Association de la Jeunesse Auxerroise (commonly known as AJ Auxerre or simply Auxerre), is a French football club based in the commune of Auxerre in Burgundy.
Auxerre currently plays in the top-tier of French soccer, Ligue 1, and finished last season in an impressive third position. Courtesy of last season’s finish, Auxerre qualified for the Play-off round of the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League and eventually made it to the group stage of the competition.
Yesterday AJ Auxerre launched its home kit for the 2011/12 season. The club’s kit provider is up and coming French sportswear manufacturer Airness. Founded by Malian entrepreneur Malamine Koné, Airness has also provided kits for French League 1 and 2 sides Le Havre AC and Toulouse FC.
