It was only in the 1980s that TFC again became a competitive force after a long period of uncertainty. Under the direction of Daniel Jeandupeux and Jacques Santini, they qualified for the UEFA Cup in 1986 and knocked out Diego Maradona's SSC Napoli. That feat remains their greatest European exploit. Drawn against FC Spartak Moskva in the following round, Toulouse produced an excellent 3-1 home victory before succumbing 5-1 in the Soviet Union.
Stadium de Toulouse was built in 1937. One year later, at the 1938 World Cup, it hosted the match and rematch between Cuba and Romania in the first round of the tournament.
Nicknamed 'La Ville Rose' (the Pink City) on account of the terracotta bricks used in many of its buildings, Toulouse is France's fourth-largest urban area. The site of a human settlement since at least as far back as the eighth century BC, Toulouse has embraced the technological age in recent years, becoming the capital of the European aeronautics industry and boasting the continent's largest space centre, as well as a vibrant university population.
Toulouse is presided over by the French businessman Olivier Sadran, who took over the club following its bankruptcy in 2001 which resulted in it being relegated to the Championnat National. The club has served as a springboard for several players, most notably the World Cup-winning goalkeeper Fabien Barthez and international striker André-Pierre Gignac.
In 2000, Toulouse were relegated to the third tier as punishment. They quickly returned to Ligue 1 after long-term investment by ambitious young president Sadran and good work by coach Erick Mombaerts, who restored the club to the elite in just two seasons. Élie Baup came in as manager and secured third place in Ligue 1 in 2007. TFC duly entered the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round but were soundly beaten by Liverpool FC.
Saint-Etienne striker Robert Beric - injured and out of commission for Slovenia's two World Cup qualifiers - has admitted that he probably shouldn't have played in his side's 2-0 Rhône derby loss to Olympique Lyonnais.
The stadium was further developed in 1949, but then remained very much the same for almost half a century.

Toulouse was also a host of EuroBasket 1999.
