Forget the wealth of Paris, to get the heart of French football you need to head south, to the port, to Marseille. A club steeped in history and tradition, boasting some of the game's most passionate support, this is football at its coolest.
We've joined forces with the club and Puma to create this stunning print publication celebrating everything great about Marseille - from the city and its myriad of world-class stars, to the club's greatest eras and all the battles won. The road has been long and often troubled, but what a story it is.
