As a club based in the historic province of Brittany, Nantes have a number of regional rivalries universally called the Derby de la Bretagne. The saucy moniker designates any football match between the most notable clubs in the region. Apart from Nantes, these include Stade Brestois 29, Rennes and Lorient from Ligue 1 but also Guingamp of Ligue 2 and a couple of low-tier football clubs.
Nantes and Rennes are the two biggest clubs in the region and are historically identified as the carriers of the Brittany rivalry. The Derby de la Bretagne stems back to 1963 when these two clubs first locked horns in a competitive match.
The Canaries were officially formed during the World War II in 1943. Several local clubs joined forces to form one large club and show unity in dire times which could even have a poetic meaning given the circumstances. Stemming from the unique atmosphere the club was founded in is the collective spirit Nantes are renowned for even today.
With eight Ligue 1 titles decorating their trophy room, the Canaries are one of the most successful clubs in France. Three Coupe de France trophies and on Coupe de la Ligue medal add to the silverware count. They play their matches at the Stade de la Le Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau which can fit 35,000 people.
