For the next two games, the leaders of France’s Ligue 1, Laurent Blanc’s Paris Saint-Germain, will be wearing “Je Suis Paris” on their shirts in memory of the November 13 Paris Attacks initiated by the Islamic State. Nearly 130 lives have been lost in the attacks, an event that has shaken the city, France, and the world…but has not broken its spirit and resolve for peace.

In Ligue 1 play, PSG currently lead the table with 12 wins, two draws and zero defeats through 14 games of action. They are also 2-1-1 in UEFA Champions League play, second only to Real Madrid in Group A.

From PSG’s web site…

“In tribute to the victims of November 13 attacks, the Paris Saint-Germain players will wear a special jersey which only bears the message “JE SUIS PARIS” and nothing else for their next two matches: against Malmö in the Champions League on Wednesday night and again, on Saturday in their Ligue 1 home match against Troyes.

This message of unity will appear on the shirt in the space usually occupied by our main partner Emirates.

The President of Paris Saint-Germain Nasser Al-Khelaifi would like to “especially thank the Club’s partners Emirates, as well as Ooredoo and QNB, who have released their space on the players’ jerseys.”

Next Saturday, for the first home match at Parc des Princes since the dramatic events, Paris Saint-Germain will honour the victims with a message in unison with the vibrant solidarity expressed by the French and International football community during the past days.”
