Saturday will feature a party at the Parc des Princes prior to Paris Saint-Germain’s Ligue 1 opener, but the match itself won’t have the guest of honor.

Brazilian star Neymar will not play in PSG’s league opener against Amiens after the French giants failed to finalize the 25-year-old’s transfer documents in time on Friday.

Despite Neymar’s absence from the pitch on Saturday, PSG will hold a ceremony prior to kickoff to unveil the club’s world-record signing to the sold-out crowd in France’s capital.

It is expected that the former Barcelona attacker will make his official debut with PSG on August 13 when PSG travels to Guingamp. His home debut will likely come the following weekend against Toulouse.
