The club have already pledged to raise money to restore the historic cathedral whose famous spire was destroyed during Monday's tragic fire.

In heartbreaking scenes seen around the world, the cathedral's roof was mostly destroyed by flames.

The club released a statement on Tuesday and, alongside the words, made 500 tickets available to any firefighters.

The statement read: "In the aftermath of the fire that ravaged part of the Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral, Paris Saint-Germain shares the immense emotion of all Parisians, the French people and those around the world who have been shocked and saddened by this disaster.

"The club has already started to bring together all its key stakeholders, main partners and huge community of fans both in Paris and abroad, aiming to start or participate in a series of initiatives such as fundraising events that will be part of the tremendous campaign to rebuild the cathedral in the following years.

"Paris Saint-Germain would also like to express its admiration and solidarity towards the Paris Fire Brigade, whose commitment and bravery made it possible to overcome the flames and limit the extent of the damage.

"The club will also provide support to the firefighters."

PSG are 17 points clear of Lille in Ligue 1 while Cesc Fabregas' Monaco team sit 16th just four points clear of the relegation zone.
