No Parc des Princes expansion until after 2024 Olympics

No Parc des Princes expansion until after 2024 Olympics

Wednesday 18th August 2021

Paris St Germain will be unable to expand the Parc des Princes until after the 2024 Olympic Games.

The announcement comes after the French Ligue 1 giants secured the signing of Lionel Messi from Barcelona, which has led to an increase in demand for tickets.

Despite being one of France's most successful football teams, PSG's stadium currently has a modest capacity of around 48,500 putting it xth on the list of the biggest stadiums in Europe. It is only the 4th largest club stadium in France, with Marseille (67,000), Lyon (59,000) and Lille (50,000) all able to welcome more fans.

However, PSG's plans to increase the capacity at the Parc des Princes will have to wait until after the Paris Olympics in 2024 where the stadium is due to host the finals of both the men's and women's football tournaments.
