August 4th will be the date for the Ligue 1 kick-off in the new season. Last years champions AS Monaco will play against Toulouse. On August 5th at 17.00 the next match in the new season will be played, and that will be between PSG and Amiens SC.
Amiens SC is a new team in the French top league, and everyone expects their opening match against PSG to be a simple win for PSG. It will probably turn into that, but anything can happen. The match will be played at the home field of PSG, Parc des Princes, and if you want to be there to taste the atmosphere, buy your tickets for the match right away.
The French league will be the first one to start of the top leagues in Europe. The Premier League in England will only have its kick-off one week later, and the German Bundesliga will keep its fans waiting even longer. Luckily fans of French football doesn’t have to wait much, only 1 1/2 week, and then it will be the kick-off for the new French football season.
That might be handy, as it gives the teams more time to play before the big tournaments like the Champions League and the Europe League will start.
Will PSG win Ligue 1 this year?
Last year everyone was surprised that PSG did not win Ligue 1. For the first time in years, another team won the league. AS Monaco was the team to dethrone PSG, but can they keep their place at the top of French football for two seasons in a row? We doubt it, but they have managed to keep quite some of their star players remain in the squad, so maybe AS Monaco will surprise us again?
Would you like to watch PSG play live?
There are lots of other great programs and activities to enjoy while in Paris. After all, the world is more than football. So, why don’t you book a river cruise with dinner, some tickets for the Moulin Rogue, pay a visit to the Eiffel Tower, and enjoy some culture at the Louvre museum? The options are uncountable, but that is what makes Paris such a magic city.
