The 2020-21 season will mark Paris Saint-Germain’s 50th anniversary. August was supposed to kick off the festivities that Les Parisiens had planned but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there will be some changes.
According to Le Parisien, the capital club is postponing their legends match (originally scheduled for late August) because no supporters will be able to attend and the club felt it was best to reschedule the event.
With players like Pauleta, Raí, Ronaldinho, and others coming back to the Parc des Princes it doesn’t seem right to hold this match without the supporters in attendance.
Furthermore, even if they could hold the event with some people inside the Parc, PSG could be preparing for a UEFA Champions League final in Portugal and then the start of the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season. The timing just doesn’t work.
The legends match deserves to stand alone without much distraction as fans from different decades reminisce seeing some of the players that gave them plenty of memories when they wore the Parisian colors.
