Operated by Lids, the new store opening follows the success of PSG’s New York, and Europe locations
INDIANAPOLIS, May 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, France’s most successful football club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has unveiled a new permanent store location in Miami, which will be run and operated by leading hat retailer, Lids.
Following the successful opening of the Fanatics and Lids-operated PSG flagship store in New York in early 2022, the new Miami store will be located at 1024 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach, FL United States 33139. To coincide with the Miami store opening, the new PSG X Nike Home Kit will launch on 5/31, offering passionate football and fashion fans the opportunity to secure the highly anticipated release the day it’s available.
As part of the club’s long-term partnership with Lids and Fanatics, Lids oversees the operations for PSG store locations to create a unique and consistent retail experience worldwide for sports fanatics and fashion enthusiasts alike to enjoy.
“PSG is an iconic franchise, and we are thrilled to take this next step in our partnership,” said Lawrence Berger, Co-Founder and Partner at Ames Watson, owner of Lids, and Chairman of FanzzLids Holdings. “Miami is a city that truly appreciates sports and is a great fit for this new PSG store location. The reaction from consumers has been positive around the world to our New York, and Europe locations. We can’t wait for Miami residents to stop by and see the unique features of this new store for themselves.”
The Miami store will feature team jerseys, headwear, accessories, one-of-a-kind collaborations, fashion collections, and more. The store will also include customization stations, a signature feature available in most Lids retail stores, where consumers can customize their products on-site.
“Football is booming in the US as the country is gearing up organizing an amazing World Cup in 2026. We are delighted to be part of the journey with ambitious projects of PSG stores to swarm all over the US.
After the launch of the PSG Academy US in 2014 and the successful 2015, 2016 and 2017 Summer tours, setting up a new store in Miami is a milestone for the Club. It brings us closer to our fans in the Magic city. As the only international sports franchise to establish our own retail stores worldwide, we are determined to continue our expansion with Lids, especially in the US, a priority market for the Club.” – added Fabien ALLEGRE, Chief Brand Officer, Paris Saint-Germain.
The Miami store opening comes just days after the unveiling of Paris Saint-Germain’s lifestyle capsule collection with internationally renowned Colombian designer Estaban Cortazar, launched alongside the Miami Formula 1 Grand Prix.
