After coming through the ranks at Lyon, where he faced Les Aiglons during pre-season in 2020, Melvin Bard made his professional debut in December 2019, during a match against Nîmes, before making 18 appearances (including 14 in L1) during the 2020-21 season. His performances for Les Gones opened up the doors to the France youth teams, all the way up to the U21s in September 2020. In the summer of 2021, he featured in the Olympic Games in Tokyo and signed for Le Gym at the same time.
The defender from Ecully wore the Nice shirt for the first time on 8 August 2021 on Matchday 1 of Ligue 1 against Reims (0-0). He then went on to appear on 37 occasions across all competitions during the season. On his left wing, Melvin Bard demonstrated his defensive quality but also his attacking potential, picking up two goals and two assists.
The left-back continued his career in 2022-2023, finishing the season with 44 games to his name. Always combative and exemplary in spirit, Bard took advantage of the Gym's run in the Conference League to discover the European Cup, taking part in 10 C4 matches.
