How to watch Ligue 1 French football online in Australia
Fans of French football can catch most games of each Ligue 1 round live.
French football fans can watch plenty of Ligue 1 action live in Australia, including Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) games.
The 2023/24 season will see the Ligue 1 drop back to 18 clubs competing for the championship, down from 20. It's the first time there have been only 18 clubs in Ligue 1 since 2002.
Auxerre, Ajaccio, Troyes and Angers were relegated following the 2022/23 season. Le Havre and Metz will return to Ligue 1 for the 2023/24 season.
Paris Saint-Germain are the defending champions after they won a record-breaking 11th title, buy after losing Lionel Messi and rumblings about Kylian Mbappé also wanting to leave the club, another title isn't a foregone conclusion, especially after they only finished on top by 1 point last season.
