Parc des Princes
Focus on a stadium that has been attracting the attention of all the world’s observers for the past ten years and the renewal of its host club. The Parc des Princes was inaugurated in 1972, in its current configuration. However, it has undergone many waves of renovation/reconstruction, and its very first stones actually date back to 1897! It neither had the vocation nor the appearance of today, but this makes it one of the oldest stadiums in the country and in the world.
Paris Saint Germain only took up residence in the “Parc” in 1974. It takes its name from the place where it is located, which at the time was a natural area for walking and relaxation very popular with the Parisian nobility and bourgeoisie, before any sports facilities were built on the site.
Until 1998 and the inauguration of the Stade de France, the Parc des Princes was the largest stadium in the country. Today it ranks fifth. Currently, the Park is shining on the football planet thanks to the revival of the Paris Saint Germain in the early 2010’s. The club has moved into another dimension thanks to Qatari investments, and PSG is now crushing all competition in the domestic league. But the club is looking further ahead and is aiming for the first European title in its history. To achieve this, it attracts some of the best footballers in the world every season. Year after year, PSG seems to be more cut out than ever. Perhaps this one will be the right one…
In the stands, relations between the club and its ultra supporters have not always been good. The fault lies with numerous quarrels leading to the banning of ultras groups from the stadium in 2010. After 6 years of demonstrations and negotiations, the ultras finally find the Parc des Princes. It is the atmosphere of the stadium which is improved, with a lot of tifo, pyro and singing activity in the bends. The Park regains its voice and its popular side, which was sorely lacking during the years when the Ultras were banned from the stadium. Since then, the activity and discipline of the Parisian Ultras is regularly praised on the occasion of the PSG’s European trips. All’s well that ends well, to the delight of the fans of atmosphere in the stadiums that we are. So, what are you waiting for to embark on the next football trip to Paris?
