OUR VISION AND ETHOS
Founded in 2005, The Paris Saint-Germain Academy symbolizes Paris Saint-Germain’s commitment to youth development and education.
Sporting achievement, academic success and personal fulfilment. These are the values at the heart of the Paris Saint-Germain Academy, as it symbolises Paris Saint Germain’s commitment to youth development, both on a sporting and educational level.
At the Paris Saint-Germain Academy, we share a vision of enhancing soccer experiences to children. The Paris Saint-Germain Academy welcomes children aged from 4 to 16 years old and from all skill levels. Our young Academy players will learn to play with Paris Saint-Germain’s values and will be taught to be proud of their club, respect their teammates, their opponents and the referee. They are also committed to passing on the culture and identity of Paris Saint-Germain.
The Paris Saint-Germain Academy is committed to passing on the Club’s philosophy and values of possession-based football, enjoyment, education and personal balance. All of the young boys and girls joining us at the Paris Saint-Germain Academy will have the unique opportunity to play soccer, make new friends and develop their skills in a fun and relaxed environment.
Pedro Miguel Pauleta, emblematic Paris Saint-Germain striker between 2003 and 2008, became the official ambassador of the Paris Saint-Germain Academy in December 2013.
His strong emotional bond and his history with the club make him the perfect ambassador to accompany the Academy’s development in France and abroad.
“The Paris Saint Germain Academy offers its players the possibility to train and play in the best possible conditions, thanks notably to the club’s savoir-faire, recognized around the world for its successful youth development. It is an immense honour and a great pleasure to become the official ambassador for the Paris Saint Germain Academy to share with young players all over the world, what I experienced over so many years in this wonderful club.”
