The Brittany Orchestra Play Champions League Anthem For Stade Rennais And It'll Give You Goosebumps

The Brittany Orchestra Play Champions League Anthem For Stade Rennais And It'll Give You Goosebumps

Stade Rennais were given a special rendition of the iconic Champions League anthem this week as they prepare to make their bow in the competition.

The French club will play in the CL group stages for the first time in their 119 year history when they come up against Russian Premier League side FC Krasnodar in Group E on Tuesday night.

After finishing the 2019/20 Ligue 1 season in third place prior to the campaign being ended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rennes secured an automatic passage into the group stages of Europe's elite competition.

It will mark a historic moment in the club's history, particularly after two straight years in the Europa League, and the milestone moment was celebrated by members of The Brittany Orchestra.

In a viral clip on the club's Twitter account, the spine-tingling Champions League anthem begins in the theatre before sounding around Rennes' Roazhon Park.

"Let sacred music resonate!" says the caption.

Back in August, when Rennais had just secured Champions League qualification, the club celebrated in the early hours of the morning by blasting its anthem around Roazhon Park for 15 straight minutes, with footage of the scenes emerging on social media.

Players and staff had gathered at the ground for some celebrations that perhaps weren't as low-key as they would have hoped.

"We had a small event at the stadium with the employees and some players," Rennes president Nicolas Holveck told Ouest France.

"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."

Locals weren't best pleased with being woken up by the racket, according to reports, but a good time was had by all at the club.
