Hopefully if this development goes ahead it will last longer than the previous redevelopment that came some time in the nineties. It's a much different stadium now to the one that I remember seeing on tele when the cheating bastards drew with Rangers in the first Champions league.

I hope this is constructed. What an amazing stadium it would become. Right now it seems fair to say it is a horrible stadium. The fans and players deserve better. The renders are amazing.

Ok I think we all agree that this proposal is an amazing one and once completed will be a stadium that we will all wow at, but how much of a chance does this have to be built? Can someone please put a percentage figure to it? (Try to make it accurate please)

France organizes euro 2016 remember?

The only doubt is for Lyon that we don't know if this stadium will exist one day...

But the Gerland is certainly capable of hosting Euro matches in a worst case situation (although I find it a much more attractive stadium than OL Land or whatever its called).

Lyon's stadium project is such a mess Its ridiculous
We just need that Prime Minister say "yes" to resolve the file. But he won't for electoral reasons and stupid political rivalry...

It contrasts with the Marseille one for Euro 2016. All details and financing issues were solved so quickly... It's easier when you deal with a real football city...

Lyon project has weakness that other cities projects don't have

Yes it is 100% private but in France it's not enough... Rather have the partnership of the city.

That is great news. This was all agreed upon so quickly. So different to Italy (Cagliari new stadium talks for example, years of talk, still no progress).

Or course I know France is hosting Euro 2016, would I be a true fan of football otherwise?

I can't exactly understand what you are saying here? Are you saying the only doubts are around Lyon's stadium and this one is 100% sure to be constructed? If so, ok then

Really impressed with this design, the sheer size of the roof alone is the most spectacular part of it but I'm also massively impressed with how light and airy it looks within the stadium in the renders given the support structure rises with the roof. For me, definitely the most impressive and visually stunning stadium for the 2016 Euros that we've currently seen.

Also a huge fan of the grandstands within, love the split level tiers as they move further back to make it look even bigger - well done Marseille!

Well, in fact adding a roof to the velodrome had been promised by the city mayor for years...and for the 1998 WC the plan was initially to make the Velodrome a 80 000 seats stadium. But the city chosed the cheapest project possible, which was the 60 000 seats stadium we all know. To be honest I quite like its architecture, in the sense there is only one tier in the stands behind the goals, which makes a great atmosphere. I'm quite happy they keep this. But I still think it's a (small!) mistake not to have gone to 75 000+ seats...

What he's saying is that Lyon's new stadium is indeed facing some difficulties, as opposition for nimbies is quite strong and this project should already be constructed now (I think it's been at least 3 or 4 years that everything's ready, except having the authorizations to build!). Moreover Lyon's president JM Aulas is starting to become bored of this file advancing so slow...
but I think it's going to be build on time. I have more doubts on Lens project (who will certainly be relegated to League 2 next year), Nancy and Toulouse.
But this upgraded version of the Velodrome is definitely going to be built now. so good news! Can't wait to ear Marseille's Ultras songs resonate in such a stadium!

So, just like with many cases, the idea was always there but never the funding? I hope Italy get a WC or Euro soon to really bring heir stadia up to date

75,000+? Being the Milan fan I am, I know very well how sore on the eyes it is to see your team play in a half empty stadium for most of the season. Even Inter, who's average attendance is at 65,000 after five straight years of success both domestically and in Europe is not good to see because the stadium is rarely full.

I am sure that Marseille would fare no better. Having a capacity of 60,000-65,000 is just right. Big enough for the big games but not too big to make the crowds look pathetic in small games.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Maybe you're right. It's almost matter of debate wether a club could fill in a bigger stadium, and I still can't find a satisfying answer to the question "is it better to have a 80 000 stadium for having a more impressive atmosphere for the big games (the ones that matter!) or having a 60 000, but always full.
I used to think the 80 000 option was the best, but I start changing my mind slowly...
And I totally agree with you. Italy deserves a WC or a Euro tournament to finally upgrade its stadium and make some of the nice projects that we keep to see appearing come true!! (and get rid of those bloody athletics tracks everywhere!!!)

The west and east stands will be rebuilt, but the north and south stands will be retained. After the Euro 2016, the north and south stands should be demolished and new stands will be constructed to match with the east/west stands.
