  • 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.
  • Really wonderful stadium - perhaps the best I've ever been to. It's huge but you never feel far from the pitch, and the architecture is very interesting.
  • Great stadium, smartly built. All seats have a great view. Sadly they only sell Carlsberg with O.5% Alcohol and For €6.50!!!
  • 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.
