Although the men’s team may have crashed out in a now typically PSG manner, the women’s team are still firmly in the competition.
To celebrate their UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich later this month, players have taken over the Parc des Princes in order to represent and draw attention to women’s football.
The French stadium will host the fixture’s second-leg and from this week, 11 player portraits will be posted on the railings along the Rue du Commandant Guilbauld leading up to the Wall of PSG Legends, painted by renowned graffiti artist Estim.
The portraits were snapped by the phenomenal photographer Joseph Degbadjo, with the assistance of Elisa Parron. The two artists are regulars to the stadium and have helped to craft PSG’s globetrotting image over the years via a series of shoots for the club.
The images will form part of the club’s growing #MarchforEquality campaign, implemented by the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation. The campaign aims to raise awareness of gender equality throughout the month of March. This includes various programmes such as Allez Les Filles, Allez Les Femmes, Red & Blue Schools, and the charity canteen.
The club’s current and former female players came together at the Parc des Princes yesterday, where they were joined by the beneficiaries of the Foundation’s programmes and hosted a conference on the hsitory of the women’s team since its formation in ‘71.
PSG Féminine will host Bayern Munich in the second leg of their UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final tie at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday 30 March, kick off at 21:00 CET. Tickets can be purchased here.
