The Marie de Paris reaches out to PSG: “We want to resume the dialogue”

“In reality, PSG is almost the owner of the Park with a very long concession right, but the mayor wants the stadium to remain an important heritage for Parisians, Emmanuel Grégoire said again on Tuesday. Work could begin immediately after the Paris Olympics 2024.”

And Anne Hidalgo’s deputy continues: “If we manage to agree. We want to make them proposals that would put them as much in comfort as if they were owners with a very long concession. We have contacts with the PSG teams but not with the president and we suspect that it is he who decides. We want to resume the dialogue. There is a major disagreement on the Park. Afterwards it is very complicated to estimate the value of the Parc des Princes because if we ask 15 experts there will be 15 different prices. And the price will be supervised by Bercy and the Paris council will validate or not an assignment so we cannot agree on a price by patting yourself on the back. Today the rental of the park is 1 million euros in the fixed part and 1 or 2 million in the variable part. So it is modest compared to OM or LOSC. This contract binds them until 2043.”
