Born in Guadeloupe, Mario Relmy started his football on his native island, before joining Girondins de Bordeaux's academy set-up on mainland France in 1980. His professional career as a player really began in earnest in 1981, when he made 8 First Team appearances for Bordeaux. The following season, he was scouted by Stade Rennais, who recruited them to bolster their attack. In the 1982/1983 season, he would make 19 appearances and score 8 goals for the Red and Blacks. Rennes finished that season Champions of the Second Division, but chose to loan Relmy out the following season. This pacy attacker then joined Limoges in the Second Division where he would finish top scorer with 23 goals. Boosted by this prolific season on a personal level, he returned to Rennes, who had just been relegated, and helped them to good results in the following 1984/1985 season, which enabled his side to achieve promotion back to the top flight. In the 1985-1986 season, he was still a first team regular in the starting XI in the First Division, and scored 8 goals, making him the club's top-scorer in a season where they stayed up. The following season would be the last in his career at Rennes, and Relmy's team would finish bottom of the league, despite his 8 goals, and he was not retained by the club. His overall record at Rennes was creditable, 53 goals scored in 131 matches. In 1987, he left Rennes to join Niort in the First Division, and despite playing a complete season there, he was unable to prevent his new club from being relegated to the Second Division. After that, he spent two seasons with FC Metz, joining them in 1988, before finishing his career with Cercle de Dijon in 1992. He went on to play in amateur football with US Tamponnaise for three years. He then tried his hand at football management, coaching the U15s of Dijon in his first rôle. In 2001/2002 he was privileged to become First Team Manager at Dijon. In 2005, he took over the AS Saint Priest U19s. His career on the French mainland finished in 2014, when he returned home to Guadeloupe.
