“Half excellent stadium, half building site”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

I was aware that'd be the case when I arrived, but what I didn't realise was how big the stadium is. When it's complete, it'll be awesome. I was in the away end for OM-Reims so I'll have a much different perspective to folks doing stadium tours and single games etc, but I had a great time there. Marseille is a football town, and the Vélo proves it with the passion of their fans fully on display. It was an up and down game that Reims eventually won 3-2 in additional time (whey!) which meant we were kept in our away enclosure for a good hour after the game!(sounds like Millwall) Area well served by 2 metro stations, and there's plenty of security around to point you the right way.

“Expected much better”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Tour was supposed to be Englush talking, however for every ten minutes of French, around half of minute was dedicated to the english speaking visitors.

Stadium is under construction, and it does need a re-furbishment. It might be a historic stadium, but apart from the history, it's not a nice stadium.

Museum and shop were closed on Sunday.

The new project looks nice, if everything goes as planned, a re-visit will be a must.
