Stade or Orange Vélodrome Football Ground
Stade de Velodrome Football Stadium is the home place for the matches of OM since 1937. The previous stadium of the club was called Stade de l’Huveaune. Stade Vélodrome officially opened on the 13th of June 1937 with a friendly match between Olympique de Marseille and Torino.
For the 1998 World Cup, the stadium was completely renovated and its capacity was increased from 42000 to 60000 places. The four platforms names are from sportsmen (the road runner Jean Bouin, the cyclist Victor Ganay), a historical figure of the 1720 plague (Southern Turn Roze Knight), but also of one charismatic fan who disappeared in 2000 (Northern Turn Patrice De Peretti).
Again, further renovations took place for the 2016 European Football Championship. Work was finished in September 2014. The new project has changed the face of the neighbourhood. It includes a shopping centre, hotel, living space, office space and a sports clinic.
Look for the best accommodation for your visit to the city to catch a football match, be sure to save your money and stay at one of the many cheap or more luxurious 4 star hotels within easy reach of the ground.
