Olympique de Marseille(also known as l'OM or Marseille) is a football team that plays in Ligue 1, the top level of the French Football League, based in Marseille. Founded in 1899, Marseille is the largest and most successful club in France. It is so far the only French team to have won the UEFA Champions League, in 1993, which rounded off their dominant run of four consecutive Ligue 1 titles. However, at their peak of success, they suffered from scandalous financial irregularities in 1994 which resulted in relegation from the top flight, so the club has not won a major trophy since then.

History

Beginnings of the team

According to André Gascard, a former OM player before WWI, coach and then archivist for the team, l'Olympique de Marseille, an omnisport club, was created in 1892. But the name Olympique de Marseille wasn't adopted until 1899 (Football Club de Marseille since 1897, before that Sporting Club and US Phocéenne). At the beginning Rugby union was the most important team sport of the club, the motto « Droit au but » coming from rugby. Affiliated to USFSA since 1898, it was only in 1902, thanks to English and German (still according to André Gascard), that football began to be played by l'OM. Richer and better organized than other football teams of Marseille (Sporting, Stade, Phocéenne. ..), l'OM, playing at the Stade de l'Huveaune, took the leadership in the city. In 1904, l'OM won the first Championnat du Littoral, opposing teams from Marseille and its suburbs, and took part in the final rounds of the eleventh French championship. At that time, the word « football » applied to rugby, and people used the word « Association » (which would be soccer in North America) for football. The following are the football (soccer) events of the year 1892 throughout the world. ... For other uses, see Rugby (disambiguation). ...


During the twenties, l'OM became an important team in France, winning the Coupe de France in 1924, 1926 and 1927. The team won the French championship in 1929, defeating Club Français. The Coupe de France in 1924 was the club's first major title, won against FC Sète which dominated French football at the time. In the twenties, numerous French international such as Jules Dewaquez, Jean Boyer or Joseph Alcazar played for l'OM.[1]In 1930, Marseille lost against FC Sète, which would be the winner, in the semi-final round. In 1931, the team became champion of the South-East, with victories against rivals such as FC Sète. In Coupe de France, l'OM lost in 5 matches to Club Français, winning the second match which was canceled due to the disqualification of the OM striker Vernicke. Even though the season 1931/32 was less successful, Marseille easily entered professionalism. In 1932, the team became a member of the union of professional clubs. On January 13th, 1932 at 9:15 PM, at the Brasserie des Sports, Mr Dard, Mr Bison, Dr Rollenstein, Mr Etchepare, Mr Leblanc, Mr Mille, Mr Anfosso, Mr Sabatier, Mr Seze, Mr Bazat, Mr Molteroj and Mr Pollack elected the following committee: ... ...

Marcel Leclerc era and crisis

Ajax-Marseille
Ajax-Marseille

The first period of domination of the club in the French League was in the early 70's, under Marcel Leclerc's presidency (1965-1972). His ambition allowed l'OM to return to the First division in 1965/66, and they won the Coupe de France in 1969 and the First division in 1971 with a record of 44 goals by Josip Skoblar, helped by Roger Magnusson. The arrival of Georges Carnus and Bernard Bosquier from AS Saint-Etienne helped them to win First division and the Coupe de France in 1972. Marseille played in the European Cup in 1971/72 and 1972/73 but were defeated by Ajax Amsterdam of Johan Cruyff and Juventus. However, success was not to last. Marcel Leclerc was forced to leave the club on 19 July 1972. The president was a stubborn man, and he threatened the whole league by threatening to withdraw his professional team from Division 1 because the federation refused to accept three foreign players in one team (Leclerc wanted to acquire the Hungarian star Zoltán Varga but he had already the maximum number of two foreigners in his team). But OM decided, instead of following Leclerc against the league, to fire him. [2] Then followed an era of crisis with Marseille only winning a Coupe de France in 1976 and being relegated to the second division, where they played with a bunch of young local players: the "Minots" who allowed the team to return back to First division in 1984. Éric Di Meco was one of them. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ... Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

