PSG are a relatively young football club compared to other major teams in Europe. The Parisian club form just half a century ago. In their short time as a football club, Paris Saint-Germain have achieved remarkable success winning a number Ligue 1 titles, French Cups, and League Cups. Paris Saint-Germain are one of just two French football clubs to win a European trophy.
The French side won the 1996 Cup Winners' Cup. Paris Saint-Germain play one of the world’s great football derbies against Marseille. The game is referred to as "Le Classique" and is a popular match for punters to wager on each year.
Paris did not have an elite football club prior to 1970. At the turn of the decade, Paris’s lack of a top-level football club changed as a group of businessmen merged Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain into one football club known as Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG immediately drew the attention and support of Parisians. In 1972, the club earned promotion to Ligue 1 and made their home the Parc des Princes. By the 1980s, the Paris side were at the top of the French football game. The club won their first major trophies claiming back-to-back French Cups in 1982 and 1983. In 1986, Paris Saint-Germain won their first Ligue 1 title.
In 1991, Canal+ bought the club and invested heavily. Trophies flooded in following the new investment with a league title, three French Cups, and the 1996 Cup Winners’ Cup trophy. Unfortunately, just as Paris Saint-Germain were at the top of the domestic game, they hit a major decline. Financial and personnel mismanagement saw the club decrease in the 2000s until the Qatar Sports Investment group bought the team.
Since QSI bought Paris Saint-Germain, they have spent more than €1.3 billion on players. Thanks to the large spend, Paris Saint-Germain have won domestic silverware as seven titles have been won since QSI’s takeover. Unfortunately, European cups have not been won by the club as yet. That could change this season.

Paris Saint-Germain have two of the best players in the world currently. Neymar was signed for €222 million from Barcelona and has been an incredible player since arriving despite being troubled with injuries throughout his time in the French capital.
Kylian Mbappe is PSG's other top star. The young Frenchman joined the club for €180m from Monaco in 2018 following a year-long loan. Mbappe is arguably more important to Paris Saint-Germain than Neymar has been since the duo arrived. He not only steps up in important games, but Mbappe is consistently on the pitch.
