If Marseille can sell out an 80k for every home game I'll pay for the upgrade myself.

Hard to think any french team will fill a stadium that big.

Come on!
There's no need to sell out the stadium at every match, and it is impossible!

With a very uncomfortable stadium and mixed performance from the team, Marseille averaged 49.000 spectators.

How would the average be with a very comfortable 80k stadium and better results?

Possibly against PSG, Lyon and a few glamour European ties. The French mistakenly believe that by lighting a few flares it makes them a passionate football nation. Only England & Germany can you have two relegation fodder teams playing out in front of 30-40,000.

It looked great on paper but very very uncomfortable on windy nights.

Don't want to kill the dream but the truth is forget about this one for now. There's nothing going on for this stadium. The city can't pay for it. The club is having legal issues really I don't see how they can pull that one. The sale to the canadian millionaire turned to a complete fiasco. Nope this one is going nowhere IMO.

THIS IS A CUT AND PASTE FROM ANOTHER THREAD.

Although I'm still dreaming, I hope it's the big project that Gaudin is talking about.
Too bad candidates use to promess anything, especially on sensible subjects, to be elected.
Hopefully, the situation with the Velodrome is a VERY sensible subject in Marseille and I doubt people would easily forgive it if the expansion doesn't happen.

Every 2 week they are next 60000 at the Velodrome and there is 15 years that Marseille doesnt win anything
I think they can be 80 000 without problems
Bernard Tapie said 15 years ago ( for the WC) that 50 000 was ok,they will never have more than 45000 in the stadium,he doesnt want a 60000 stadium ... what a mistake,he can see it now !!!

I would hate to see the corners filled, because its shape makes the stadium so beautiful and unique. But there are not many options to increase the capacity otherwise I fear.

Btw: Was the stadium really in T4xi?

Your second stadium design looks like River Plate's ground.

No there isn't 60k every week. The French attendance record of 57k for
Marseille v Lyon was broken this weekend with the Lille v Lyon match at Stade de France. Marseille averaged 51,604 last season which makes them the 10th best supported club in Europe (a respectable figure)

For a 60.000 capacity VERY uncomfortable stadium with an average 50.000 attendance, an 10/20.000 seats expansion is not something you can't think about isn't it?

I don't think those promises will be kept, but who knows?
Does France have really a big chance to host Euro 2016 or is it a bid that will have serious competition? If the answer is yes, it's almost a done deal this stadium will grow in size.

The record of frequentation is now Lille-lyon of march 1st 2008!

77850!

Only marseille can beat it now. I'm sure they will expand it but perhaps in 10 years

Seriously only marseille can do it now. good luck for next elections because if gaudin continues like this you'll never see expansions.

Some said that we indeed have a serious chance to get Euro 2016 :
England and Spain will probably bid for the world cup 2018 so our most dangerous competitors won't be there.
Portugal had euro in 2004 so they are too out of race.
Germany won't bid because they had WC recently (Although I'm not sure about that).

If Italy and russia don't bid, it's almost sure we'll have it.

So if we host Euro 2016, it's sure a lot of stadium will be upgraded and the Velodrome will be one of them.

On government money just like it should be, right! Am I the only to think that this is pathetic! We are in 08 and they are talking about 2016! Eight frickin years just to play catch up?! This is ridiculous!
