PSG’s ‘€250m’ training centre given green light
French soccer champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have been granted environmental and building permits to develop a new training centre that could set the Ligue 1 club back a reported €250 million (US$279.5 million).

The development, which is earmarked for the Poissy commune on the outskirts of Paris, was first scheduled for completion in 2021, subject to environmental approvals requested in January 2018. 

PSG were eventually given the green light after a public enquiry was held between 18th February and 29th March this year. The club aim to open the facility in the summer of 2022.

The centre, which will span 17 hectares and has been dubbed PSG’s very own ‘sports city’, will include 17 soccer pitches – one of which will be covered – to be used by the club’s senior and academy sides.

Located within a half-hour journey of Parc des Princes, PSG’s home stadium, the training centre will also house venues for martial arts and handball, in addition to a 3,000-seater stadium that will play host to PSG’s women’s soccer team.

Parisian architects Wilmotte & Associés have been put in charge of the project, which will be the first multi-sports venue wholly owned by PSG. 

A PSG statement read: ‘As soon as the site was chosen, the club began working with the local authorities, namely Poissy town council, the Grand Paris Seine and Oise urban community, and the Yvelines Departmental council. 

‘Discussions were initiated with the local inhabitants from 2017 onwards, in a bid to open up a dialogue, enhance the project, and form long-lasting relationships.’
