It has been ten years since QSI took over PSG. And they have come a very long way since then, from being a relatively unknown club to a global brand.
They are now one of the richest football clubs in the world, and have expanded their reach to more than the sport as well. And that has resulted in them becoming one of the top clubs in the continent as well.
A look back at the ten years of QSI in charge of PSG
The French club have attracted some of the best players in the world after becoming one of the most financially well-off clubs in the world. It started with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva joining the club in the 2010s.
And more recently, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi have joined the club alongside Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma. As a result, their ability to attract some of the best players in the world is unquestionable.
But, they have been able to expand the club off the pitch as well. Megastores have opened across the world in several locations like Doha, Tokyo and Los Angeles. Their annual shirt sales figures have also risen from 50,000 to well over a million.
The downside is that the loyal long-term followers are starting to believe that the club is losing its DNA. This is mainly because of the star power at the club, which is becoming the main reason for fans attending games.
But, despite this, PSG has grown into one of the best football teams in the world, among Europe’s best.
