Press release

Paris Saint-Germain has always acted in full compliance with the laws and regulations enacted by sports institutions.

The club has always strictly complied with all applicable laws and regulations and firmly denies the allegations published today by Mediapart.

The QTA contract figure has been known to UEFA and to the general public since 2014.

In 2014 UEFA confirmed that our contract with the Qatar Tourism Authority provided promotion and diffusion of the country.

The principle of this contract is simple: today, the positive results of PSG are systematically associated with Qatar and directly benefit its image.

Since the introduction of Financial fair play, Paris Saint-Germain has been one of the most audited and scrutinised clubs in history.

In addition to its own auditors, KPMG and then PWC, the club has hosted at its headquarters several auditors mandated by the football authorities. Over the last seven years these auditors have always benefited from comprehensive information on the club's accounts and contracts.

Exchanges with members of the chambers of the Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) take place within the framework of UEFA's statutes. UEFA then adjudicates independently on this basis. This is demonstrated by the severity of the decisions taken regarding Paris Saint-Germain.

Paris Saint-Germain understands and endorses the will to stabilise European football's debts and calls for fair regulation that allows sporting equity and facilitates sustainable investment in football.

France is at the forefront of these issues. Since 1984 the National Directorate of Management Control (DNCG) established strict rules and obligations which go beyond those of UEFA and have proven their effectiveness in regulating the management of clubs.
