Paris deputy mayor Says Parc Des Princes Naming-Rights Deal Will Get Done
Paris St. Germain fans "will possibly" go cheer on the club at the Parc des Princes-QNB in the future, according to Philippe Romain of SPORT24. Paris Deputy Mayor Jean Vuillermoz said, "The naming, it will get done, it has to. Even if it is not necessarily what I prefer, it is self explanatory that it reduces the costs on a stadium." The city of Paris, which owns the stadium, "will however not compromise the Parc des Princes name." Since September, sources have mentioned "advanced negotiations between PSG and the Qatar National Bank," which could see the financial institution pay around €400M ($511M) over four years to have its name on the stadium and jersey of the club. Such a deal would allow PSG "to fall in line with the new Financial Fair Play rules." PSG management refused to comment on the story (SPORT24, 11/14).
