For those who didn't get the chance to attend, here's a quick recap of the "Noël à la folie" (Crazy Christmas) event that took place just before the OM - Troyes match on Wednesday 20 December 2017.

Olympique Marseille supporters got the chance to celebrate Christmas at the Orange Vélodrome stadium with a special "Noël à la Folie" (Crazy Christmas) event put on by the club shortly before the Olympiens' last match of the year against Troyes.

A quick look back at this completely crazy evening.

In a stadium that was full by early evening (attendance: 38,000), despite the cold, OM's supporters got to enjoy some specially laid on and unique entertainment and events from the stands.

Eight Mother Christmases armed with T-shirt launchers gave out 1,300 free gifts (T-shirts and scarves) as part of the pre-match build up.

And it was no less than six Father Christmases from GRIMP (Groupe de Reconnaissance et d'Intervention en Milieux Périlleux), the Marseille marine fire brigade's special dangerous environments search and rescue unit, that descended from the roof of the Orange Vélodrome dressed as Christmas elves in order to give out free gifts among the large crowd in attendance.

See their dizzying descent from the Orange Vélodrome's roof on video.

Finally, and to finish with, the supporters were invited to take part in a quiz via the giant screens for the chance to win one of 10 prize packages up for grabs (signed equipment, places in the executive boxes and stands, a meal and a tour of OM's Robert Louis Dreyfus training centre, and more).
