PSG's rise to the summit of Ligue 1 began with star signing Zlatan Ibrahimović in 2012.

Paris Saint-Germain Football Club is a French professional association football club based in Paris, whose first team play in the highest tier of French football, the Ligue 1. The team was formed in 1970 by the merger of Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain.[1]

Paris SG has played 46 seasons, all of which have been spent within the French football league system. The club has contested the Ligue 1 on 43 occasions, winning the competition 6 times.[2] Paris have never been relegated from Ligue 1.[3] PSG's 43 successive Ligue 1 seasons between 1974 and 2016 is soon to become a league record. The capital side's worst Ligue 1 finish to date is 16th (in 1971–72 and 2007–08).[2]

The 2015–16 season was PSG's best in terms of league performance: the team were only beaten twice (club record),[2] won 30 out of 38 games (national record),[4] and collectively scored 102 goals (club record).[2] Zlatan Ibrahimović holds the record for most goals with PSG during a single campaign; he scored 50 goals in 51 matches during the 2015–16 season (national record).[4]

Background[edit]

Towards the end of the 1960s, an ambitious group of businessmen decided to create a major club in the French capital.[5] After a petition was signed by 20,000 people, Paris Saint-Germain Football Club were founded on 12 August 1970 with the merger of Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain (the latter team having existed since 1904). PSG are today the city's largest club by far.[6]

The Saint-Germain-en-Laye-based first team allowed the brand new Paris Saint-Germain to start their career in Ligue 2 for the 1970–71 campaign.[1] PSG made an immediate impact both on and off the pitch. The club built a substantial fanbase,[5] won the Ligue 2 title and celebrated their first birthday in Ligue 1. The 1971–72 term ended with an honourable 16th-placed finish.[1] PSG have never formally been relegated from Ligue 1. However, in 1972 the club split into two.[3] The professional arm of the club joined CA Montreuil and continued life in the top-flight under the name of Paris FC,[1] while PSG assumed amateur status and had to restart in Division 3.[3]

PSG finished second in their group and when first-placed Quevilly balked at promotion, the capital club moved up to Ligue 2 in 1973. During 1973–74, Les Parisiens were already shining in the Coupe de France by reaching the quarter-finals. Even better was the second-placed league finish which saw PSG take on Valenciennes in a play-off tie for promotion to the premier division. Beaten 2–1 away, PSG won 4–2 at the Parc des Princes on 4 June 1974 and were promoted to Ligue 1, ironically, the same year that Paris FC were relegated. Since then, PSG have always played in the French first division.[1]

PSG have always represented both Paris and nearby Saint-Germain-en-Laye.[7] Paris SG play their games in Paris at the Parc des Princes.[8] However, the Camp des Loges (the club's training complex since 1970) is located in Saint-Germain-en-Laye.[9] PSG spent their formative years using the Stade Municipal Georges Lefèvre,[8] located in front of the Camp des Loges,[10] before moving into the Parc des Princes in 1974.[5]
