L’Olympique de Marseille called OM is the soccer club emblematic of my city in France.The reputation of this 118-year-old club is not limited to the city’s borders and goes beyond the French borders.
Indeed this club, because of its record (the highest record in France), its history and especially the fervor
of its supporters make it one of the great European clubs.
For all the family in Marseille, it is like a religion, I grown with my father and my brother who are real fans. One day, my brother went on the match field at the staring signal of the game. All my family watched it on a TV.
The great time of Olympique de Marseille was in the early 90s with the victory in the final of champions league on May 26, 1993 against the great Milan. At this time Marseille was the best team in Europe and since that day its popularity is unchanged.
Over the years, great players came at OM like Deschamps, Drogba, Ribery or Payet.
When you hear about OM, you will for sure hear about the stadium, the Velodrome, known for being the biggest league stadium 1 (66 000 seats), the atmosphere is incredible, people sing all the time, and encourage the team without interruption. The new name is Orange Velodrome.
This year Franck Mc Court, the American businessman, becomes the majority shareholder and will allow OM to compete against Paris Saint Germain in the years to come but also to renew his glorious past on the European scene.
