The Academy arrives in Sao Paulo

The Paris Saint-Germain Academy has arrived in Sao Paulo! Present in Rio since 2014, the Academy has set up a branch in the city of Sao Paulo, much to the delight of the city's young Rouge et Bleu fans.

On 23 and 24 September, trials were held at the Academy in Sao Paulo, attracting over 200 kids looking to experience Paris Saint-Germain's savoir-faire and meet the Academy's official coaches. Under the supervision of all the Sao Paulo Academy's technical staff, the young players were tested in three phases: overall co-ordination; technical tests consisting of passing, control and shots; and tests in game conditions to wrap it up.
