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?
