Founded in 1896, Urania Genève Sport (UGS)
is the oldest football club in the Canton of Geneva. UGS counts 500 players, about thirty coaches and volunteers. Since August 2018, a younger and passionate committee took over the management of the club with the idea of revitalizing and rejuvenating the club’s image. The Frontenex stadium in Cologny, is the headquarters of the UGS association and the main training ground of the club with four football fields and 4,000 seats. Built in 1920, the stadium will soon celebrate its 100 year anniversary. For a long time, it welcomed not only footballers but also cyclists who came to enjoy a 350-metre asphalt track around the main field. Neglected by two-wheelers and no longer meeting standards because of its surface, the velodrome is not used anymore. Rather than leaving it abandoned, the new committee of the club is giving the stadium a second life as it approaches its centenary.
