in that way yes, and ofcourse I am all for it!!! (hehehe)
When the club goes broke, the stadium will still be there (and that's my only real interest, despite I like Olympique Marseille as a club too, would be a shame but well)
Now they have to build a 70 000 + stadium in Lyon and PSG cannot stay behind. Three badass stadiums (+ SDF) in France. Yep I am all for it!

skaP187:
in the "french football on the rise" topic, i described what Lyon new stadium will look like. it doesn't match your expectation (and mine) from the capacity standpoint but it will be a hell of a stadium. This is not a "maybe" project but a "will be done for sure" one.
Paris have a stadium where they feel comfortable and this stadium is not undefinitly expandable ("Parc des princes expansion" topic). For sure, you could expand it to 80.000 as a 98 world cup project showed it but this is too much beyond PSG owner financial possibilities. For Parc des Prince, don't expect an expansion above 46.000 to 54.000.
THAT's why Marseille wants to expand. Players, black-ties, fans, attendance, TV audience and Marseille hometown people ABSOLUTLY HATE the velodrome as it actually stands.

Ah OK! I missed the spot.
Just because everybody wants it so much.
So, Yes, for me it's a "will be done for sure" project.

I hope deep in my heart that they fix up this stadium with a roof and make the main/bussenis stand round to. I think it is an impressive stadium as it is, only laks a roof MOP

What is a roof MOP???
I also am very pleased with this project.
A big, covered velodrome with an asymetrical look!
Astonishing.
Better that SDF. Should be the n°1 stadium in France.
I don't think there's enough place around the stadium to build a business center

I think that if you destroy some of the warehouses located next to the stadium there's enough room to build anything you want. But there's a catch you need autorization to do it and usually the city is all about it but will it be the case this time I'm not so sure? I hope they allow it and that pravete investor start something there besides if such a stadium is build it's then or never time to get some rejuvenation program in place for the area. Marseille also needs a multipurpose arena for shows and indoor sports. but that's another topic!

I'm not sure but it seems that everything that's around Velodrome is privatly owned.
so if you want to extand it further with shops, hotels and companies, you know the name of the game:
money, money, money.....

Not exactly everything the local Palais des sports (french for arena but generally crappier) is right there, there's also a very hold sport complex and warehouses who are not all in use. But yes you want to rejuvenate you need money and a lot of it. But really a new look stadium surrounded by shit holes well it's not that perfect an environment is it!? all they really need is a letter from city hall giving backing to some other investor to overhaul the zone. They do that all the time in North America can we do it in France I 'm not so sure but they should at least try.

It seems the project doesn't need to demolish or modify what's around the stadium.

And quite frankly, the design is superb (I know some of you don't like it).

I don't think so because nobody cares...
Marsillians want a big/beautiful/comfortable stadium.
I deeply don't think they care about what kind of architecture the stadium area has. their eyes are only focused on the stadium

Their eyes are but not the one of the generous investor who's going to spend around a 140 and who want a small return on investment. Ireally don't think it's going to happen without at least a small retribution in land property.

Sure you"re right.
Perhaps the naming of the stadium should be done.
the "champignon de Paris" stadium would sounds good isn't it?

oh yes it would be good but more seriously I would not have any naming done it's not in the french culture or at least you should not do it with "historical" stadium if the velodrome was to be demolished and a new stade build then yes name it Stade Neuf Telecom or Khalifa Arena I don't give a f..ck.

If not leave it alone... The only stadium who in my opinion would not suffer
would be geoffroy guichard the stade Casino ou le Chaudron Géant.

I think when you name a stadium it's all about the brand image of the company behind it orange arena, thomson park, Motorola garden, Novotel Stadium are fine but some new stadium are having a rough start like the new dick's sporting goods park of denver that thing is bad.

So the RICARD arena would be a good name for Marseille perhaps.....
Anyway, I can't wait to have the lastest news about all this story.
