PSG To Get First Star Soon? France Stars Kit Rule Explained

Have you ever wondered why PSG does not have a star on their kits while AS Saint-Etienne and Olympique Marseille even have one on their logo? Let us find out which and why French teams have stars on their jerseys.



French Teams Get Star For Every 10 League Titles




Unlike the rule in the German Bundesliga, the stars rule in France is pretty simple. A team gets a star for every 10 league titles. However, there is only one team with 10 titles or more (AS Saint-Etienne - 10 titles), but there are three teams who are having stars on their kit (and even on their logo) - AS Saint-Etienne, Olympique Marseille and Nantes.



Olympique Marseille has one star for their 1993 Champions League. Nantes has eight stars incorporated in their logo for their 8 league titles.



PSG does not have a star on their kit because they only won 7 league titles so far (soon 8). There are various teams that have just a few less than 10 titles. Below is a list with all French clubs with more than 3 titles.
