Description: Stade Vélodrome

When deciding to rebuild the famous Velodrome in Marseille ahead of Euro 2016, three main criteria were taken into account: capacity increase, covering all spectators and creating additional corporate seats.

Municipal authorities had two options, with choice being between consortiums of Vinci + Populous and Bouygues + SCAU. The other concept was chosen after having offered to retain the unique shape and even emphasizing it with an ellipsoidal roof. Stands along the pitch are were extra capacity, including luxurious seating, will be created.
