The 2011–12 season of Olympique de Marseille (OM) was the club's 62nd season in the Ligue 1. They participated in five competitions Ligue 1, UEFA Champions League, Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and the Trophée des Champions, winning the last two.

Key Events[edit]

Marseille won the 2011 Trophée des champions.
  • 21 May 2011: After months of speculation, Taye Taiwo joined Milan on a free transfer.
  • 19 June 2011: Left-back Jérémy Morel joined OM from Lorient for a fee of €2.5 million.
  • 29 June 2011: after the loss of Taye Taiwo, OM picked up Nicolas N'Koulou from Monaco for a reported €3.5 million.
  • 4 July 2011: Defensive midfielder Alou Diarra joined for an undisclosed fee from Bordeaux. Diarra put pen to paper on a three-year deal.
  • 21 July 2011: Argentine International left-back Gabriel Heinze left for Serie A club Roma. Roma picked up Heinze on a free transfer and signed him to a what is believed to be a one-year contract.
  • 27 July 2011: In what turned out to be a nine-goal thriller, Marseille beat out competition Lille to win the 2011 Trophée des Champions 5–4. The game ended with two very late penalties converted by André Ayew. This is now the second year in a row that Marseille have won the Trophy.
