PSG TO UPGRADE PARC DES PRINCES

Paris Saint-Germain have unveiled plans to improve their Parc des Princes home.

The estimated €75m project will begin following PSG's final Ligue 1 game of the season on May 18th and is planned to be completed by the start of the 2015/16 campaign.

PSG's managing director Jean-Claude Blanc said: "It's about improving the quality of a good number of areas of the stadium with an emphasis on design and aesthetics.

"We'll play at the Parc throughout the work. We won't close any of the stands nor will any games be played elsewhere. You have to compare it with the best in Europe. Right now, the surface area of the Parc des Princes dressing rooms is about a third of that of Juventus.

"Teams move about with more and more equipment, there are more backroom staff and they need more space for medical care. We're going to optimise every existing square metre. We want to find solutions to allow us to go from a capacity of 45,000 to 60,000."
