    Is this sentence correct?

    "The new Paris Saint-Germains's (PSG) advertisement campaign with Ooredoo is the most significant TV ad the club has had in the past years and it will help develop the club's brand as one of the top ten sport franchises in the world, PSG deputy CEO Frederic Longueppee has said."

    Is the above sentence grammatically correct? It is taken from a news paper story.

    It's grammatical. It's a bit long, and "in the past years" is not that common.

    Re: Is this sentence correct?

    The closing quotation marks should come after 'world'.

    ***

    Please note that a better title would have been The new PSG advertisement campaign.

    Yes, or there should be single quotes around what Frederic Longueppee said. But that's assuming the OP put quotes around his example, which only occasionally happens.
    Example:
    "'The new Paris Saint-Germains's (PSG) advertisement campaign with Ooredoo is the most significant TV ad the club has had in the past years and it will help develop the club's brand as one of the top ten sport franchises in the world', PSG deputy CEO Frederic Longueppee has said."

    "Newspaper" is one word.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
