Paris Saint-Germain football club was created in 1970 and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020. Since QSI’s purchase of the club in 2011, it has transformed to become one of the top football clubs and global sports brands in the world. The club has since then won 27 trophies in only ten years, 43 in its history, becoming the most successful football club in France. Paris Saint-Germain has attracted many great players including Ronaldinho, Beckham, Ibrahimovic, and currently Neymar Jr and Mbappé, both ranked amongst the top players in the world. The international popularity of the club never stops growing. It is now one of the most followed clubs in the world, expanding from zero to a community over 100 million social media followers in just ten years. The pioneering sports club which now includes men’s football, women’s football, handball, and judo, added esports in 2016. Giving back to the community is fundamental to the club which has drastically increased the capacity of its foundation to develop large programs for underprivileged youths.
