After Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain, he wants to expand his stadium

Paris Saint-Germain plans to expand its historic stadium, “Parc des Princes”, after signing Argentine Lionel Messi.

I love the Parc des Princes “but it is important to expand the stadium for our fans and the future of the club,” the club president told Europe 1 today.

The stadium is expected to be expanded from 48,500 spectators to between 55 thousand and 60,000, and it cannot be expanded any further, but the Parc de France stadium in Saint-Denis has a capacity of 81,000.

The City of Paris supports plans for the stadium, which was last renovated in 1972.

“Given the allure of Paris Saint-Germain’s fame, the fans deserve more places in an attractive stadium,” said Emmanuel Gergoire, deputy mayor of Paris on the matter.

Messi’s arrival in Paris, on a free transfer from Barcelona, ​​increased the club’s global reach, and Gregoire described this as “amazing news, not only for Paris and French football, but for sport in general”.
