Discovery, meetings, training: on the trail of the Parisians in Doha

After arriving in Doha on Wednesday, the Parisians had a memorable day meeting the local people.

From the start of the day, the team had the chance to meet their fans in the region through a number of activations from sponsors such as Qatar Airways, ALL, Qatar Tourism, QNB, Ooredoo and Aspetar.

There was a chance to chat, sign autographs and get a few photos, as well as tasting the local food and discovering the Aspetar centre. 

In the second half of the day, the team headed to the Khalifa Stadium for an open training session sponsored by our partner Ooredoo. No fewer than 30,000 fans, sponsors and local fan club members watched the players being put through their paces. 

Marquinhos, Paris Saint-Germain captain, told PSG: "We feel at home here in Qatar. We've been welcomed very warmly and given the best possible conditions. The warmth of the fans is going to give us a boost for the rest of the season."

It was also the ideal opportunity for the players to don the 2022/23 4th kit, wearing the training shirt for the first time. They will wear the 4th match shirt on Thursday evening in Riyadh when they compete for the Riyadh Season Cup.
