Orange Vélodrome, Marseille

(4.3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
A symbol of the city's cultural life, Orange Vélodrome is one of the most iconic monuments in the region. The venue for the Olympique de Marseille soccer team, it has also hosted the 1998 soccer World Cup, the 2007 rugby World Cup, and many other sporting events. Until recently, it was the largest soccer stadium in France, seating more than 60,000 spectators. In preparation for a 2016 championship series, renovations limited the structure to 42,000 people. Post-renovation, more than 67,000 can enjoy sports here. Arrange your visit to Orange Vélodrome and discover more family-friendly attractions in Marseille using our Marseille itinerary builder.

  • An incredible Stadium with a great atmosphere. I was to the game Marseille vs Paris here, the atmosphere before the game on the road is insane. It is recommended to be 3 hours before the game there and to look at the spectacle. The admission controls are super fast, it is in there in a few minutes at the stadium. The atmosphere in the stadium is awesome.

  • 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.
