PSG Set to Leave Parc des Princes for New Stadium: The End of an Era?

PSG wants its big stadium and will have to leave the Parc des Princes for that. It’s no longer a bluff, the Qatari owners have targeted four projects that they are studying with a view to moving.

After years of disagreement with Paris City Hall, PSG no longer intends to make any effort to stay at the Parc des Princes without owning it. The time has now come to prepare for a definitive departure, and this is not a bluff according to specialist journalist Abdellah Boulma. Upon their arrival in Paris, the Qatari owners invested heavily in the Porte d’Auteuil enclosure, in order to expand it to its maximum capacity, to increase the number of VIP seats or boxes in order to generate more income. . But this is not enough for Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, who wanted very large-scale work to increase it to 60,000 places. On condition of owning it, so as not to invest tens of millions of euros in work without having the benefit in the long term. But the Paris City Hall, via Anne Hidalgo, made it known that the Parc des Princes was an untouchable monument of the French capital, and that it was impossible to sell it.

La fin du grand bluff

Result, after 18 months of arguments via the media, PSG made a big decision. Several steps were taken, but sometimes it was a bluff, like when QSI announced that it wanted to participate in the call for tenders to be tenant and manager of the Stade de France, before being forgotten. On the other hand, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi is working well with the Ile-de-France region to find a place to build a new stadium, which will necessarily be flamboyant, but also necessarily much further from the capital. Nevertheless, the project is launched and there is no question of turning back, according to Abdellah Boulma.

« The decision to leave the Parc des Princes is final – it’s not a bluff. Of the twenty sites explored for the construction of the new 65,000-seat stadium, at least 4 candidates were the subject of more in-depth exploration. The Park could be retained to host various sporting/cultural events or even PSG women’s or youth teams », Delivered the journalist. An announcement which therefore sounds, in the medium term, like the end of the Parc des Princes for the Paris SG first team, which would necessarily be a slap in the face for the Paris City Hall, but also for all Parisian supporters for whom their club stands must necessarily be at the Parc des Princes. But Nasser Al-Khelaïfi necessarily has a well-rehearsed speech, such that the disagreement with the municipality prevents him from staying, and that many major European clubs have relocated their new stadium far from the city center to make it a more modern and bigger.
