Abstract : The implantation of football-association playing in the Pas-de-Calais department is the consequence of original and complex phenomena: importing the English model can be achieved, from 1872 onwards, thanks to a favourable environment made of a close-knit network of societies for the promotion of traditional games then of gymnastics and shooting. This sportive predestination will allow football-association to dig in its roots through school and army practice, then within the first clubs : the creation of the Union Sportive Boulonnaise (1898), of the Racing Club de Calais (1902) or of the Racing Club de Lens (1906) and their respective developments help us to understand better the structuration process of the Nord soccer as well as its geography. On the eve of World War I, football-association is already more than a mere sporting activity. Through the competitons organized by the USFSA, it allows the expression of new forms of sociability and ensures the promotion of original values, while asserting its popular dimension.
