Paris Saint-Germain Football Club (French pronunciation: ​[paʁi sɛ̃ ʒɛʁmɛ̃]), commonly known as Paris Saint-Germain, Paris SG, or simply PSG, is a French women's professional association football club founded in 1971, and based in the city of Paris in France. The club is the women's department of the men's football club Paris Saint-Germain Football Club.[1]

PSG play in the highest tier of French football, the Division 1 Féminine.[1] Since the women's team does not possess a dedicated home ground, Les Rouge-et-Bleu have played some of its home games in several other venues along the years.[2][3] These include the Stade Municipal Georges Lefèvre, the Stade Sébastien Charléty, the Stade Jean-Bouin and the Parc des Princes.[1][2][3][4]

Currently, Les Parisiennes train at the Centre Sports et Loisirs de la Banque de France de Bougival (CSLBF de Bougival) and play its home matches in the 20,000-capacity Stade Jean-Bouin multi-purpose stadium, located across the street from the much larger Parc des Princes, home to PSG's male football section.[5]

Domestically, PSG have won two French Cups as well as one Division 2 title.[6][7] In international club football, the Parisian side reached the UEFA Women's Champions League final in 2015 and 2017.[8][9] In friendly competitions, the club have won the Gipuzkoa Elite Cup once.[10]

History[edit]

Rise to Division 1 (1971–2001)[edit]

The female section of Paris Saint-Germain Football Club was born in the summer of 1971 following the green light given by the French Football Federation (FFF) to women's football.[11] The club signed 33 women for the 1971–72 season and the newly formed team began life from the bottom of the football pyramid.[1][11]

Eight years after its foundation, PSG still had not played in the elite. In turn, the team played in the Paris Women's Championship with the likes of RC Joinville and VGA Saint-Maur.[1]Les Parisiennes finished runners-up in 1972, their best result. PSG does not take part in the first five editions of the Division 1 Féminine (1974–1979), preferring to continue life in the Paris Women's Championship.[11]

Les Parisiennes finally joined the Division 1 at the end of the 1978–1979 season.[1] PSG was promoted to the top-flight after the Division 1 went from 20 to 48 teams for the 1979–1980 season.[11] However, three seasons later, the capital club was relegated to the Division 2 Féminine. PSG would bounce between divisions throughout the next 19 years.[1]

After a 1999–2000 season in which PSG dramatically missed promotion to the Division 1 due to a heavy defeat in the last match against SC Schiltigheim (0–3), Les Rouge-et-Bleu made amends the following season. Coached by Sébastien Thierry and guided by young defender Laura Georges, the team won 16 out of 18 games played in Group A and was promoted to the top tier. Additionally, PSG won the 2000–01 Division 2 title by defeating Group C leader Tours (2–1). Since then, Paris SG have never been relegated from Division 1.[1]

First major title (2001–2010)[edit]

Under manager Cyril Combettes, PSG remained without major problems among the elite without ever challenging the top teams.[11] In the summer of 2005, Sabrina Delannoy and Laure Boulleau, two of PSG's most iconic players, arrived to the club from the CNFE Clairefontaine. Together, Delannoy and Boulleau played more than 400 matches with Paris. The defending duo experienced everything with the capital side: relegation battles, mid-table finishes and title races.[1]

At the end of March 2007, Cyril Combettes resigned due to relationship problems with the players.[11] Eric Leroy replaced him and signed striker Marie-Laure Delie to PSG for the 2007–08 season.[1][11] Despite a difficult start, a heavy 1–5 defeat to Montpellier in the first match, the season was a success.[1] Under Leroy's direction, the team finished in fifth place and reached the Coupe de France Féminine final for the first time in their history, losing against Olympique Lyonnais at the Stade de France.[1][11] The 2008–2009 season, however, was disappointing and Éric Leroy ceded his coaching position to the duo of Camille Vaz and Karine Noilhan in June 2009.[11]

PSG recruited French internationals Élise Bussaglia, Julie Soyer and Jessica Houara during the summer of 2009.[11] The club celebrated 38 years of existence by hosting the Parisian derby against Paris FC at the Parc des Princes on 18 October 2009. Usually reserved for the men's team, it was the women's first match at Le Parc in their history. In front of 5,892 spectators, PSG defeated Paris FC 1–0 thanks to an early goal from Camille Abily.[1]Les Rouge-et-Bleu ended the 2009–10 season in third place, a first for them on the podium, and reached their second French Cup final.[1]

Les Parisiennes met defending champions Montpellier at the Stade Robert Bobin in the 2009–10 edition. Ingrid Boyeldieu opened the scoring in the first half, before the capital side added four more after half time for a final 5–0 scoreline. It was the club's maiden major title and its first since the D2 title. Moreover, PSG achieved the men's and women's double of the French Cup, with the boys having won the 2010 Coupe de France Final against Monaco (0–1).[1] Emblematic club striker Ingrid Boyeldieu would retire from football at the end of the season.[11]

Power struggle with Lyon (2010–)[edit]

The 2010–11 season marked a turning point for the women's team. In the summer, Brazilian star Kátia joined on free signing from Lyon. Then, PSG finished league runners-up and qualified for UEFA Women's Champions League for the first time in their history, after defeating second-placed Montpellier in the final match of the season. Club captain Sabrina Delannoy scored the winning penalty, whistled in stoppage time. And finally, Élise Bussaglia was named Division 1 Féminine Player of the Season.[11]

PSG would then finish league runners-up between 2013 and 2016. The ladies also lost the French Cup final in 2013–14 and the 2015 UEFA Women's Champions League Final to 1. FFC Frankfurt.[1][12]
