A chance for PSG.FR to look back at the best moments of the past decade. Today, we're looking at the new owners' arrival that sent the club into a different dimension.

Named as Paris Saint-Germain President back in 2011, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi became the key figure of the club from the capital's new project. A new start both on the field and in the brand's development that lead to numerous successes. 

On the pitch first of all, Paris Saint-Germain have became an undeniable force. Big players with international reputation arrived from European giants and was the first big impact made by the new board. After so many games and emotional moments, Paris Saint-Germain have recorded some crazy statistics over the last ten years: 1314 goals scored in 553 official matches, with 399 victories and 258 clean sheets.

The Paris Saint-Germain women's section also saw a turn of form with QSI's arrival in Paris, and the hard work paid off. En 2018, the Rouge et Bleu lifted the Coupe de France, first trophy won since 2008 (Challenge de France), before becoming French champions for the first time in their history, in 2021.

Paris Saint-Germain Handball have won 19 trophies since 2011: 8 French championship titles (2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021), 4 Coupes de France (2014, 2015, 2018 and 2021), 4 Trophées des champions (2014, 2015, 2016 and 2019), 3 Coupes de la Ligue (2017, 2018, 2019).

Always as thoughtful of respecting Paris Saint-Germain's history while looking ahead to the future, and under Nasser Al-Khelaïfi's guidance, the club restarted their Judo section in September 2017, helped notably by the legend of the sport Teddy Riner, and inaugurated PSG eSports in October 2016, to shine of the Gaming scene with FIFA, DOTA 2 and even Brawl Stars.

Brilliance also off the field
