PSG’s Notre Dame Shirts Sell Out Immediately

April 23, 2019

All of the 1,000 Paris Saint-Germain shirts with a large image of the Notre-Dame in place of the sponsor’s logo on the front sold out within half an hour and the profit has been given to emergency services, the club said yesterday.

AFP reports:

The jerseys were replicas of those which the French champions wore in their Ligue 1 victory over Monaco on Sunday.

“Notre-Dame” replaced the player names on the back of the shirts.

PSG tweeted that it sold: 500 on the internet, 250 in the megastore, 250 in the Champs-Elysees.

Each shirt cost €100 (US$122). The club would not say how much money had been given to the charities associated with the fire service in the French capital.

François-Henri Pinault, the owner of Ligue 1 club Stade Rennais FC, has pledged to donate €100 million to help rebuild the cathedral in Paris.
