  • 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.