His first signings were Karl-Heinz Forster and Alain Giresse, who were bought after the 1986 FIFA World Cup. Tapie signed a large number of highly regarded players over the next few years in his pursuit of the European Cup, such as Jean-Pierre Papin, Chris Waddle, Klaus Allofs, Enzo Francescoli, Abedi Pelé, Didier Deschamps, Basile Boli, Marcel Desailly, Rudi Völler and Eric Cantona as well as appointing high-profile coaches like Franz Beckenbauer, Gérard Gili and Raymond Goethals. Between 1989 and 1992, l'OM won 4 League titles in a row and the French Cup. The highlight of the club's history is winning the new format Champions League in 1993. Basile Boli scored the only goal against Italy's A.C. Milan in the final held in Munich's Olympic Stadium.

Come back to success?

Marseille returned to the top flight in 1996 with backing from Adidas's owner Robert Louis-Dreyfus. He chose Rolland Courbis as coach, signed Fabrizio Ravanelli, Laurent Blanc and Andreas Köpke, and l'OM finished 11th for his return. For the 1998/99 season, the team celebrated his centenary and built a team of stars:Robert Pirès, Florian Maurice, and Christophe Dugarry, culminating in a second place finish in the French championship, behind Bordeaux and an appearance in the UEFA Cup Final in 1999, losing to Italy's Parma F.C.. Courbis left the team in November 1999, after a poor start to the season. The closest Marseille to get another trophy was when they reached the UEFA Cup Final in 2004, impressively beating Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, Inter Milan, Liverpool and Newcastle United along the way.

Stadium

From 1904 to 1937, l'OM played at the Stade de l'Huveaune. The club was the owner of the venue, contrary to its current stadium. L'Huveaune, a time named "Stade Fernand Buisson" in honour of a former rugby player who became deputee was renovated at the beginning of the twenties, thanks to supporter's financial help. It had a capacity of 15000. After 1937, l'OM used this venue under Marcel Leclerc's presidency in order to compel the city of Marseille to lower the rent of Stade Vélodrome and during the renovation of Vélodrome for Euro 1984, during the 1982/83 season. The stadium again underwent redevelopment in time for the 1998 World Cup and was transformed into an immense ground composed of two kop ends (Virage Nord and Virage Sud - North Curve and South Curve) which house the supporters groups as well as the main stand, Jean Bouin, and the imposing Ganay stand. Today, the team regularly fills their impressive home, the Stade Vélodrome, which seats 60,013. Marseille's vast support continues to show unwavering and impressive loyalty to the club, despite having several average seasons since their return to the top flight. The fans continue to hope that Marseille will regain its former glory.

Supporters

The Virage Nord-Patrice de Peretti


The North Curve is home to the Yankee Nord Marseille, Marseille Trop Puissant, Fanatics, and Dodgers supporters associations who buy up the tickets at the start of each season and sell them on to their members. Known for being the most intense end of the ground, the Virage Nord is situated next to the away enclosure which is protected by high fences. The stand is divided into sections with each group striving to make the most noise and an unbelieveable coordination at the start of each game sees the Virage Nord decked out with impressive banners to cheer on l'OM. In 2002, the Virage Nord was officially given the name of Patrice de Peretti (1972-2000), the late founder and leader of the supporters group Marseille Trop Puissant.


The Virage Sud


As with the Virage Nord, the South Curve is controlled by supporter's associations with the Commando Ultras 1984 and the South Winners dominating the central section and Amis de l'OM and Club Central des Supporteurs filling the remaining sections of the stand. Also known for their impressive display of banners and colours at the start of the game, these groups strive to make more noise than the Virage Nord, creating an unbelieveable atmosphere with 14,000 people at each end of the ground showing their loyalty to the OM cause.
