One can't speak about Marseille without evoking the name of its football stadium, the Stade Vélodrome. This is a sacred institution for the people of Marseille, especially the fervent supporters of the Olympique de Marseille football club.
Still called the Vélodrome, though its cycling track disappeared in 1985, it is now a veritable temple of football, with 65-metre-high stands and a capacity of 67,000. It will play a major role in the upcoming Euro 2016 and is the most beautiful football stadium in the host country, thanks to the fans' proximity to the pitch and the cauldron-like architecture, which resonates like a concert hall with the chants of supporters.
