Also hosting other huge sporting events, the Parc des Princes knows what is required to put on a major show but in recent times, the venue has largely been linked to PSG and it now holds a special place in the hearts of the Paris’ club’s supporters.
PSG Stadium History – A Journey Through Time
Built in the 19th century and originally used for cycling as a velodrome, it’s hard to imagine the legendary Parc des Princes as anything but the home of PSG.
Originally used for cycling, the growth of football and rugby in France saw the venue regularly host international events as several of the world’s leading sport sides would compete at the stadium.
With France set to host the 1938 football World Cup, major renovations were carried out at the stadium with the capacity increased massively to deal with the demand of local sport fans who were eager to watch the world’s best competitors.
With further work done in the 1970s, the stadium became home of PSG before going onto host a number of significant football matches. The 1981 European Cup final between Liverpool and Real Madrid took place at the Parc des Princes as well as the final of Euro 1984.
With France hosting the 1998 World Cup, a new stadium, the Stade de France, was built in Paris but that didn’t prevent the Parc des Princes from being used as one of the memorable tournament’s stadiums.
Today, with PSG recognised as one of Europe’s premier teams, the stadium is fitting of such a team and there are currently plans to expand the ground lifting the capacity to 60,000.
PSG Stadium Renovation – Shaping the Modern Icon
Switching identity from cycling to football and rugby, the Parc des Princes has been a focal point for French sport for over a century and with France rapidly becoming a major force in the sporting world, it required a venue worthy for their sporting prowess.
With numerous capacity increases and a focus on safety in previous redevelopments, Parc des Princes has had to move into the modern era in recent times due to PSG being one of football’s most elite clubs.
Today, the stadium is the envy of most clubs in Europe. Hospitality is a major factor in attracting high profile supporters and PSG’s investment in that area has saw them welcome several global superstars including Kim Kardashian.
The area the players get ready have also been upgraded in recent times meaning that the club now has impressive drrsssing rooms along with spacious warm up areas.
With PSG relentless in their pursuit of sporting excellence, it’s likely that further investment will be made to the Parc des Princes as it continues to be recognised as one of the world’s best stadiums.
