Club Athlétique Bordeaux-Bègles Gironde are a French multisports club, established in 1907, based in Bèglesmarker, in the southern suburbs of Bordeauxmarker. Their rugby union section is their flagship. They play in blue and white chequered shirts, hence their nickname Les Damiers (the draught-boards).

The club now only has youth teams, although the club’s website documents the result of the new team thoroughly. The club has always played at Stade André-Moga, which holds 5,000.


CABBG were the main team of the Bordeaux area for most of the 20th century. They remained in the first division from 1913 to 2003 and won two French championships (1969, 1991) along the way. Along the years, the club’s name changed. It started as Club Athlétique Bègles, then became CA Bègles-Bordeaux Gironde in 1983, then CA Bordeaux-Bègles Gironde in 1988.

CABBG were relegated from the First Division for the first time in 2003, after the professional league’s finance commission declared them unable to continue. A year later, the club was declared bankrupt and forced to play in the amateur third division (Fédérale 1). Finally, in 2006, their senior outfit was merged with that of Stade Bordelais, which played in the professional second division Pro D2 so as to create a side that would be able to jump back to the first division (Top 14). The new team is clumsily called Union Stade Bordelais-Club Athlétque Bordeaux-Bègles Gironde or Bordeaux Rugby Métropole.
