Marseille to get Velodrome back for Bordeaux

PARIS - Olympique Marseille will be able to host Ligue 1 champions Girondins Bordeaux at their Velodrome stadium on August 30, the club said on Friday.

Marseille will play their first home league game of season, against Lille on Sunday, at Montpellier because legal experts needed time to finish their inquiry after a stage built for a Madonna concert collapsed last month, killing two workers.

The experts have now finished their work and the scene will be cleared on time for Marseille to host Bordeaux in their next home game, the club said on its website.
