The Rouge et Bleu were going back to Paris this Thursday morning. Time to return to these four incredible days in Doha, which saw the Parisians live moments of exception and share privileged moments with their local fans.
Arrived Sunday, the players of the club of the capital began their stay in Doha with many fans which waited for them at the airport and in front of their hotel. After long minutes of signing autographs and taking pictures, the Rouge et Bleu then went to their hotel before fully immersing themselves in this Qatar Tour.
On Monday, the Parisians were all over Doha with photo shoots, filming or meetings with fans, as part of activations for Qatari partners of the club. Magical moments, including this shoot in the desert, by the sea, with Buffon, Neymar, Di Maria and Thiago Silva.
Presnel Kimpembe, Thilo Kehrer, Christopher Nkunku, Alphonse Areola and Thomas Meunier have discovered the Al Wakrah stadium, one of the future stadiums of the 2022 World Cup under construction. To get there, they took exclusively the new metro line built for the occasion, while Edinson Cavani, Marco Verratti, Kylian Mbappe, Marquinhos and Dani Alves went to the Kempinski Hotel to participate in a advertisement shooting for the Qatari bank QNB.
On Monday, more than 300 children were present at the inauguration of the Paris Saint-Germain Academy in Doha on the Qatar Foundation premises. Attended by Thilo Kehrer, Layvin Kurzawa, Moussa Diaby, Stanley Nsoki and Colin Dagba, the children shared moments of exchange with the players around some photos and signatures. Finally, on the Katara beach north of Doha, some players on the team, including Christopher Nkunku, Alphonse Areola and Sébastien Cibois, competed against Paris Saint-Germain eSports professionals: Qatari Ahmed Al-Meghessib and Brazilian Rafael Fortes .
The following day, more than 15,000 fans attended the training session at Paris Saint-Germain, at Khalifa Stadium in Doha. A new proof of the growing popularity of the Capital Club in the region. A special moment punctuated by the deployment by the players of a banner on which appeared a word of thanks to the fans.
Finally, on Wednesday, all Paris Saint-Germain players participated in camel races at the Al Shayaniya race course near Doha. Winners of the first two races, Neymar Jr and Coach Tuchel donated their earnings to the works of the Endowment Fund of Paris Saint-Germain: two checks of 25,000 euros, each from the Qatari telephone operator Ooredoo, official partner of the Club and organizer of the event.
The Rouge et Bleu also took part in several training sessions on the beautiful field of Aspire Zone, to also prepare the best part of the season that promises to be once again full of emotion!
