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 were found guilty of match fixing and suffered from scandalous financial irregularities, which resulted in relegation from the top flight in 1994, and the club has not won a major trophy since.
Nonetheless, the team is considered the most-supported club in France and regularly fill their imposing home of the Stade VÃ©lodrome, which seats 60,013. Their vast fan base continues to show unwavering and impressive loyalty to the club, despite many mediocre seasons since their return to the top flight. The fans continue to hope that Marseille will regain its former glory. Marseille also has the largest number of supporters associations outside its region in France.
The club's motto is Droit Au But, French for "Straight to the Goal".
