A Change for FC Sochaux-Montbeliard And New Shirt Sponsor
Those early years of French professional football were the most successful for FC Sochaux-Montbeliard. They won the to-flight Ligue 1 title twice in 1935 and 1938, but have not won since. Their most recent honour was in 2007 when they won the Coupe de France, adding to the title they won in 1937.
FC Sochaux-Montbeliard remained as part of Peugeot until as recently as 2015, when the company decided to sell the club to Ledus, a company based in Hong Kong. Prior to 2015 the clubs football shirts often featured the Peugeot sponsorship logo, and now they feature the Ledus logo.
The change in ownership is obvious when looking at the FC Sochaux-Montbeliard football shirts. However, other than the sponsorship change the club has consistently used a yellow home jersey with black and red accents. Italian sportswear company Lotto makes the shirts.
