Le Parisien report this afternoon that Paris Saint-Germain will kick off their 2022/23 Ligue 1 campaign away to Clermont, on the weekend of August 7-8.
The same fixture last season ended in a resounding victory for the eventual champions, as both Kylian Mbappé and Neymar struck hat-tricks in a 6-1 win.
The full calendar of fixtures is set to be released at the end of the week. After the opening weekend, the team will host Montpellier at the Parc des Princes before facing Monaco the two matchdays later, in what will be the first headline clash of the season.
PSG will then face Lyon on matchday 8, while the clash against Marseille will take place on October 16. The first leg of Le Classique will be played at the Parc des Princes, with the Vélodrome then hosting on February 26. The season will also finish against Clermont in Paris, with the penultimate and antepenultimate home fixtures coming against Rennes and Lyon.
This season will see a six-week-long break from November to December as a result of the World Cup in Qatar, meaning the season will end in June. The action will resume in winter on December 28 for matchday 16.
In the lead-up to the start of the season, PSG will go on a pre-season tour of Japan from July 17 to 25, with training sessions starting again at the Camp des Loges on July 4.
