The site will host men’s football teams, as well as handball. The PSG Association, and its 900 licensees, remains based in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, where the women’s section will be sent to. The ambition presented by the chairman of PSG is to make it one of the best training and learning centres in the world.
It will serve as the new cultural and sports facility of the western Paris region which will host the Racing 92. This amphitheatre designed by the architect Christian de Portzamparc will receive 32,000 spectators in stadium mode and 40,000 in concert, performance or congress mode from September 2017. 160 million euros were invested by the Hauts-de-Seine Département.
The third most publicised sport event, after the World Cup and the Olympic Games, the Ryder Cup will be held for the first time in France in 2018, at the National Golf Course
of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. With forecasts of 80,000 spectators per day, the event will showcase the western Paris region as a golf destination to contend with in Europe.
