Athlétic Club Arles-Avignon (commonly referred to as Arles-Avignon or simply Arles) is a French football club originally based in Arles. The club was formerly known as Athlétic Club Arles but in moved to the nearby commune of Avignon and adopted its current name in 2010.
Arles-Avignon currently plays in Ligue 1, the top division in French football, having earned promotion to the league for the 2010/11 season. The club’s ascension to the first division is notable due in part to the fact that the club achieved successive promotions in four of the past five football seasons.
Last week, Arles-Avignon became the last French Ligue 1 club to officially launch its 2010/11 home kit. The new Uhlsport strip was unveiled on Tuesday before the team took its official 10/11 picture.
Arles-Avignon is currently in 20th position in the French Ligue 1 with just 6 points from 13 matches played.
