American Express extends backing of PSG

French Ligue 1 football club Paris Saint-Germain has renewed its partnership with payment services brand American Express.

The length of the new agreement was not disclosed but the two parties are set to continue their ‘Concierge du Parc – American Express’ concierge initiative within the hospitality areas at PSG’s Parc des Princes stadium.

The initiative allows fans to reserve a restaurant or table at Paris restaurants after matches, order taxis and purchase last-minute tickets for shows and major events.

The partnership also offers exclusive advantages for American Express clients such as ticket access, invitations to events featuring PSG players and deals on club merchandise.

Marc Armstrong, PSG’s sponsorship director, said: “This partnership continues our desire to provide a unique and premium experience to our clients in the hospitality areas of the Parc des Princes. Courtesy of American Express’s expertise in high-level concierge services, we can offer our clients the opportunity to extend the magical experience of a night at the Parc des Princes.”
