Background on Paris Saint-Germain's women's team
The Paris Saint-Germain women's team was created in 1971, one year after the club was founded. In the 50th anniversary of the club's foundation, the team won the French league title for the first time in its history. For several years, the club has also graced the elite of the European game, reaching the final of the Champions League in 2015 and 2017 and the semi-finals in 2020 and 2021.
The team is made up of talented players representing nine different nations, including French internationals Marie-Antoinette Katoto, Kadidiatou Diani and Grace Geyoro, Germany's Sarah Dabritz and Canadian Olympic gold-medallist Stéphanie Labbé. This season, six first-team players rose through the ranks from the club's academy.
Since the club's purchase by QSI in 2011, Paris Saint-Germain has become one of the best clubs in the world and among the biggest global sporting brands. Popular with the young generation, the club boasts a style that is unique, youthful, Parisian and modern, winning over more and more fans across the planet.
The Paris Saint-Germain women's team is part of that same dynamic and an essential component of Paris Saint-Germain's transformation as a brand, contributing to the club's development overseas. Most notably, the team embarked on a tour of Louisville, Kentucky (USA), this summer.
The women's team is also closely involved with the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation, which has been developing large-scale programmes to help children in the Ile-de-France region, France and around the world for the last 21 years.
