Created in 2005, the Paris Saint-Germain Academy symbolises Paris Saint-Germain's commitment to developing youngsters both in sporting and educational terms.

Aimed at boys and girls aged five to 16, the Paris Saint-Germain Academy offers a unique opportunity to all passionate football lovers to share the values of a great European club recognised the world over for its know-how and the quality of its youth development.

Each year, the Paris Saint-Germain Academy welcomes more and more children to its football schools in France and around the world, including more than 10 000 children last season.

Pedro Miguel Pauleta, iconic goalscorer of Paris Saint-Germain between 2003 and 2008, became the Official Ambassador of the Paris Saint-Germain Academy in December 2013.

His attachment to and his past with the club make him the ideal representative to accompany the Academy's development in France and abroad.

Our ambassador

Paris Saint-Germain offers players the chance to play in the best conditions possible, notably thanks to its know-how in terms of developing young players. It's an immense honour for me and a great pleasure to become the Official Ambassador of the Paris Saint-Germain Academy in order to be able to share with youngsters across the whole world the experiences I had during the many years I spent at this marvellous club.
