Paris SG to stay at Parc des Princes

Paris city council said that capital club Paris SG “wish to remain at a totally renovated Parc des Princes for the long term”.

The statement, released by the municipal authorities – who own the stadium – said that the Ligue 1 runners-up wish to remain in a stadium that “corresponds to the highest international standards and the sporting ambitions of the club”.

Work will begin in the coming months,” the statement added, with the city council and PSG agreeing to continue talks over the best way to go about increasing the capacity of the stadium, which presently holds 47,428 fans.

The current capacity is not enough to satisfy the wishes of the club’s Qatari owners as they seek to turn PSG into a major player in Europe.
