PSG or other Football Match in August

I will be in France for 10 days in August (9-18) and our group will include four boys who enjoy soccer/football. Of course my one nephew is a huge Neymar fan so would love to see PSG in action but I have no idea when they will play or how hard it is to get tickets, since I myself do not watch football. We are splitting our time between Paris and Strasbourg so we could also go to a match while in Strasbourg if the timing works. I understand they have a Ligue 1 team (but no Neymar!). Questions:

- Is there a schedule out for the next season? If not, when is it published?

- How hard is it to secure tickets to a PSG match?

- If we can't see a game in Paris, is the Stadium tour interesting for football fans? I understand there's a big PSG store by the stadium so that maybe fun for the kids.

Thank you!

It's all on the front page of the PSG website: https://www.psg.fr/ which is also the only place to buy tickets.

Thanks nomarmite, but I get an error when I click on that link. I tried to look on PSG's website before I posted here but I don't see the upcoming season schedule, maybe because it's not published yet.

Click on the link on the front page then - it takes you to the same page. I can assure you it is published, please don't suggest I'm lying just because you get a technical error.

nomarmite, We will be in Paris Friday Sept 14, leave on Monday the morning of the 17th. I apologize, but my French is non existent, and some things on the PSG website won't switch to English.

The best I can tell:

Sky Sports say PSG play St Etienne on Sept 15th at 7:00pm.

PSG website doesn't say anything about this match (that I can tell).

I understand about how fixtures come out and games get moved, for tv or Champions League and such. Is this just the case that Sky Sports is behind on this? It looks like from the PSG website they have a Champions League match scheduled on Sept 19th. Do you think PGS have already decided to move the St Etienne match and have just not posted the new date/time it yet?

Saint-Étienne think they're playing PSG on 15th: https://www.asse-stats.com/calendrier Not sure why PSG don't mention this particular match, perhaps their website team haven't got round to it (the fixture list was only released this morning).

Ligue 1 games actually get moved *because* of TV schedules, not the other way round, so if Sky say it's firm too, that's 99% likely to be true.

As posted earlier, subscribe to PSG's waiting list for on-sale dates: https://d6tizftlrpuof.cloudfront.net/live/i/… Tickets go on sale at different times for different games, usually a month or so beforehand.

I am guessing this one won't sell out, but I might be wrong, and it's still a good idea to buy tickets asap to get best seats.

Last year we attended a game in August...but there don't appear to be any happening in Paris this year that time?

Yes, I have signed up for the ticket waiting list for that match as you suggested earlier.

Thanks for the help. I mean merci.

PSG is playing Caen on 10 Aug at Parc des Princes in a 1st round championship match. Quite often in these off-season matches not all star players participate. No other games at home in August.

"Quite often in these off-season matches not all star players participate. No other games at home in August."

Actually, the match against Caen is the first match of the Ligue 1 season, not an off-season match. PSG also has a home match in August against Angers during match week 3 (which will be 24-26 August, though I don't think the actual Friday/Saturday/Sunday breakdown of individual matches is set yet).
