UEFA threatens PSG with a potential ban from the Champions League


Turns out UEFA members keep pushing their agendas to make Paris Saint-Germain's life impossible. Ever since the arrival of Qatar in the French capital, Paris has endured more than a close exploration of their yearly--if not daily--affairs and that might cause PSG trouble ahead of next season more than any time before.

UEFA has kept a very detailed track record of the Parisian accounts of late, even more considering that last season the club closed the year with a loss of €370m. That, under the current Financial Fair Play rules, meant that PSG were fined €65m as did so many other clubs around the continent.

The latest information revealed that PSG is going to get forced to resolve and fix their accounting situation during the next three seasons if they don't want to deal with very serious sanctions by the governing UEFA body in the future.

According to L'Equipe, UEFA is not planning on hammering PSG with a sanction at the end of the 2022-23 financial year, saying that Paris Saint-Germain are only bound to receive a "fine" without the "risk of additional sanctions at the end of the season."

PSG could get banned from the Champions League in future seasons

This news is very important for the future of PSG in European competitions, mind you, as any further sanctions could have meant PSG would have been "limited to register only 23 players compared to the maximum of 25 players," and "the ban on the inclusion of new players in UEFA club competitions“ if said players arrive in future transfer windows.

Even if Paris Saint-Germain have dodged this bullet, it is very clear that UEFA is clearly in a commanding position here and will demand solutions to the economic faults of PSG, so the French club better fix their accounts if they don't want to endure any sanctions ahead of the 2024-25 campaign.

L'Equipe also informs that the ultimate sanctions, in the event of PSG not doing anything to sanitize their economy, could lead to an"exclusion from the next UEFA club competition for which the club qualifies.“

That might mean, obviously, an exclusion from the 2024-25 edition of the Champions League if the sanctions are applied at the end of last season, assuming PSG finishes the next Ligue 1 season in a UCL-qualifying position.
