Deputy of Paris City Hall seeks to block sale of Parc des Princes to PSG

After abandoning the track leading to the Stade de France, Paris Saint-Germain is now working on new projects, including a new arena with a capacity of 70,000 seats. RMC Sport even announced yesterday that the City of Paris was ready to re-establish a dialogue with the Parisian management to discuss the possibility of buying the Parc des Princes, in part due to the recent arrival of the American shareholder Arctos last month. However, a deputy mayor of the capital had a different stance this Friday morning.

Speaking on the morning show of SudRadio, David Belliard, deputy mayor of Paris in charge of public space transformation and mobility, does not want to hand over the Parisian arena to the reigning French champions: “Yes, it would be a problem for me if Paris were to sell the Parc des Princes to Qatar, or in any case, to the sale of the Parc des Princes. I would oppose any sale. (…) It is the responsibility of PSG to carry out the work. PSG, whose majority shareholder is Qatar, has enough means to invest in this mythical park that is the Parc des Princes.”
