INEOS owns French Ligue One side OGC Nice, Swiss Super League side FC Lausanne-Sport and works with partner club Racing Club Abidjan of Ivory Coast Ligue One.


The ambition is to have successful and sustainable football clubs with success in their respective leagues with the ability to reach European competition. At the same time it is expected that whilst the clubs are run federally like any other INEOS business they will work together to optimise opportunities. This can be expected to encompass: scouting, player assessment and acquisitions as well as medical and fitness.

A key focus is on the development of top young talent across all the clubs, providing the critical pathways for their development.

We are committed in the long-term to the development and growth of our clubs, our players and our coaching staff at all levels. To be sustainable franchises the clubs must also excel on their commercial activities.
