PSG's team during the 2008–09 season.

Paris Saint-Germain Football Club is a French professional association football club founded in 1970, and based in the city of Paris in France. The club's first team play in the highest tier of French football, the Ligue 1.[1]

Since its inception, Paris SG have played 48 seasons, all of which have been spent within the first three levels of the French football league system (Ligue 1, Ligue 2 and Division 3).[2]

The Parisians hold the record for most consecutive seasons in top-flight (they have played 45 seasons in Ligue 1 since 1974),[3] and have won the competition seven times.[2] PSG have never been relegated from Ligue 1.[4] The club's worst Ligue 1 finish to date is 16th, their placing at the end of the 1971–72 and 2007–08 seasons.[2]

The 2015–16 season was the club's best to date. PSG won all four domestic titles (Ligue 1, Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and Trophée des Champions) and reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.[2] In Ligue 1, the capital club finished with 96 points (national record),[5] while Zlatan Ibrahimović scored 50 goals in all competitions (national record).[6] However, the club's record for most goals in a season was set in 2017–18, when the capital side scored 171 goals in all competitions.[5]

Background[edit]

Towards the end of the 1960s, an ambitious group of businessmen decided to create a major club in the French capital. They chose to merge their virtual side, Paris FC, with Stade Saint-Germain after the team from Saint-Germain-en-Laye, 15km west of Paris, won promotion to Ligue 2. PSG made an immediate impact both on and off the pitch, building a substantial fanbase and winning promotion in their first season.[7]

Paris Saint-Germain have never formally been relegated. However, in 1972 the club split into two. One branch joined CA Montreuil and continued in Ligue 1 under the name of Paris FC, while PSG assumed amateur status and had to restart in Division 3. PSG returned to Ligue 1 in 1973–74 and have never looked back since.[4] PSG are today the city's largest club by far,[8] as well as the most successful French club in history in terms of trophies won, with 38.[1][2]

PSG have always represented both Paris and nearby Saint-Germain-en-Laye.[9] Paris SG play their games in Paris at the Parc des Princes.[10] However, the Camp des Loges (the club's training complex since 1970) is located in Saint-Germain-en-Laye.[11] PSG spent their formative years using the Stade Municipal Georges Lefèvre,[10] located in front of the Camp des Loges,[12] before moving into the Parc des Princes in 1974.[7]
