The club has now created a shortlist of three inspirational messages, including “50 years, 40 trophies, only 1 passion,” Ici c’est Paris,” and “Our history will become legendary.” $PSG token holders will choose the most suitable message and the one with the highest number of votes will become the official message on the club’s captain armband.
