Welcome to Marseille
Marseille is the 2nd largest city of France, located on the French Riviéra. From colourful markets, to the Calanques, and from the Panier area to the Vieux-Port and the Corniche, Marseille has definitely a lot to offer. You can visit the fabulous restaurants and cafes, or you can do many adventurous things such as diving and hiring boats! And of course, if the weather is fine, you can simply go to the beach!
And then there is football. Olympique Marseille is the city’s proud. The magical Stade Vélodrome is the stadium of Marseille, which is the biggest football stadium in France with a capacity of 67,350 seats. On the 12th of May, Marseille will take on one of their biggest rivals: Olympique Lyonnais in the Velodrome. Even though Marseille isn’t having one of their best seasons, this is a game about more than just 3 points. It’s about honour and pride. Besides that, Lyon has beaten Marseille 4-2 in the beginning of the season, so Marseille is definitely looking for a sweet revenge.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Not only do we spend countless hours planning the best itineraries, but we also try to curate groups of similar travellers to give everyone the best football experience possible. Together with local fans, we designed an unforgettable football weekend in Marseille.
These are not pre-scripted, every minute scheduled “group tours.” We don’t script. We plan. So you don’t have to. And then we have a really, really good time. You can expect chill vibes, new friends and great times. We run each trip as if we were traveling with our own group – because, by the end of it, we are.
We will meet you at your top location for accommodation. Now it is time either to rest or drop your bags and go have a nice walk around the city.
When everybody is arrived, we invite you to join us on a very traditional dinner, in a place that only locals go. After that, we’ll take you to a neighborhood where we can find the best bars in town, drink some beers and why not extend the night to some of the best French nightclubs?
Matchday! Today is about more than just a game. Marseille will take on their biggest rivals Lyon. In Marseille it’s tradition to head to the Vieux Port for a morning coffee with breakfast and a newspaper.
In the afternoon we will head to the Canebière which is one of Marseille’s most famous streets to walk to the stadium. The ultras rip flares and flashbangs the entire walk there and it’s a special thing to see. Once we arrive at the stadium the party really begins.
After the game we can go out, and let’s be honest, what’s better than celebrating a win at night?
If you survived last night it’s time for the VIP stadium tour at the Stade Velodrome, the biggest football stadium of France. We even have access to the dressing rooms and the pitch!
After that, we believe it is time to say goodbye, pack your stuff and go back home with unforgettable memories! If you still have time left, we recommend to enjoy the sunny city of Marseille!
