The club was founded in August 1970. Gathering funds from 20,000 subscribers, the founding of FC Paris marked the reappearance of a major club in Paris after the demise of R.C. Paris, Red Star and Stade Français (among others). The union of F.C. Paris and Stade Saint-Germain (from Saint-Germain-en-Laye), motivated by the need to find players, structures, and a place in a higher division, resulted in the creation of Paris Saint-Germain Football Club. The new club played in the Nationale (second) division for the 197071 season. The club won the division and was promoted to the top division in their first season.

After finishing 16th in 197172 the club split in May. Under pressure from the Paris City Council to remove the reference to Saint-Germain, the professional part of the club joined C.A. Montreuil and remained in the top division as Paris F.C., the amateur part of the club continued in the third division as amateur side Paris Saint-Germain. PSG was promoted to D2 in 1972–73, as champions following the disqualification of Quevilly. The following season the club returned to professional status and finished second in the league, winning promotion to the top division in a play-off with Valenciennes. In a pleasing symmetry for PSG supporters, Paris F.C. were relegated in that season and PSG would henceforth always play at the newly rebuilt Parc des Princes, once the ground of Paris F.C. 1971 is a common year starting on Friday (click for link to calendar). ... 1972 was a leap year that started on a Saturday. ...

In Europe, the club became famous by making at least five semi-finals in a row (1993 to 1997) in various European cups, securing the title in the Cup Winners' Cup in 1996, only to lose the next year when they made the final again, against Barcelona.
