History
• Towards the end of the 1960s, an ambitious group of businessmen decided to create a major club in the French capital. They chose to merge their virtual side, Paris FC, with Stade Saint-Germain after the team from Saint-Germain-en-Laye, 15km west of Paris, won promotion to Ligue 2. The merger was ratified by the French Football Federation and the new outfit, Paris-Saint-Germain FC, came into being on 27 August 1970.

• PSG made an immediate impact both on and off the pitch, building a substantial fanbase and winning promotion in their first season. Their momentum was soon checked, however, and the club split in 1972,  Paris FC remaining in the top flight and PSG demoted to the third tier. Two seasons later PSG returned to Ligue 1, moving into the Parc des Princes in 1974.

• The club's trophy cabinet welcomed its first major silverware in the shape of the French Cup in 1981/82 as PSG defeated AS Saint-Étienne on penalties in the final. Four years later coach Gérard Houllier led the team to their maiden league success, Safet Sušić pulling the strings in midfield.

• An even brighter era then dawned when broadcasters Canal+ took over in 1991. Although just one more Ligue 1 crown was added in the following decade, PSG's crowning glory came with triumph in the 1996 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup final, Bruno N'Gotty hitting the only goal as SK Rapid Wien were defeated 1-0. A year later, Les Rouge et Bleu finished runners-up to FC Barcelona in the same competition.

• Cup successes notwithstanding, the early 2000s were tough for PSG, who flirted with relegation on occasion as a combination of high expectations and intense media pressure took their toll. However, the arrival of new investors in 2011, the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti later that year and a flurry of big-money signings brought about the Ligue 1 title in 2012/13.
