Paris Saint-Germain has admitted instances of ethnic profiling in scouting materials for youth players.

PSG's recruiters outside of the Paris region included an "origin" section in their scouting reports that listed "African, Caribbean, French and Maghreb" as options.

PSG reiterated their "fight against all forms of discrimination" and the fact that the club has been "fighting against all forms of stadium violence and racism" for the past 10 years.

Under French law, "collecting or processing personal data that directly or indirectly reveals the racial or ethnic origin of a person" is an offence punishable by five years in prison and a €300,000 fine.
