My Paris

Olympique de Marseille

Founded in 1899, Marseille are one of the French League’s most iconic clubs, boasting a remarkable history, a long line of gifted players who have worn their traditional colours of white and blue with pride, and an impressive list of trophies lifted over the past century. To date, the club has won nine top-tier league titles, 13 domestic cups and a UEFA Champions League crown (in 1993).

Since the beginning of the 1990s, Marseille have been regarded as Paris Saint-Germain’s principal domestic rivals: when the two clubs lock horns in the unmissable “Classique”, the motivation to win is even stronger than usual, for players and fans alike.

Season 2017/2018 saw OM finish in fourth place in the table; they missed out on Champions League qualification on the 38th and final matchday. Rudi Garcia’s men did, however, go on a fantastic run in the UEFA Europa League, but could not overcome an Atlético Madrid side featuring Antoine Griezmann in the final.

Did you know?

Historically, Marseille have always placed confidence in their youth academy graduates, or “Les Minots” as they are known locally. Over the years, the Robert Louis Dreyfus Centre, named after the club’s former owner, has produced highly talented players such as Alain Boghossian, Mathieu Flamini, Samir Nasri and the Ayew brothers. Marseille have also launched OM Next Generation, a partnership with numerous affiliated clubs, the goal of which is to spot the talents of tomorrow and help them to reach the very highest levels of the game.

Player to watch

Morgan Sanson
18/08/1994
Midfielder

A product of Le Mans’ youth academy, Morgan Sanson got his first taste of top-flight football with Montpellier, then run by the late Louis Nicollin. Having developed into one of the first names on Rolland Courbis’ teamsheet, the midfielder earned his first call-up to France’s U-21 side in 2013, just a year after arriving at Stade de la Mosson.

Transferred to Marseille in the summer of 2017, he went from strength to strength this past season, playing a starring role in 59 matches while scoring 12 goals and providing six assists.

Orange Velodrome

Opened in 1937, Stade Vélodrome is Marseille’s emblematic arena, the stage for several memorable matches that have left an imprint on the history of the club. Prior to UEFA EURO 2016, held in France, the stadium underwent significant refurbishment and modernisation, which increased its capacity from 60,000 to nearly 67,000. On 26 April 2018, during their Europa League semi-final with Salzburg, Marseille set a new record attendance of 62,312. That twelfth man helped Les Phocéens to record a key 2-0 win, during which France international Florian Thauvin found the net.
