Clermont Auvergne - The Basics

Introduction:

Clermont Auvergne's yellow and blue colours are those  of the city of Montferrand,where Marcel Michelin, the son of the founder of the famous French tyre manufacturer, decided to create ASM (the multi-sport club AS Montferrandaise), for his workers before World War 1

L'ASM , as they are also called, are the traditional underdog, always cited among early favourites but never winning come spring. They have reached the French Championship final eleven times, losing on each occasion, until their eleventh trip in 2010, when they beat Perpignan in their 100th year.
