Paris Saint-Germain Academy is finally open in 2023

Paris Saint-Germain Academy symbolises the club’s commitment to youth development, both on sporting and educational levels. Today, the Academy is present in 20 countries, where more than 30,000 children learn to play football the “Paris Saint-Gemain way”. We share the vision of enhancing football experiences for children aged 4 to 18 years old, at any skill level. Our young football players will learn to play with Paris Saint-Germain’s values and will be taught: to be proud of their club, to respect their teammates, their opponents and referee. We will promote football in Japan as part of the culture that Paris Saint-Germain represents, as well as other aspects including fashion, languages and e-sports.


Providing world-class standards

While in Japan, children can learn the same world-class training that Paris Saint-Germain players such as Mbappe and Messi do on a daily basis. We propose the unique 'Paris Saint-Germain method', which was created by the club's technical director and common to all teams, from the youth academy to the professional team. It creates intelligent players who understand the game, can adapt to different situations and, as they grow up, are able to make the right decisions independently. The ultimate goal of the Academy is to develop good footballers, but also to transmit strong educational values which will be part of the child day to day life.

Connect to the World

"Your child will benefit from several cultural experiences, through regular training sessions and international events (if selected).
Classes are held in Japanese, as well as utilising English, so your child will be exposed to foreign languaged during each training session.
The PSG Academy World Cup is an international event held once a year. For four days, teams from every Academy come together, offering them a unique sporting and cultural experience. The kids play in a football tournament, visit Paris and get to watch a Ligue 1 live at the Parc des Princes. Also, the two best players from each Academy in the world get to participate every year in the PSG Academy Selection Camp, an intensive week-long camp with the aim of helping the youngsters to continue their development and introduce them to the demands of elite football."

Classification according to level

Even the most famous players start out by getting comfortable with the ball. Anyone, even beginners, can feel free to participate in our trial classes. The Academy offers regular classes for Beginners and Elite (selective) classes. For those who want to join a higher level class, we encourage you to aim for the Elite class with a high level of motivation in daily practice. Members of the elite class are aware that they must be able to act as a role model within the team.



This is a small-group class for children from 4 to 6 years old. Children who are starting football for the first time will learn the joy of physical activity and a sense of camaraderie by cooperating with friends, as well as other important early childhood motor and communication skills through football. (Re-Elite class only)

Pre-Elite Class

Pre-Elite Classes are open to first grade elementary school students and beginners. The class is designed to develop individual physical and decision-making abilities through the sport of football, including more flexible use of the body and decision-making skills.

Master Skill Class

Elite Class

This is an Elite class that can be joined after a tryout with the coaches. This class is designed to develop players who not only understand and can implement the Paris Saint-Germain method, but who can also look to the world to improve their skills and become a role model for their teams wherever they play.
