PSG produced some dominating teams over the last decade. In fact, they managed to win the French Ligue 1 title in seven of the last nine seasons.
However, this year’s team is perhaps the most exciting squad at the Parc des Princes ever. For one, a handful of already-elite players arrived. Young stars Gianluigi Donnarumma and Achraf Hakimi arrived. Also, a veteran presence in Sergio Ramos and Georginio Wijnaldum bring Champions-League-winning pedigree to the club. Still, the prized-acquisition is arguably the greatest player to step on a field, Lionel Messi.
Adding Messi means that this PSG team will be one of the most-watched clubs around the soccer world. With a front three of Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe, Les Rouge et Bleu essentially have a fantasy team in attack. So how can we watch the trio live in action here stateside? Let’s take a look.
How to watch PSG throughout the season
BeIN SPORTS currently owns the rights to broadcast Ligue 1 games in the United States through the end of the 2023/24 season.

Along with their domestic matches, PSG also play in the UEFA Champions League. This competition will allow soccer fans to watch Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe line up together against the best clubs in all of Europe.

PSG begin their 2021/22 Champions League campaign against Club Brugge on September 15th.
No matter the competition, PSG games will certainly be a spectacle this season. Three superstars not only in the same team, but lining up together in an attacking front three is truly special.
Also, Mbappe is reportedly eyeing a move away to Real Madrid next summer. Essentially, the only chance to see this trio grace the pitch could be this season.
