It had been announced for several weeks, and nobody was disappointed. The Marseille fans did their best to celebrate the 120th anniversary of their OM. While in the Jean Bouin tribune the flags floated in the air, the turns and the Ganay tribune covered themselves in blue and white.
In a second step, just before the entrance of the players, a huge canvas of Rene Dufaure de Montmirail – founder of the club – rose in front of the Ganay grandstand while Notre-Dame de la Garde pointed the tip of his nose in a bend South. And the North turn? The Marseille logo was enthroned while a gold star had just settled on the bottom of the corner symbolizing the European title won in 1993.
