AS Beauvais was founded in 1945 under the name AS Beauvais-Marissel as a result of a merger between local clubs Véloce Club Beauvaisien and Union Sportive de Voisinlieu. The club began its history as an amateur club, but achieved professional status in 1986. From 1986–2002, Beauvais played in the second division of French football. Despite having an unknown status nationally, Beauvais has a flourishing record locally in the Picardieregion. The club has won the Division d'Honneur of Picardie six times and has attained the Coupe de l'Oise 15 times, as well as one Coupe de Picardie victory.
