PSG FC Over the Years
PSG is the only French team to have won the 1995–96 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, one of just two French teams to have won a significant European competition, and the youngest European team to have done so. They are the only team to have won the Coupe de France without giving up a goal (1992-93 and 2016-17), five consecutive Coupe de la Ligue (2014-2018), four consecutive Coupe de France (2015-2018), and eight consecutive Trophée des Champions (2013-2020). They are also the only team to have won the Ligue 1 championship after being at the top of the table from the first to the last round (2022-23).
PSG has won all four national championships in the same season four times. The domestic quadruple is the name of this achievement. The Red and Blues have also frequently won the league three times, the league and league cup twice, the domestic cup twice, and the domestic treble.
PSG is the team with the most domestic trebles, domestic trebles, and domestic quadruples. They are also the club with the most league and league cup doubles, one of two teams to have twice completed a league triple, and the only team to have won the domestic cup double, domestic treble, and domestic quadruple.
PSG has played in Ligue 1, the top division of French football, for 50 of their 53 seasons since its founding. They celebrated their 49th consecutive Ligue 1 season in 2022–2023, becoming them the longest-serving club in the competition. PSG has competed in Ligue 1 regularly since the 1974–1975 season.
Since then, the Parisians have won eleven league championships, consistently coming in first place. With nine league seasons in which PSG finished second, they have occupied the top two slots 20 times.
Additionally, they’ve made the top five 28 times, which is more than half of the club’s Ligue 1 seasons. PSG’s lowest-ever result is 16th, which occurred in both 1971–72 (their first season in Ligue 1) and 2007–08, when they avoided relegation with a 2-1 victory against Sochaux on the penultimate day of the campaign.
Le Classique refers to the matches between Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille, two teams that have a fierce rivalry. The teams are the only French teams that have won significant European titles and are the two most successful clubs in French football. The match is therefore France’s fiercest rivalry.
In 1986, when PSG won their first title and Bernard Tapie acquired OM, the rivalry really got going. By the close of the decade, PSG and Tapie’s Marseille were competing for the 1988–89 championship. Their antagonism grew as a result of the claims made by PSG president Francis Borelli that Tapie and OM had fixed games that season.
Tensions between the two factions grew more intense throughout the 1990s. The French television network Canal+ purchased PSG in 1991 with the intention of upending Marseille’s dominance, but then decided to work with Tapie to highlight their rivalry in order to advance the league.
PSG and OM emerged as the front-runners in the campaign for the title because they had comparable financial support. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, both teams had less success, but the rivalry remained fierce. PSG has dominated the competition during the 2010s, and the massive investment of their Qatari owners has widened the gap between the clubs.
