The Roazhon Park, until 2015 named Stade de la Route de Lorient, is a football stadium in Rennes, Brittany, France. Roazhon means Rennes in Breton.

The stadium was inaugurated on 15 September 1912. It is located at 111 route de Lorient, in west-central Rennes. Rebuilt in 2001 and able to seat 29,778, the stadium is currently the home of Stade Rennais.

The stadium has hosted France men's and women's national football team matches. On 19-20 June 2016 it will host the semifinals of the Top 14 rugby union tournament. It has also been selected as a venue for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, in which it will host six matches—four in the group stage, one in the round of 16, and one semifinal.[3]

The record attendance of 29,490 spectators was set 20 August 2005 for a Rennes – Marseille Ligue 1 match.
