Paris FC is actually historically tied to Paris Saint-Germain and goes back to the 1970s. The clubs were originally one unit, but they split at the beginning of the decade and went their own separate paths. While PSG has clearly been the more successful of the two in recent history, Paris FC is an important fixture on the sport’s landscape.

Meanwhile, Paris FC president Pierre Ferracci has welcomed the opportunity to be teaming up with VBet. He praised the new collaboration between the organizations and said that Paris FC continues to grow its footprint both in the domestic market, but also internationally. “I would like to thank VBet for its support and for the great confidence it has shown in us. Welcome to VBet with Paris FC,” Ferracci added.
VBet is also known in the French market as the betting company-sponsored other French clubs, including AS Monaco. Meanwhile, the French gaming regulator, the L’Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ), has said that it would seek to more actively block websites that are targeting French citizens without a license in clear violation of gambling laws.
