This was a great disapointment. 90% of the money was spent for the Stade De France in 1998 so they had to build a 60K stadium that cost the price of a 40K stadium...

Several models of stadium were proposed to marseille supporters with the exception of only one : The one finally retained

Not having kept the circular shape was the main criticism in 1998.

THE STADIUM FROM BEFORE 1998 IS STILL CONSIDERED AS THE TRUE VELODROME FOR MARSEILLE SUPPORTERS. IT REPRESENTS THE BIGGEST PART AND THE GREATEST MOMENTS OF THE CLUB'S HISTORY.

Thanks to the new stadium the nightmare is finally over...

I'm from Marseille and i know what i say. No one here could understand those on this forum who prefer the 1998 stadium... We were all ashamed of our stadium.

We feel nostalgic for the one from before 1998 not the stadium from 1998. This is the most important thing you have to know about the Velodrome.
Had I been a fan of OM I would have certainly thought along the same lines, but as a neutral fan of stadium architecture my opinion is that the pre-1998 Vélodrome is the worst, while the 1998-2012 one, while obviously flawed, at least had a slick design indeed. (I know that OM fans have as one of their main arguments the lack of a roof to generate noise, but from my experience with my teams who play on roofless stadiums, it's not roof that you need for noise but hearty fans and a complete and somewhat steep bowl to retain the sound. External visitors (like journalists) have always been impressed with the noise in the 1998-2012 Vélodrome, btw.)

I suspect he meant "fill" not "film".

You're right. The lack of roof wasn't the biggest problem of the '98 version. Before 98 the stadium was roofless and it was louder than after 1998 because the stadium was a bowl and it was sufficient for keeping the sound inside. For instance even during the season 94/95 in second division, the last in the stadium from before 98, the noise was as loud as the previous seasons (CL winners in 93 and finalist in 91)

Some old school pics from that season 94/95 in second division from the official website of the COMMANDO ULTRA 84 :

OM - Guimgamp



OM - Mulhouse



OM - Le Mans



Gueugnon - OM
