With legendary defenders Roger Marche and Robert Jonquet, Reims went on to win their first ever Ligue 1 title in 1949. The best period in the Stade De Reims stats followed, since they won five more league titles over the next fifteen years. Plus, Reims won their first-ever Coupe de France in 1950 by defeating Racing Paris 2-1.
Their title in 1955 was an important one, since they qualified for the first edition of the European Cup. Reims made it to the inaugural final, but fell in a 4-3 thriller to a tough Real Madrid team. Then, Reims signed Just Fontaine, who went on to become their all-time leading scorer. Another massive moment in the Stade de Reims stats was their league and Coupe de France double.
Reims had another successful campaign in the 1958-59 European Cup and reached the final, where Real Madrid awaited once again. Reims lost to Real Madrid 2-0 but regrouped to win Ligue 1 titles in 1960 and 1962.
