Saint-Germain-en-Laye: The Birthplace of PSG Club

The Paris Saint-Germain club was created in 1970 through the association of approximately 20,000 Parisian sports fans, who wished to create a great football club in Paris, and the Saint-Germain's Stadium, which offered high quality facilities near Paris. Saint-Germain's premier team had just won its place in the National, which was the equivalent of the 3rd division today. In this way, Saint-Germain's football team served as the basis for the creation of the current professional section.


PSG Symbols

The colours of the Parisian jersey, represented on the club's coat of arms, bear witness to this union. The colour red of the Eiffel Tower against the blue background are the two colours of the city of Paris, and are references to La Fayette and Jean-Sylvain Bailly (two key figures of the 1789 French Revolution). The colour white is an allusion to Saint-Germain-en-Laye's coat of arms, and is also the colour of royalty. The cradle and fleur-de-lis refer to Louis XIV's birth in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in 1638.
Both the youth and female teams are regularly among the best at the regional and national levels. The PSG Training Centre regularly produces young professional athletes who achieve the highest levels, while preparing them for their future placement.
