After an average season and the risk of missing out on European qualification, the construction of a new stadium, a few hundred meters from Roazhon Park, on the site of the former Citroën de la Barre Thomas factory by 2030 , is it still relevant? For many supporters, yes.

Stade Rennais, over the past five years, has changed in size and a brand new stadium with 40,000 seats, instead of the current 29,000, would be more in line with its new ambitions. “No offense to certain supporters, why not give this future stadium the name of a sponsor, suggests Jérémy, Sunday, on the terrace of a bar, route de Lorient. I want my club to win the French championship one day. And for that, you need money. »

“The current stage is saturated”

Others, while praising the charm of Roazhon Park, with its stands close to the pitch, confirm that we must aim higher. “The current stage is saturated. There are no more new subscriptions. For big matches, against our direct competitors or derbies, increasing the capacity by 10,000 places would be welcome. » Some are also counting on a larger stadium to lower the price of seats.

But the status quo or the expansion of Roazhon Park by around 5,000 places also has its supporters. “We have a great stadium, rejoices this supporter. Changing it would be a waste. Stade Rennais, 7e or 8e in the ranking, is in its place. Rennes is not Marseille, nor even Lens. Beware of delusions of grandeur. »
