Ligue 1 fixtures as Paris Saint-Germain to start title defence at home. The 2020-21 season will begin on August 22 and conclude on 23 May next year.
Paris Saint-Germain will begin the defence of their Ligue 1 title at home to Metz after the French Professional Football League (LFP) announced the schedule for the 2020/21 top flight.
The first round of Ligue 1 matches will take place on the weekend of 22-23 August, with the season set to conclude on 23 May next year.
PSG were awarded their seventh domestic title in eight seasons after the 2019/20 campaign was abandoned and decided on a point-per-game basis due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The abandonment move has since been questioned amid other elite divisions in Europe successfully resuming their seasons behind closed doors.
