Paris Saint-Germain made a surprising change to their preseason tour plans, opting for a highly lucrative offer.
L’Equipe reports that the capital club initially had plans to spend their summer preparing for the 2023-24 season in the United States. However, an offer from Japan and even a little more by going to South Korea was too sweet to pass up.
🚨 PSG were planning to go to USA this summer, but an offer from Japan has changed everything. The club will rake in more than €20m, and even a little more by going to South Korea. Might be the most lucrative summer tour for a football club. @lequipe 💰🇯🇵

The decision will generate significant revenue for the club, surpassing €20 million and potentially making it the most financially rewarding summer tour for a football club.
PSG’s decision to switch their preseason tour destination reflects the growing interest in football and the commercial potential in Asian markets.
Japan and South Korea have fans and economic opportunities for the capital club to explore. As a result, it makes it an attractive proposition for clubs looking to expand their global footprint.
Perhaps the Ligue 1 side will head to the United States next summer. While PSG is opening club stores, they must connect more with their fanbase and grow it in North America.
