Stade Rennais FC

Founded in 1901, Stade Rennais Football Club are the pride and joy of Rennes, the capital of the Brittany region. Former Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Olivier Létang took over as the club’s president in November 2017, while Julien Stéphan was appointed coach in December 2018. An ever-present in the top flight for the last 25 seasons, Stade Rennais have succeeded in Coupe de France in three occasions, in 1965, 1971 and 2019, and have taken part in two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup competitions, three UEFA Cups and one UEFA Europe League tournament.

After a subdued 2018-19 season, the club will be participating into the next UEFA Europa League edition, thanks to its victory in Coupe de France over Paris Saint-Germain on April 27th, 2019.

Though both sides have the greatest respect for each other and the match is always played in the right spirit, the famous Breton derby between Stade Rennais and FC Nantes arouses great passion and a carnival atmosphere. Adding a little spice to the fixture is the city of Nantes’ long historical association with Brittany. Once the administrative seat of the region, Nantes has not formed part of it since the 1950s, while Rennes is now Brittany’s sole official capital.

Previous encounters

Paris SG - Stade Rennais

This season in Ligue 1 Conforama, the Rennais have defeated the Red and Blue at Roazhon Park 2 - 1, thanks to goals from Niang and Del Castillo, on matchday 2. The Parisians will be receiving them during the week-end of May 16th - 17th, last match at Parc des Princes.

Did you know?

Two of the trophies won by Stade Rennais – the Coupe de France in 1965 and 1971 – both went missing for several years. One of the replicas had been kept at Roazhon Park, while the other had been loaned out to the League of Brittany so that the club’s triumph could be celebrated across the region. After an appeal was made for their recovery, the club’s prayers were answered with the return of the two pieces of silverware, which will now form part of an exhibition celebrating the history of Stade Rennais.

Player to watch

Benjamin Bourigeaud

An RC Lens youth product, Benjamin Bourigeaud signed a four-year contract with Stade Rennais on 14 June 2017 and scored his first goal for Les Rouges et Noirs exactly two months later against Olympique Lyonnais.

Voted by the fans as the club’s player of the 2017/18 season, Bourigeaud had a big hand in their fine campaign, scoring 10 goals and providing six assists in 37 appearances. A versatile midfielder, he will be looking to consolidate his progress in the Europa League, his first taste of European club competition.

Roazhon Park

Formerly known as Stade de la Route de Lorient, Stade Rennais’ home ground was officially renamed Roazhon Park on 19 September 2015, an occasion marked by the Brittany side’s meeting with Lille OSC. The stadium now has a capacity of 29,164 and was nearly 80% full last season. Situated on the Vilaine River in the centre west of the city, this sleek, ultra-modern stadium is also famed for its stalls selling galette saucisse, a barbecue-grilled sausage wrapped in a crepe and which has become a local matchday speciality.

The stadium is well served by public transport, with bus routes 11 and 14 both running to Roazhon Park. There are also several car parks close to the stadium, though most Stade Rennais fans prefer to walk, helping to create a friendly, family atmosphere on matchdays.
