Next week, PSG will travel to the Persian Gulf for an express tour of Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The delegation will leave Paris on the evening of January 17 to spend just over 24 hours in the country of its owner. This will be an opportunity for Parisians to participate in various activities with their local sponsors (Qatar Airways, ALL, Qatar Tourism, QNB, Ooredoo and Aspetar) and to train at Khalifa Stadium.
Return to Paris on the morning of the 20th
On the 19th, they will join Ryad in order to play a friendly match there in the evening against a local selection made up of the best players from the clubs of Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr, that of Cristiano Ronaldo. At the end of this meeting, Messi and his teammates will return to Paris where they will arrive on the 20th in the early morning. The club has asked to play its 16th final of the Coupe de France against an opponent yet to be defined, on Monday 23, what will be the case.
This short stay will overload the program of the players and the staff would have done well without it. But this tour, stalled more than a year ago, was contractual and will bring in several million euros for the club. A financial windfall that will serve him, the financial fair play of UEFA watching him closely.
