VIDEO: Rennes play the Champions League Anthem in stadium at 3am

French Ligue 1 side upset local residents.


Roazhon Park, home of Stade Rennais, blasted out the UEFA Champions League Anthem at three in the morning on Wednesday.

Neighbours complained after being awoken by a reported twenty minutes of loud music coming from the French Ligue 1 side’s ground.

3am living in front of the Rennes’s stadium which has been broadcasting UEFA music on a loop for 20 minutes. Impossible to fall asleep again, it’s a joke?!?!

The club apparently held a “small event” overnight, with players and employees of the club, to celebrate their qualification for the Champions League next season.


Rennes president Nicolas Holveck told Ouest France:

We had a small event at the stadium with the employees and some players. .

We experienced this among members of Stade Rennais, with the greatest respect for the sanitary conditions in force.

It’s a very, very beautiful evening, with a fantastic outcome.
