorf.

The meetings took place at the Polygone in Alsace. In 1914, FC Neudorf rented the Haemmerle garden for 300 marks a year, an area that would later become the Stade de la Meinau.

After the First World War, when Alsace came under French control, FC Neudorf was renamed RC Strasbourg Neudorf, then eventually Racing Club de Strasbourg. The first stands, made out of wood, were built in 1921. Within five years, Racing had won their first title: Champions of Alsace.

On June 10, 1933, at the restaurant de la Bourse, Racing made the big jump to the professional ranks after a General Assembly that confirmed the addition of Racing. Several months later, they reached Division 1 for the first time, after two two-legged matches, firstly against Mulhouse (0-0 and 3-1), and then against Saint-Etienne (2-0 and 4-4).

Racing immediately climbed to the top of the table, finishing 2nd in '34/'35, 3rd in '35/'36, 6th in '36/'37, and 5th in '37/'38. After World War II, the Alsatian club remained in the first division until the end of the '48/'49 season, when it was condemned to relegation; however, a massive stroke of luck occurred for Racing. Neighbours SR Colmar liquidated their professional team, and Racing was allowed to stay in the first division after all.
