PSG to leave Parc des Princes!


The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, announced on Saturday that the city won't be selling the Parc des Princes to PSG. The news means that Paris Saint-Germain will most probably leave the stadium once they have found a new place to stage their games, ahead of building a new arena of their own.

PSG will therefore play football away from the stadium that has been their home ground since the club was born all the way back in 1970, accurately pointed out Julien Laurens writing about this news for ESPN with the journalist nearly confirming PSG's departure from the Parc.

After years of negotiating with the City of Paris, PSG and the mayor of the town couldn't reach an agreement through the last year and the worst possible news for all parties involved saw the light of day on Saturday. The mayor of Paris won't sell the place to PSG.

Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, said that "the Parc is not for sale," adding that hers is "a firm and definitive position." She went on to say that "the Parc des Princes is not for sale, it's that clear, and it will not be sold."

PSG will leave the Parc des Princes, built and use new stadium for the first time since 1970

Nasser Al-Khelaifi, PSG's president, has threatened to leave the Parc des Princes in the recent past and took advantage of the Qatar World Cup giving him a large stage to voice his thoughts about the matter.

Trying to soften the blow, Hidalgo said that she "of course, supports PSG in its desire and need for renovation, increased capacity, and modernization of the Parc." Bullshit, I call that. And bullshit, NAK thinks that is, too.

Le Parisien has all of the coverage, quotes, and information you need. We're just reporting the main thing here: PSG is leaving the Parc, so sit tight and rest assured they will do it. And that will most probably happen sooner rather than later.

Of course, building a new stadium from the ground takes years, and even moving to another, already-built and available arena would still take some time.

That said, it is not that PSG will be lacking suitors offering places, real estate, and all of the help they can provide. It took virtually no time for Karl Olive, French deputy of the Yvelines department inside the Ile-de-France region, to offer Poissy as a possible location for PSG's relocation.

This might end in nothing, but unless the Parisian mayor changes her stance or re-election brings new parameters to the equation you can start embracing a new Qatar-built stadium becoming the home of the next iteration of PSG.
