PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN DEDICATES ITS 9TH FRENCH CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE TO HEALTHCARE WORKERS AND EVERYDAY HEROES
Following today’s decision of the French Professional Football League (LFP) to end the 2019-2020 season, the Ligue 1 title has been awarded to Paris Saint-Germain. This 9th league championship title in the club’s history is dedicated by Paris Saint-Germain to all healthcare staff and to the thousands of front-line professionals working every day to keep the country running.
Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Paris Saint-Germain Chairman and CEO, said: "We would like to dedicate this 2019-2020 Ligue 1 title to healthcare staff and to all the everyday heroes on the front line whose commitment and self-sacrifice over many weeks have earned our deepest admiration.
We understand, respect and support the decisions taken by the French Government to end the championship. Health, as the government has always said, must be everyone’s priority.
I would like to thank the players, the coach, the technical and medical staff as well as all the club’s employees for their tremendous work. This trophy is a reward for their hard work every day.
In these difficult times, I hope that this trophy will bring a little happiness and hope to all our supporters, and I am grateful to them for their unwavering support which helps drive Paris Saint-Germain forward.
I would also like to also thank all our partners for their loyalty throughout, and I look forward to being able to celebrate this title with all the PSG family when the conditions allow.”
