Orange Vélodrome

Stadium in Marseille

Marseille’s cherished football team plays at Stade Vélodrome, which also hosts major concerts (in the Rolling Stones league). Built in 1937 to seat 35,000, it was enlarged to a 67,00-seater for the 2014 UEFA Championship. Occasional guided tours are available via the tourist office. It’s 4km or so south of the Vieux Port, along av du Prado.
