Marseille’s home ground – The Stade Velodrome is one of the most unique stadia in France

Capacity- 67,000

The Stade Velodrome will be hosting its first game when England face Russia on the 11th June. Apart from that, the stadium is scheduled to host four group stage games, one quarter final and of the two semi-finals.

Built in 1937, the stadium is home to French side Olympique Marseille and had hosted two games in the 1938 FIFA World Cup. It was rebuilt prior to the 1998 showpiece event. Previously it had a cycling track circling the pitch but now that has been done away with. This is one of the oldest stadiums which will be used in this year’s tourney.
