Now open!

After 3 years of renovation work, the new Stade Vélodrome stadium was inaugurated on 16 October 2014, towering over neighbouring Marseille Chanot. Its 67,000 seat capacity makes it the one of the largest sporting complexes in France, second only to the Stade de France in Saint Denis (Paris). This is first and foremost a sports venue, but the stadium also offers 8,500 sq m of private rooms for seminars, evening functions and corporate events. Marseille Chanot is located close by, offering complementary events spaces, as demonstrated by a recent Caisse d’Epargne event, organised across both venues.

Key figures:
– 3 years of work: June 2011 – August 2014
– over 100 companies involved
– up to 1,000 people on the worksite at the same time
– 40,000 m3 of concrete
– 6,000 tonnes of steel for a 65,000 sq m roof

– 67,395 seats (60,000 for “concert” set-up)
– 376 wheelchair accessible seats
– 13 km of seats
– 500 parking spaces
