With the French champions set to unveil their new kit for 2023-24, GOAL takes a look at their best strips from over the years...

PSG have never been short of style. The club, deeply engrained into the culture of the French capital, has recently become synonymous with the city's glitz. It's something that has been apparent in their home kits over the years, too.

It started with the original Hechter shirt, named after the club's president from 1974-1978. He designed the first classic PSG kit, one that would be famously worn by Johan Cruyff in a club friendly. And that spirit has continued since, with the likes of George Weah, Ronaldinho, Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Neymar all suiting up in some variation of the famous shirt.

There are lots of classics, old and new, to choose from, but GOAL has put together PSG's top 10 home kits of all time...

  1. #10 Cruyff and more (1974-80)

    Johan Cruyff famously played two games for PSG in a friendly tournament in 1975, due to his appreciation of club president and renowned designer Daniel Hechter. Although the Parisians would lose to Valencia in the final, Cruyff's addition to the side helped PSG sell out Parc des Princes for the high-profile competition.

    It was also the year that PSG launched its now-famous youth academy — the humble beginnings of the world-class centre it would soon become.

  2. A 90s classic (1996-97)

    #9 A 90s classic (1996-97)

    There isn't much of a difference between this one and the v-neck of the strip the year before. But the design didn't really need changing — something proved by the immense popularity this shirt has retained over the years.

    PSG did a lot of finishing second in this kit. They were runners up in Ligue 1, and lost two European finals. Still, this shirt has survived the test of time.

  3. Electric for Mbappe and Neymar (2018-19)

    #8 Electric for Mbappe and Neymar (2018-19)

    PSG needed to mark the arrival of emerging star Mbappe on a permanent deal with something special, and they did so in 2018.

    The "electric" design was unlike any other Nike design in the world ,and paid a more subtle homage to the club's Paris roots. The kit wasn't met with much European success — the Parisians would crash out of the Champions League in the last 16. But they still won Ligue 1 by 16 points.

  4. Coupe de France win (1982-83)

    #7 Coupe de France win (1982-83)

    1982 was a pivotal year in PSG's history. In appearing in the European Cup Winners' Cup, they became the first Parisian club to play in Europe since the 1960s.

    Domestically, they enjoyed one of their most impressive years yet, managing a third-place Ligue 1 finish before beating French champions Nantes in the Coupe de France final.

  5. The French flag returns (2022-23)

    #6 The French flag returns (2022-23)

    What to do if you've gone away from the tricolore for too long? Bring it back in the best way possible seems to have been the answer here. PSG's 2022-23 kit draws on multiple eras, as well as a healthy dose of Parisian identity, to formulate one of the best home strips in football.

    This campaign will likely not be remembered for its sporting success or harmonious dressing room. But the shirt will live on.

  6. Zlatan dominates (2013-14)

    #5 Zlatan dominates (2013-14)

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored 156 goals in 180 appearances for PSG, enjoying an immensely successful four-year spell in the French capital. The 2013-14 campaign was arguably his best.

    The Sweden striker scored 26 Ligue 1 goals and was named Player of the Year as PSG bagged their second consecutive league title. He was equally prolific in the Champions League, too, scoring 10 times in eight fixtures. European success was elusive, but this was Zlatan at his scintillating best.

  7. Samba flair (2001-02)

    #4 Samba flair (2001-02)

    Ronaldinho signed for PSG in 2001, and was instantly a controversial figure. Manager Luis Fernandez crticised the mercurial Brazilian for being too active in the Parisian nightlife, and often complained that his holidays back to his homeland wouldn't comply with the club's schedule.

    But those gripes have been largely forgotten in the realm of Samba perfection. This was the year of a rising star, one that would soon move to Barcelona and become the world's best.

  8. Weah & Ginola star in the Champions League (1994-95)

    #3 Weah & Ginola star in the Champions League (1994-95)

    Champions League nights in Paris aren't bad, and this is where some of that European magic started for the Parisians.

    Coming off a famous Ligue 1-winning campaign, the Parisians got their chance at top-tier European football. And they came very close to hitting the pinnacle immediately. They rolled through the group stage and dispatched Barcelona in the knockouts before falling to holders AC Milan.

    There was plenty of star power on display, too, buoyed by the electric combo of David Ginola and George Weah.

  9. Jordan perfection (2021-22)

    #2 Jordan perfection (2021-22)

    The 2021-22 season was far from a perfect campaign for PSG. Although the French side reclaimed the Ligue 1 title, they suffered yet another Champions League last-16 exit.

    Still, they played some scintillating stuff at times. Led by the Messi-Mbappe-Neymar trio, the Parisians had the equality on the pitch to tear any team apart. The Jordan brand shirt was clean, too.

  10. The one everyone wants today (1995-96)

    #1 The one everyone wants today (1995-96)

    It was a season of silverware for PSG in this kit. The Parisians won the Cup Winner's Cup and Trophee des Champions, while also running title winners Nantes close in Ligue 1.

    There were, admittedly, some disappointments, such as a last-16 exit in the Coupe de France. These days, though, the specifics of the season are forgotten. No true kit collection is complete without this classic.
