Here’s a little tyre insight about the Yellow machine that is ASM Clermont Auvergne ahead of this weekend’s Top 14 Final in France.

With the mighty Clermont Auvergne due to face off against Stade Francais in the French Top 14 Final this coming weekend we have put together an interesting read on where this Giant of a club’s roots lay.

The club was founded in 1911 by Marcel Michelin, the son of André Michelin, founder of the Michelin tyre company. Located in the French city of Clermont-Ferrand, where Michelin established its first factory, the team, known then as ASM (Association Sportive Michelin), was formed as a recreational amenity for Michelin’s very own employees.

Based at the intimidating 18,000 capacity Parc des Sports Marcel Michelin, the club has come on a long way over the years and is now ranked as one of the best club teams on the planet. With their now famous colourful supporters and gigantic stature it could be said that the clubs product mirrors that of its founding patron and current sponsor, Michelin Tyres.
