The boys in blue face RC Toulon at Marseille’s Stade Velodrome on Sunday, 19th April (KO 4.15pm local), the OLSC has prepared updated travel information for supporters. This is current as at 10pm, Friday 10 April…

Nearest airport
Marseille is the closest airport and both Ryanair and Aer Lingus has scheduled special flights on the Saturday and Sunday of the semi final weekend.

Ryanair flights are currently €;79.99 each way so flying in Saturday returning Sunday after the game is €;160 return per person.


We recommend the Port Vieux area of town, there are many options at various prices here, including the IBIS Budget hotel in Port Vieux at just €;69 on the Saturday night for a room.

Airport transfers

Marseille Provence Airport (MRS) is located 27kms from the city centre. The centre is connected by train to the airport (a shuttle bus takes you between the airport and the airport train station). There is also a direct bus service between the airport and central train station that operates every 15 minutes.
