Get your remote controls ready! After having cheered for your two favorite countries in the World Cup (the US and France), it’s time to renew your loyalty to your preferred club team. France’s football league la Ligue 1 is beginning a new season, and TV5 Monde plans to screen the best match of the week each Saturday at 10:55 pm (EST).
The season begins Friday, August 8th with a kick-off match between le Paris Saint-Germain–double champions of France–and Reims at the Auguste Delaune Stadium. Marseille will get back in the game the next day with a match against Bastia, and Lille (who came in 3rd for the 2013-2014 season) will host the FC Metz. Monaco and Olympique Lyonnais will play that Sunday.
