LIGUE 1. Only a few weeks left for football fans before the resumption of Ligue 1. A 2022-2023 season.
The veil on the new Ligue 1 season was lifted by the LFP this Friday, June 17 with the discovery of the brand new calendar for the 2022-2023 French championship. During the first day, the PSG, champion of France in title, will move on the lawn of Clermont, Marseille will receive Reims at the Vélodrome, Lyon will receive the promoted Ajaccio while the poster of the day will be a certain Strasbourg – Monaco.
This 2022-2023 calendar will be new and turned upside down due to the World Cup at the end of the year. The 15th day, scheduled for the weekend of November 12 and 13, 2022, will be the last day before the start of the international break for the World Cup. The resumption of the Championship (16th day) will take place on Wednesday December 28, 2022, in the form of a French “boxing day”. This special program will be followed by a 17th day of Ligue 1 which will take place on Sunday January 1, 2023. The 38th and last day of Ligue 1 has been placed on Sunday June 4, 2023.

Day 1 schedule
What is the classification of Ligue 1 2021-2022?
The 2021-2022 Ligue 1 season will have been marked by several similar excesses in several stadiums across the country and this sad epilogue, despite the joy of the Auxerrois, echoes an equally disastrous Champions League final at the Stade de France on Saturday evening. On a sporting level this time, it is PSG which has regained its place as leader of the championship, after Lille’s victory last season. With a 15-point lead, the Parisians, carried by a very impressive Kylian Mbappé, will not have shone, however, dryly eliminated from the Champions League in the round of 16 and several times put in difficulty on the grounds of Ligue 1. Olympique de Marseille, in a suspenseful battle with AS Monaco, finished in extremis in second place and qualified for the Champions League. The ASM, which will have believed until the end in the place of runner-up, therefore ends up in third position.
In the classification of this Ligue 1 2021-2022, Stade Rennais, author of a very good season, finished in fourth place, with the same number of points as Nice, but a much higher goal difference. OGC Nice, which lost a point after the excesses at the Allianz Riviera last August against OM, will have to settle for the Europa League Conference next season. Strasbourg, also the author of a historic season, let its European ticket slip away and ended its great season in sixth place, ahead of Lens then Lyon, eighth after a very mixed season.
League 1 2021 standings
In the ranking of Ligue 1 scorers, Kylian Mbappé shows that he will therefore have flown over the French championship, with impressive statistics. With 28 goals, he is ahead of Wissam Ben Yedder (As Monaco – 25 goals), Martin Terrier (Stade Rennais – 21 goals) and Moussa Dembele (Olympique Lyonnais – 21 goals) tied for third place.
It’s not just the goalscorers who count in Ligue 1. Those who provide assists to their teammates are also in the spotlight. Find above the ranking of the best passers in the French Ligue 1 championship, which still crowns a certain Kylian Mbappe (17 assists), ahead of Lionel Messi (PSG – 14 assists) and Benjamin Bourigeaud (Stade Rennais – 13 assists).
For this 2021-2022 Ligue 1 season, it is AmazonPrime which had obtained 80% of the TV rights. The new broadcaster covered 8 matches per day: the Friday evening match (9 p.m.), the Saturday afternoon match (5 p.m.), the Sunday multiplex (3 p.m.), the Sunday evening match (8:45 p.m.) and the Sunday noon meeting (1 p.m.). Amazon has also created a special channel: Pass Ligue 1. Canal + which broadcast the two other matches of each day: the Saturday evening match (9 p.m.) and the Sunday match at 5 p.m. The system should change very little for the 2022-2023 season, which will resume its rights on the weekend of August 6 and 7, 2022 and will end on June 4, 2023. Note: from May 27 to July 26, subscribers to the Prime Video’s Ligue 1 pass will not have to pay for their subscription to Amazon’s football offer.
