Paris Saint-Germain was founded in 1970 and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020. Since its takeover by QSI in 2011, Paris Saint-Germain has gone on to become one of the world’s top football clubs and sports brands.
The club has won 29 trophies in the last 11 years and 47 since its foundation, making it the most successful in France. It has attracted many great players over the years, including Ronaldinho, Beckham and Ibrahimovic, and latterly Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappé, three of the best players in the world today. The club’s international popularity knows no bounds.
In the last ten years, its community of social media followers has grown from zero toalmost190 million and is now one of the largest in football. A forward-thinking club, Paris Saint-Germain added an eSports team to its men’s football, women’s football, handball, and judo teams in 2016. Committed to giving something back to the community, the club has significantly increased funding for its Foundation with the aim of developing far-reaching programmes for disadvantaged young people.
