A symbol of the city's cultural life, Orange Vélodrome is one of the most iconic monuments in the region.

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.

  • I don't like football, but I was visiting a friend in Marseille so we decided to go, because the outsides are quite nice! So we went a week ago to Olympic Marseille/Olympic Lyon match, and it was really nice. The insides are super scenic and spectacular.
  • Couldn't organise jack ! Trying to get in to stadium was chaos and dangerous ! Not what id expect from a supposed top stadium. Been to better organised and safer stadiums in South America !!
  • Great vantage point to see the Russian fans attack the England fans. The funsters.
  • I virus esta parli SMS is stade olypique de marsille
  • 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.
