The club nearly named their stadium the same as Celtic’s.
Celtic Park is one of a kind. The 60,355 capacity stadium in Glasgow is one of the most exciting venues in European football and The Bhoys are very proud of their home ground.
But recently it looked like there could have been another Celtic Park in Europe.
It was certainly an odd proposal for Celtic fans, but Ligue 1 club Stade Rennais were recently said to be considering changing their stadium name to Celtic Park.
Rennes currently play at the Stade Route de Lorient. But this summer the stadium, which currently has multicoloured seats including green and blue, is being revamped.
The seats are being changed to entirely red this season to reflect the club’s colours.
As part of the change the club were also asking fans to vote for a new name for the stadium. The names on the agenda were, Roazhon Park, Roazhon Hermines and CelticPark Stadium.
The name has been suggested to highlight the Celtic cross’ prominence in Brittany’s heritage and the ‘Celtic Kop’ at the current stadium
Celtic fans can however breathe a collective sigh of relief. The stadium has been renamed Roazhon Park. It was revealed by L’Equipe earlier today that fans have chosen this as the new name of their current stadium.
Just the one Celtic Park then.
