Hi Everyone !
Today, I’m going to talk about Football Club of Marseille: “Olympique de Marseille”
Olympique de Marseille or simply OM, is a French football club based in Marseille. Founded in 1899, the club play in Ligue 1 and have spent most of their history in the top tier of French football. Marseille have been French champions nine times and have won the coupe de France ten times. In 1993, the club became the first and only French club to win the UEFA Champions League. In 1994, Marseille were relegated because of a bribery scandal, losing their domestic trophy, but not the UEFA CL title. In 2010, Marseille became French champions again, under the stewardship of former club captain Didier Deschamps.
Marseille’s home ground is the 60,031-person-capacity Stade vélodrome located in the southern part of the city, where they have played since 1937.
