The areas and amenities within the new Training Center will be used to expand the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation’s actions. This is an important commitment for the Club and supports its desire to help local youngsters, especially of the city of Poissy.
A THIRD ROUGE & BLEU SCHOOL
After first appearing in Paris and Mantes-la-Jolie, a third Rouge & Bleu School, run by the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation, will open its doors in the Club’s new Training Center in Poissy. Placed under the patronage of the French National Commission for UNESCO, this after-school programme, developed by the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation, helps underprivileged children aged 7 to 11. The goal of the initiative is to boost their desire to learn and help them to flourish, by placing sport at the heart of the approach.

PROVIDING A BETTER WELCOME
During the school holidays, the Center may become one of the new destinations for “PSG Holidays”, another initiative run by the Club’s Foundation. The programme allows children who are not going away on holiday to spend a week with the Club, taking part in sport-related workshops and cultural visits in the region.
The new facilities offered at the Training Center will, due to their accessibility, facilitate the arrival and supervision of young patients as part of the partnership between the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation and Necker Hospital for Sick Children. This partnership, implemented in 2012, enables sick youngsters to attend training sessions and meet their favourite players.
As well as blending in with our city’s urban and natural landscape, the project has a powerful social dimension thanks to the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation’s local actions, starting with the opening of a Rouge & Bleu School for the local children.
By hosting one of the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation’s Rouge & Bleu Schools, the Paris Saint-Germain Training Center will forge a direct link with the youngsters in Poissy. It will fulfil the role that we set for this school, which is to help children flourish.
