Stade Vélodrome Football Ground

Stade de Velodrome Football Stadium is the home place for the matches of OM since 1937. The previous stadium of the club was called Stade de l’Huveaune. Stade Vélodrome officially opened on the 13th of June 1937 with a friendly match between Olympique de Marseille and Torino.

For the 1998 World Cup, the stadium was completely renovated and its capacity was increased from 42000 to 60000 places. The four platforms names are from sportsmen (the road runner Jean Bouin, the cyclist Victor Ganay), a historical figure of the 1720 plague (Southern Turn Roze Knight), but also of one charismatic fan who disappeared in 2000 (Northern Turn Patrice De Peretti).

The seating capacity of the stadium is increased for the UEFA Euro 2016. Currently it can hold 67,000 spectators. The renovation included the complete or partial reconstruction of the two principal stand tribunes, minor works on the stands at both ends, and the construction of a wave shaped roof that will cover the complete stadium.

Work was finished in September 2014. The new project has changed the face of the neighbourhood. It includes a shopping centre, hotel, living space, office space and a sports clinic.
