The Camp des Loges is the training center of French football club Paris Saint-Germain. It is located in the commune of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, which is in the western suburbs of Paris. Pedro Alonso was the club's first director, Bertrand Reuzeau is the current director. The club also has a pre-training center, which houses players age 14 and under, located in Verneuil-sur-Seine. The Camp des Loges is recognized by the French Football Federation as one of the best in France, being classified as Class 1 and Class A in recent seasons. The center's main stadia, Stade Georges Lefèvre, hosts training sessions for the senior team and also serves as the home stadia for the club's reserve and female sides.
Camp des Loges was officially inaugurated on 21 June 1904, following the creation of Paris Saint-Germain's predecessor, Stade Saint-Germain. For approximately 70 years, the Camp des Loges was home to Stade Saint-Germain until the club's fusion with fellow local club Paris FC. Following the foundation of Paris Saint-Germain in 1974, the Camp des Loges began operating as a training center for the club. The PSG training center officially opened on 4 November 1975 with Pedro Alonso being installed as the club's first director.
Located between the forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye and military facilities, the center has been subject of debate for over a quarter century. In the early 70s, the Camp des Loges was one of the most modern facilities in the country and, on several occasions, housed the France national football team who conducted several preparatory training sessions at the facility. But as time passed, the facilities began to run old. During the mid-80s, the mayor of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, who owned the center, invested some money with efforts to keep the Camp des Loges running efficiently. However, the investment failed to meet the requirements the center needed to operate effectively. Because of this, then-president Francis Borelli and the leaders of the club, during the Canal+ era, denounced this situation, however, they too were unable to improve the conditions of the Camp des Loges.
In March 2006, in order to modernize the center, Paris Saint-Germain announced that the club would temporarily vacate the Camp des Loges in order for the facilities to be renovated. The preparation of the terrain began in January 2008, while the first stone was laid in July 2008 and it was completed on October 24, 2008 – just over three months later. The installation of furniture and equipment began before the official inauguration on 4 November. The entire process cost €5 million. The new Camp des Loges, located 400 meters from the old, was inaugurated on 4 November 2008. The total grassed surface area, including football pitches is 24,446 m² in a total surface area of 28,888 m², it contains all the necessary amenities for a club level. This includes an aqua-therapy centre, massage room, treatment room, weight room, relaxation room, offices for staff and presidential hierarchy, press zone, recreational area, etc.
The training complex in numbers:
The Stade Georges Lefèvre of the Camp des Loges was, from 1904 to 1970, the main stadium of Stade Saint-Germain until the club's fusion with fellow local club Paris FC. It was renamed Stade Georges Lefèvre in 1945, for the player of the Stade Saint-Germain who died at the front in 1940. Following the foundation of Paris Saint-Germain in 1974, the Camp des Loges began operating as a training center for the club. Currently, the stadium hosts training sessions for the senior team and also serves as the home stadia for the club's reserve and female sides.
In the 2009-2010 season, Paris Saint-Germain's reserve team is competing in the Group C of the Championnat de France Amateurs. The reserves have won the Championship of the Northern Division in 1987 and three Coupe de Paris in 1972, 1973 and 1980, now played by the club's third team.
