Stade Rennais FC winner of the Philippe Séguin Trophies

Created on the initiative of Philippe Séguin, first President of the Fondaction du Football, the Fondaction du Football awards each year through these trophies the best actions performed by amateur and professional clubs, as well as by players.

Since 2008, 2,128 amateur clubs have applied. 241 actions have already been awarded for a budget of over 800,000 euros. Among the good practices identified, some actions are being generalized on the initiative of the Fondaction du Football.

For the 2021/2022 season, in the “professional clubs” category, Stade Rennais FC won the trophy for their action “Get moving! For an active lifestyle”.

The club launched this program on May 5, 2021 with the aim of addressing an important theme: the fight against a sedentary lifestyle and the promotion of an active lifestyle.

Worldwide, we see a significant increase in sedentary lifestyle and physical inactivity, both among children and adults. These two factors have been the leading cause of preventable mortality since 2012. This is a real public health problem, the dramatic consequences of which are still too little known to the general public.

Faced with this worrying finding, the club wanted to make a strong commitment, born from an equally strong conviction: whatever the age, sex or physical condition, the adoption of an active and the reduction of the time dedicated to a sedentary lifestyle are essential levers to improve a person’s health.

The “Move!” revolves around three main axes: raise public awareness of the challenges of combating a sedentary lifestyle and physical inactivity; training of actors on the ground; support for sports in Brittany.

As for the amateur clubs, 16 amateur clubs were named as winners and 4 Grand Prizes were awarded. The latter will receive a financial endowment from the Fondaction du Football.
