CORSICA, A KEY ASSET

A photo of the main soccer stadium in Corsica, the Stade Armand-Cesari, also known as the Stade de Furiani. The photo was taken during a home match of Sporting Club de Bastia, now playing in the French Ligue 2, of which YORK Lubricants is a loyal partner.

 

It is the most successful and popular soccer club in Corsica. Its main achievements includes a French Cup (1981), two French Ligue 2 titles (1968 - 2012), two French National titles (2011 - 2021), an Intertoto Cup (1997), and a "Trophée des Champions" (1972).

Also known for its epic UEFA Cup in 1977-1978, Bastia is one of seven French clubs to have played in a European final.

In the 2021-2022 football season, SC Bastia secured its place in the French second division championship (Ligue 2 BKT), climbing to a modest 12th place. The Corsican soccer club also did very well in the "Coupe de France", being eliminated in the quarter-finals by FC Nantes, the eventual winners of the competition. Régis Brouard's men are currently ranked 7th in the championship, with 5 wins, 4 losses and a draw in 10 games played.

The president of Sporting Club de Bastia, Claude Ferrandi, is also the head of the famous Ferrandi Group along with his brothers Henri and Gilbert. The FERRANDI GROUP has been our official distributor of lubricating oils for Corsica since the start of the century.
