Where to Watch PSG

US

The US is one of the countries that offers Ligue 1 coverage on beIN Sports. However, keep in mind that that only applies to those league matches. For example, Coupe de France contests are available in the US through Fox-affiliated outlets; the 2022-23 CdF showdown with Olympique de Marseille was shown in this country on Fox Soccer Plus.

Check out these streaming services to watch all the Ligue 1 matches featuring PSG:

  • Fubo (formerly FuboTV): This is the best streaming service for soccer fans with beIN Sports and TUDN right in its app with plans starting at $79.99/mo. Also includes 1000 hours of cloud DVR and streaming on up to 10 devices. (Fubo review)
  • Sling TV: Sling Orange + World Sports Mini is the least expensive way to get beIN Sports but there are other options. This play also provides ESPN and The Disney Channel. But you have a ton of options that allow you to get just the channels you want. Note that CBS is not available. (Sling TV review, Ligue 1 guide)
  • Vidgo: Get a bunch of channels along with access to beIN Sports Connect for $69.99/mo. Note that you will need to upgrade to get access to its DVR and that CBS is not provided. (Vidgo review)

  • YouTube TV: Provides limited access to beIN Sports channels in its Sports Plus add-on for $72.99/mo total.

All the services listed above allow you to live stream on most devices including Amazon Fire TV, Android Mobile, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iOS, Roku, and web browsers. Various smart TVs and gaming consoles are also supported, but not universally.

Elsewhere

The list of countries where you can watch PSG’s Ligue 1 matches on beIN Sports is extensive. It includes predominantly English-speaking nations such as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand as well as Turkey and numerous ones in Asia — eg, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Palestine – and Africa — eg, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Chad, Sudan, South Sudan.

This network also shows the club’s Coupe de France matches in some of those countries, but that list is much shorter. However, it does include Canada, Australia, and New Zealand as well as Turkey and Hong Kong.

With that said, many more of those countries do showcase PSG’s Champions League contests on beIN Sports as well. That list, however, does not include Canada (DAZN), Australia (Stan Sport), or New Zealand (Spark Sport).

Ligue 1

FuboTV beIN Sports
Fubo provides 9 beIN Sports channels.

Ligue 1 has been atop France’s soccer pyramid since its inaugural 1932-33 season. Although the sport had been a part of French culture for decades prior to then, professionalism had only been approved in 1930, and Ligue 1 became the country’s first professional league. It was a 20-team competition at the time although the sides were divided into a pair of 10-club groups with the winners of each playing in a final.

For the 2022-23 season, Ligue 1 also consists of 20 teams but in one table with each playing 38 matches. However, this will be the last year with that format as it will be an 18-club competition in 2023-24.

Other Competitions

All Ligue 1 sides take part in the Coupe de France. In fact, it seems like every French club does as more than 7,000 do. Four-fifths of those enter eight rounds before top-tier clubs take part. The competition’s format consists of one match per round, all hosted by one of the two sides except for the final, which is played at the 80,000-seat Stade de France.

The top Ligue 1 teams, a group that has included PSG for the past decade, also play in the UEFA Champions League while a handful of others take part in the Europa League or Europa Conference League.

PSG

In a sport that is full of historic clubs with well over a century of stories, PSG is relatively new to the party, having been founded in 1970. However, its roots do date much further than then. That is because PSG is the result of a merger between Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain; the latter of those was initially founded in 1904. Interestingly, however, Paris FC, which was founded in 1969, split back off of PSG in 1972 and has been its own entity ever since, currently competing in France’s second tier.

PSG earned promotion to France’s top division after its first season and after that split in 1972 resulted in it being pushed down a couple of levels for administrative reasons, earned two more promotions, those in back-to-back seasons. It has never been relegated on the basis of its play, but it did come close as recently as 2007-08, finishing 16th, two spots and three points above the relegation cutoff.

However, Les Parisians have dominated French football over the past decade, winning eight Ligue 1 championships, six Coupes de France, and six Coupes de la Ligue from 2012-13 to 2021-22. (The Coupe de la Ligue, France’s league cup, ceased to exist following its 2019-20 edition.)

But European success has eluded Paris Saint-Germain. Its lone European title was the 1995-96 edition of the now-defunct UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. It did reach the Champions League semifinals in 1994-95 but did not get back to that stage until 2019-20 when it advanced one step further before falling in the final. Another semifinal appearance was achieved the following season.

PSG’s biggest rival is Olympique de Marseille, a rivalry that is referred to as Le Classique. Although Paris Saint-Germain has now created a wide gap in talent between the two, their matches remain heated.

Lionel Messi headed to PSG in 2021 after a long career with Barcelona, Kylian Mbappe has been a member of the squad since joining it on loan from Monaco in 2017 and then signing a contract directly with PSG the following year, and Neymar, like Messi, went to France’s capital after having played for Barcelona; he moved there in 2017.
