Stade Velodrome - Review

This huge stadium was built in the 1930s, particularly for hosting the 1938 World Cup. It has a seating capacity for almost 70,000 people. Though indoor cycling and running events used to be held here once upon a time, now it is used almost exclusively for football. The Office of Tourism and Congress of Marseille organises guided tours of the stadium that will take you to usually off-limits areas such as the dressing rooms, the press room, stands, the panoramic lounge, and players’ tunnel. If you get the chance to attend a match, then it is definitely an experience that you should not miss out upon!

Stade Velodrome, Marseille Reviews

  • Great place I've been inside for concert, movie summer time... Its great lots of exits so everyone can quickly get out close to metro and shopping center

  • I was staying in hotel at vieux port, get bus 83 in square, drops you 2 min walk from stadium, shopping centre and metro beside stadium, better photo opportunities on match day. Beautiful area.

  • The Rolling Stones... Excellent acoustics and a fabulous atmosphere. One of the best Stones shows ever.

  • Wasnt allowed to go in, I was told I can't go in because I don't hv ticket, no information was given to us regarding where to get tickets from - the guard who stop us didn't speak English, very disappointing for such big club. I hv travelled from far to see this but left with disappointment. Further more I felt the security guard ignored me at all, but spoke to other people who asked him questions, I m not the one to pull the resist card, but I really felt uncomfortable to be there ☹☹☹

  • Wonderful stadium! Nice lighting during the night! Picture taken during Euro Cup 2016 - France vs Albania.
