Report: Date Set For the 2020-21 Ligue 1 Season

You have to go all the way back to February 29, to find the last time Paris Saint-Germain played a Ligue 1 match.

On that day, PSG defeated Dijon FCO 4-0 at the Parc des Princes with goals from Pablo Sarabia, a brace from Kylian Mbappé, and Mauro Icardi.

As you know, the 2019-20 Ligue 1 season would be canceled in late April due to the coronavirus, and PSG won their ninth title in history.

For now, all PSG supporters have to look forward to is the Coupe de France against AS Saint-Étienne, the Coupe de la Ligue against Olympique Lyonnais, and the resumption of the UEFA Champions League, which are supposed to take place in August.

Late summer is shaping up to be a busy time for Les Parisiens because according to journalist Robin Bairner, the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season will begin on August 23.

This puts PSG in a difficult position because ideally, they would like to give the players a break after a gauntlet of matches to start the month. That will still likely happen with some starters, which means some of PSG’s fringe players and academy products may get some playing time for a few Ligue 1 matches at least.
