Paris Saint-Germain players

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain have revealed that they wear a special strip in honour of the victims of terror attacks in Paris.

French officials report that 130 people were killed and left about another 100 in a critical condition from a series of terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday, November 13 including three fatalities outside the Stade de France during the friendly game between France and Germany.

To honour those victims, PSG for the next two games will wear specially designed shirts featuring the message 'Je Suis Paris' in remembrance of those who died in the attacks.

The message will be in the front of the shirts instead of the logo of the club’s sponsor Emirates.

PSG will wear the special strips for the UEFA Champions League game against Malmo on Wednesday, November 25 and their home Ligue 1 clash with Troyes on Saturday, November 28.

“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” the club said in a statement on their website.

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