Paris Saint-Germain Football Club will replace the logo of shirt sponsor Emirates with the text “JE SUIS PARIS” (I AM PARIS) for their next two matches.
The defending French Ligue 1 champions announced that they would add the phrase below their badge in tribute to the victims of the November 13 terror attacks that struck France’s capital last week. While they did do so for Saturday’s 2-1 win at Lorient, the club has decided to amplify the message with co-operation from Emirates.
PSG will wear a “JE SUIS PARIS” version of their black 2015/16 Nike third kit at Malmö in the Champions League action on Wednesday evening.
This message of unity will appear on the PSG home shirt when they host Troyes in Ligue 1 action at the Parc de Princes on Saturday. Secondary shirt sponsors Ooredoo and QNB have also released the club from their obligation to include their logos on the Paris Saint-Germain kit for the game.
