  • If you are not from the region and a football fan, I advise you to get there one evening of gala match atmosphere provided inside the Stadium course. In the journée(autre que jour de match) you can visit.

  • The only soccer game I ever attended was Aug. 2015 in the magnificent Vélodrome. All seats have wonderful views and it's easily accessible by mass transit. Overall, a great experience.
  • Amazing Stadium. I'm glad I came after the refurbishment. Very clean inside and everywhere offers a good viewing platform. Two metro stations nearby are also handy for getting there from the centre of Marseille.

  • Watched a game during Euro 2016 and absolutely loved the atmosphere of the stadium. It's beautiful and impressive and the sound is just amazing!
