One cannot 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 protected by a rooftop and a capacity of more than 67,000. It played a major role in the Euro 2016 and remains 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. Fans will undoubtedly be eager to visit the place, from the lawn to the locker rooms.
