l'HISTOIRE DU FOOT BALL AU GABON

C’est Owandault Berre, un jeune homme originaire de « Louis », quartier du Roi Dowé, qui a introduit le football au Gabon.
Au milieu des années 1920, il se rend en France pour des affaires. Il séjourne donc à Bordeaux où il découvre pour la première fois le football. Il s’y intéresse et apprend les règles de ce jeu déjà ancien sur le continent europeen.

50 years of rugby in Libreville

50 years of rugby in Libreville – Libreville is the political and administrative capital of Gabon, the first city of the country in number of inhabitants. Thus logically, rugby players’ biggest breeding ground of the country ! As the Gabonese Rugby Union is joining Rugby Africa, we are coming back on the history of one of their flagship club : the RCL
Between 1975 and 1980, driven by  “President, coach and player” Pierre Duro, the club was linked to the Football Union which became the Gabonese Football Rugby Union. The first President of this new entity was Dr Lamine Diop, today deceased.The Rugby Club of Libreville ( RCL) had been officially created on September 15th, 1960 and was confirmed in the newspaper “Gabonese Republic”, page 565, at the same date.
RCL’s chairman at this time was Mr Gustave Anguile, Finance Minister, helped in his task by Mr Jean-Pierre Juilla, Vice-President.
During the years 1976 to 1986, the RCL faced teams of the French 3rd division on international matches and recorded no defeat. The RCL during these 10 years was equal as a French 2nd division.
On the African continent, Zimbabwe, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Congo, Central African Republic are so many teams that hardly ever beat RCL.
