50 years of Paris Saint-Germain

French club Paris Saint-Germain has crossed 50 years of legacy this week. The club was founded 12th of August 1970 after the merger of Paris Football Club and Stade Saint-Germain. PSG made an immediate impact by winning the Ligue 2 title in their first season and gaining promotion to Ligue 1.

Sadly, their momentum was soon stopped as the club split in 1972. Paris FC remained in Ligue 1, while PSG was administratively relegated to Division 3. PSG got their revenge in 1974 when they returned to Ligue 1 and Paris FC slipped into the division below.

PSG won their first major honour, the French Cup, in 1982, and their maiden Ligue 1 title in 1986. 1990 was among the most successful periods in PSG’s history. They claimed their 2nd league title, 3 French Cups, 2 League Cups, 2 French Super Cups, and, most importantly, the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1996.

After suffering a decline in fortunes during the 2000s, the club has enjoyed a revival since 2011 with increased financial backing. The club has won 7 league titles in the last 10 years. It shows their complete domination in their domestic league.

The club has also seen some legends of this game playing for them. Big names like Ronaldinho, David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has played in their jersey.

In 2017 they bought Brazilian sensation Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior in a world record fee of €223m from Barcelona. PSG is now a European giant with so many talented players in the team in likes of Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler, and many more.

This year they are in the semi-final of Champions League and hope to win their first-ever European highest club honour in the memory of club’s 50th anniversary.
