History
• The Pink City was left without a big side in 1967 when Toulouse FC sold its players and place in the French top flight to Paris outfit Red Star Football Club 93, but three years later a new club, US Toulouse, rose from the ashes.

• Adopting red and yellow jerseys, Toulouse started out in the second division and in 1977 club president Daniel Visentin reclaimed the name Toulouse FC. Now wearing purple and white, Les Pitchounes gained top-flight promotion in 1982.

• A side containing Jacques Santini and Swiss forward Daniel Jeandupeux earned a famous penalty shoot-out victory against Diego Maradona's SSC Napoli in the 1987/88 UEFA Cup, Toulouse's maiden European campaign, but it failed to herald a bright new era.

• Instead, with goalkeeper Fabien Barthez having made his breakthrough and moved on, Toulouse were relegated in 1994. They subsequently bounced back and forth between Ligues 1 and 2 before slipping to the third flight in 2001 after financial problems.

• Toulouse were back in the top flight two seasons later, steadily finding their feet before a memorable 2007 campaign when they finished third to earn a place in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round. The draw was unfavourable, however, and Liverpool FC overpowered them 5-0 on aggregate.
