Fair play for the offer Philippe. Much appreciated. I'm sure you will get many an inquiry over the next 2 weeks about the game and Marseille itself.
Cheers man.

Hi King Brian Boru,
I have no idea about taxis.
But I think the best solution could be the shuttle from Saint Charles train station to the airport.

An other way is to book an Uber.
But if you do want a taxi, I can ask to my sister in law, she works at Marseille Tourist office.
Cheers

Hi Phillippe, what would be the quickest way to Aix after the game? Are Ubers easily available? Many thanks.

I've booked a return bus trip from airport to St Charles and its sixteen quid for a 25-40 minute spin each way. last buses back from St Charles to airport are 11:50 and 00:50. Think its the L91 bus.

Book at the link Philippe gave.

Hi tofblue,
You will be able to find a Uber to go to Aix.
But be carefull, I think the price will be between 100 and 150 euros.

@Brianborublue: the shuttle from Saint Charles to the airport doesn't go to Aix
It is not the same direction

Not easy to park at all near the stadium
I always advise to use the underground

Hi Philippe, I will be landing in Marseilles airport at 13.35 on Saturday. Is it best to get a bus to the stadium? Should I reserve / book tickets in advance? I will be flying out of Marseille at 23.40 Satusday so should I buy a return ticket? Merci!

Hello
Your schedule is very confortable. My advice is to take a bus at the airport, to St Charles train station (about 15 € return, every 15 mn). Walk to the Vieux Port (20mn) to join the rugby atmosphere on the Quai Rive Neuve side (left hand side when arriving at the port). The stadium is about 3 km away, follow the crowd or take the metro or a tram if you are lazy. Welcome, enjoy your time in our city

Hi,
yes indeed, the best solution is to take the airport shuttle.
I do advise you the book tickets in advance
