Stade Rennais Football Club
Stade Rennais F.C. is one of France’s oldest football clubs. Formed in 1901 and acquired by Artémis in 1998, it regularly ranks in the Top 5 clubs of the French Ligue 1 premiership.
The Club is also famous for its well-regarded training centre, which is rated as one the best in Europe. The creation of the Red and Black Academy, which includes the Football College, the Training Centre and the Amateur Section, makes Stade Rennais F.C. one of the most advanced clubs in terms of player training. In fact, many members of its current squad were trained here.
The Red and Black stadium - remodelled and renamed Roazhon Park in 2015 - is the largest in western France.
The impetus provided by Artémis has propelled Stade Rennais F.C. to become a major economic and social contributor to its home region of Brittany, attracting support from more than 450 local and national businesses. The Club has also kickstarted several social and charitable initiatives to tackle issues around employment, underprivileged neighbourhoods and the promotion of physical activity through its ‘Bouge!’ (Move!) programme.
