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.

As they play in the French Ligue 1, you can watch PSG games on beIN SPORTS.

Because there are only 7 games per round screened, not every PSG game might be televised, but due to the popularity of the team, you would expect that most of their games would be available to watch.
