The first French stadium built in concrete, the Stade Vélodrome was built for the 1938 Football World Cup.
The first stone was laid in 1935 and the official inauguration took place during the "OM-Torino" match in 1937. The Velodrome stadium originally hosted other sporting events, including ten finishes of the Tour de France cycling race and the world track cycling championships (hence its name), but also athletics, gymnastics, boxing and rugby competitions. In anticipation of the European Football Championship in 1984, the stadium underwent modifications, the Velodrome track disappearing little by little. At that time, it still covers a part of the South and North curves. Later on, it was totally destroyed for the construction of bleachers.
In July 1992, the executive committee of FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) entrusted France with the organization of the XVIth World Cup of Football. Since some of the matches were to take place in Marseille, it was decided to enlarge the stadium.

A comfortable stadium for an exceptional atmosphere!
The coverage of all the stands, the optimization of the comfort of the seats and the visibility, allow the new Velodrome to benefit from the 5***** label of the FIFA. The stadium now has the necessary qualities to host a UEFA Champions League final.
With its 67,000 seats, the new Velodrome is the largest soccer stadium in France. The atmosphere will certainly be unique and incredible, the songs from the stands will resonate and thrill all the spectators.

Unique VIP areas!
If the real luxury is space, the new Velodrome is a real jewel thanks to its 5,000 VIP seats, its 57 boxes and its 8,500 m2 of lounges. Spread over 6 levels, the VIP services will allow each company, whatever its size, its sector of activity and its clientele, to find THE ideal B to B product to build customer loyalty, attract prospects, animate its network or reward its employees. 5 VIP formulas for all budgets and for all companies!
Designed to be THE stadium of the next 30 years, it will offer to all a privileged place for business exchanges.

The Table des Légendes has a panoramic view of the Velodrome pitch.
Enjoy a gastronomic buffet in the heart of the Olympic history, in the presence of former players who wrote the legend of the club.

At the "Comptoir M" buffets, you will find all the Mediterranean cuisines that make Marseille a unique city. Marseilles has become more beautiful with extraordinary places such as the MUCEM and the Villa Méditerranée, but also thanks to the transformation of the Vieux Port and the Velodrome...

Soccer is to Marseille what the Pub is to England!
Combine the two, and you get a friendly and festive place... Unique in Ganay, this lounge of more than 1,700m2 is the ideal place to replay the game with your guests.
