Groupe ADP enters into partnership with Paris FC

Groupe ADP and Paris FC (Football Club) have signed a partnership agreement for the next three seasons.
The goal of this partnership is to support the development of Paris FC, mainly on its facilities. Its new training centre, a state-of-the-art club for the professional men’s team (Ligue 2), the women’s team (D1 Féminine), and the Training and Administrative Centres, will give the Paris club a new lease of life. This training centre, located in Orly, will officially be known as the “Groupe ADP - Centre d’entraînement Paris FC”.
This collaboration will help boost the sporting and administrative organisation of Paris FC, whose goal is to reach the Ligue 1 championship as soon as possible and to establish itself as the flagship football club of the greater Paris. This major sporting and societal ambition will be based on an already widely recognised training policy.

On this occasion, Pierre Ferracci, Chairman of Paris FC, said: “Paris FC is very proud to join forces with Groupe ADP. This partnership with a wordwide leader illustrates the club's ambition and its growing attractiveness with young people and high quality teams of women and men. Groupe ADP will be a valuable partner for the expansion of Paris FC. This strong partnership also shows the club's desire to be part of the transformation and the animation on a booming territory in the heart of the greater Paris.”

And Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Groupe ADP, adds “Groupe ADP is very glad to link up with Paris FC. For us, it's important to share the benefits of our growth with our economic, cultural and associative ecosystem. This partnership is also a demonstration of our commitment for territories as Groupe ADP's Fondation and the environment and sustainable centers have been organizing football tournaments for the past four years, where 700 young amateurs aged between 11 and 13 had been gathering each summer. In 201, Paris FC had joined it by hosting the ADP's cup of the Great Orly.”

About Paris FC

Founded in 1969, Paris Football Club has been climbing the Domino’s Ligue 2 table over the 2018-2019 season. Over the past few years, Paris FC has undergone a revival, stimulated by its return to the world of professional football in 2015. This has driven the club to ramp up its training, notably with the inauguration of its Training Centre in 2018, with a view to creating the feeling and pride of becoming Paris’ alternative professional football club. As the French club with the largest women’s section, Paris FC also intends to shine in the women’s leagues. Its other major goals include reclaiming the UEFA Women’s Champions League title and becoming the leading men’s and women’s training club in France.
