Chicago “Sister Cities” Soccer Tournament features Paris Saint-Germain

This event will take place this week, featuring PSG for the first time in North America….

…Famed Parisian club Paris Saint-Germain, one of the most decorated outfits in French soccer, has won two Ligue 1 titles, seven Coupes de France, a record three Coupes de la Ligue and two Trophées des Champions. In addition to their domestic triumphs, PSG won the 1996 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. Les Parisiens feature French World Cup finalist and Champions League winner (Real Madrid) midfielder Claude Makélélé along with former Barcelona striker Ludovic Giuly and former France national team goalkeeper Grégory Coupet.

“Paris Saint-Germain Football Club is delighted to participate in its first soccer tournament in the United States. PSG is privileged and honored to represent the City of Paris in the Chicago Sister Cities International Cup,” said Paris Saint-Germain President Robin Leproux. “We expect that our participation in this tournament will improve PSG’s recognition in North America and increase our US fan base. We are looking forward to the support of the large French community living in the Chicago area for our games at Toyota Park….”
