gaudin (mayor) said yesterday that it was not for before 2012 because of the long process , that the project will be chosen by concourse ( not strengthly the one of gulizzi ) , and that 80000 increasing was maybe a little too much , several thousands of seats being useful though .

Ugly. People might like it now but they will hate it in 20 years.

Maybe 80,000 would be too much but OM are a very well supported club. By far the best supported in France. They currently average just under 50,000 with a stadium capacity of about 58,000.

I'd have thought that an increase to no more than 70,000 would be about right.

as soon as they have a competitive team again, 80.000 seats will appear not to be enough. I think they under-estimate the possible attendances, especially concerning the european champion's league. Marseille is THE city of football (soccer) in France. By the way, I never liked the current design. It's windy and looks fragile from the outside. I'd have preferred a San Siro-like structure. But as long as it hasn't been decided yet, I keep hoping for such a huge structure and capacity.

This stadium definately needs upgrading, I was there last week as an away fan and from an away fans point of view it was an awful experience.

The visiting fans are only allocated a small corner of the main open side, surrounded by a 25ft fence, no-one sits in there as many of the seats in this all seated area are missing so everyone stands to try and gain a sight of the pitch.

This may not be so much of a problem in the rest of the ground but personally I found that the ground may look nice on TV, but being there is a completely different experience.

One thing I should add is that if this stadium does get a roof those home fans will be incredibly noisy, they are really vociferous without a roof so just imagine how they would be under cover.

I Couldn't resist....

The team, the city and the people living here need and deserve this stadium.

It Would cost around 140 millions €.

The stadium as it is now make me vomit. It's a shame :
- horrible look
- terrible accoustic (fans chants are lost in the sky)
- windy
This horror cost 391.9 millions francs (that make around 60 millions €) in 97 and, believe me, people even the die hard fans of OM hate it!!!

Oh I know, I do hate it too!
I always though they deserved a roof... it looked good one season after the world cup. But it's still nice under the perfect sun and when PSG is getting is ass whopped by OM once every now and then.

Today it looks like ...crap, the coffin would be nice. But a 140 for 20000 seats and a roof that has to be world record for simple expansion! Nowadays a 140 gets you what a brand new 40000 seater!
