Premier League

Current champion: Manchester City

The fierce competition in the Premier League is what makes it one of the world’s most exciting leagues. This season’s title race looks wide open—Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool all have a decent shot at dethroning the current champion, Manchester City. With Mikel Arteta’s young Arsenal side firing on all cylinders, there’s a genuine title race on this year! 

FA Cup

Current champion: Liverpool

England’s top knockout competition never fails to entertain, with several underdogs beating the more prominent teams at various stages. Holders Liverpool has won the domestic cup eight times. 


Ligue 1

Current champion: PSG

PSG reclaimed the Ligue 1 title from Lille with a stacked squad that included Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé, and Messi’s former Barcelona teammate Neymar—and it’s hard to look past the Parisians for the title again this season.

Coupe de France

Current champion: Nantes

While PSG is France’s dominant team, it was Nantes who took the domestic cup last season, beating Nice 1-0 in the final. However, don’t discount wild cards like Monaco, Marseille, or Lille to make deep runs in the competition. 



Current champion: Bayern Munich

Can anyone beat Bayern Munich to lift the Meisterschale? Even without Erling Haaland (now leading the line for Manchester City) Borussia Dortmund is lethal on its day, while the likes of RB Leipzig are also one of Germany’s best attacking teams. 


Current champion: Borussia Dortmund

Bayern Munich is naturally the favorite for the German domestic knockout cup. Still, Bayern Leverkusen, and Eintracht Frankfurt have reached the finals in recent years—and the current champion is RB Leipzig, who beat Freiburg 4–2 on penalties in the 2022 final to win its first DFB-Pokal title


Serie A

Current champions: AC Milan

The Italians are known for their flair and passion, and Serie A is no different this season. AC Milan won its first Serie A title in 11 years, ending years of stagnation. But Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus, Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma and Simone Inzaghi’s Inter Milan all have eyes on the title

Coppa Italia

Current champions: Inter Milan

Inter Milan just missed out on the league title to crosstown rivals AC Milan, but it did secure the Coppa Italia. Juventus is the competition’s most successful club with fourteen wins.


La Liga

Current champions: Atlético Madrid

Real Madrid won its 35th La Liga title last season and is ready and reloaded to go again. Atlético Madrid and Barcelona are the biggest contenders, despite the latter currently in a rebuild under manager and hometown hero Xavi. Will Karim Benzema continue his fine form in front of goal for Real? Or will Diego Simeone, reunited with forward Antoine Griezmann (who played his best football under Simeone at Atlético), capitalize to defend the title? 

Copa del Rey

Current champions: Real Betis

Real Betis beat Sevilla 5-4 on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra time for its third Copa del Rey title. The beauty of the domestic cup is that there’s always a chance for a plucky underdog to create an upset and take all the glory.


Brasileirão Série A

Current champions: Atlético Mineiro

Joga bonito—“the beautiful game”—is at the heart of Brazilian football, where style, flair, and individual brilliance are almost as important as the final result. Going into the 2022 season, Atlético Mineiro and Flamengo—the two most recent champions—were the betting favorites for the Série A title, but Palmeiras have so far been riding their luck up the table to make a title challenge. 

Major European competitions 

UEFA Champions League

Current champions: Real Madrid

Europe’s premier mid-week competition has produced truly unforgettable games and moments as the best teams across the continent go head to head.

UEFA Europa League

Current holders: Eintracht Frankfurt

After the Champions League, the Europa League is the continent’s next-best mid-week fix of top teams competing for silverware. Top teams in the competition this season include Marseille, Lazio, Napoli, and Bayern Leverkusen.

UEFA Europa Conference League

Current holders: AS Roma

The Europa Conference League is the continent’s third-tier competition. José Mourinho’s AS Roma won the inaugural competition last season—the Italian club’s first European silverware—beating Rotterdam club Feyenoord at the Arena Kombëtare in Tirana, Albania. 

UEFA Nations League

Current champion: France

Europe’s newest cup competition is a chance to see new national rivalries emerge, so make sure you know how to securely stream all the best games. Portugal was the inaugural Nations League champion, followed by current holder France.


Africa Cup of Nations

Current champions: Senegal

Africa’s premier competition takes place every two years, pitting the best talent from across the continent against each other. Egypt is the tournament’s most successful team with seven African Cup of Nations (AFCON) titles and has Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah among its ranks. The Pharaohs were defeated by Senegal in last year’s final. Algeria, Nigeria, and Ghana are always teams to watch, with several players plying their trade for Europe’s top clubs.

Don’t forget to use your VPN to securely stream the games from broadcasters including beIN Sports and fuboTV.

FIFA World Cup 2026

Current champion: Argentina

The very first winter World Cup took place in Qatar from November 20–December 18, 2022, and delivered one of the finest World Cup final performances of all time. Even a hat-trick from Kylian Mbappe couldn’t keep France’s hopes of winning back-to-back World Cup titles alive as two-goal hero Lionel Messi and Argentina lifted the trophy after winning the penalty shootout when the match ended 3-3 after extra time. The next tournament will be jointly held across 16 cities in the USA, Canada, and Mexico from June–July 2026, with an extended format to accommodate the increase to 48 teams.

FIFA Club World Cup

Current champion: Read Madrid

Spanish champions Real Madrid aim for a record fifth FIFA Club World Cup when the tournament kicks off from February 1-11, 2023, in Morocco. Brazilian side Flamengo is the favorite to challenge them for honors, which would make them the first non-European side to win it since the tournament started. FIFA has proposed to expand the format to a 32-team men’s Club World Cup in 2025, which will then take place every four years. Viewers can watch FIFA Club World Cup live streams for free on the UK’s All 4 streaming platform and Australia’s SBS On Demand, while viewers in certain regions can also live stream the games online for free on FIFA+.

Women’s football


FA Women’s Super League

Current champions: Chelsea

Not to be outdone by their male counterparts, women’s soccer has plenty of excitement for fans of the Beautiful Game. In England’s Women’s Super League, Chelsea won its fifth title last season, but expect Arsenal, and Manchester United, and Manchester City to push them this time around.

United States

National Women’s Soccer League

Current champions: Washington Spirit

The success of the US women’s national soccer team (four Women’s World Cups, four Olympic gold medals) is predicated on the talent nurtured in its national competition, where past stars like Mia Hamm inspired a generation of players like OL Reign captain Megan Rapinoe and San Diego Wave’s Alex Morgan. Washington Spirit won its first title in 2021, with forward Trinity Rodman (daughter of NBA star Dennis Rodman) among its ranks. 

Paramount Plus lets you stream the National Women’s Soccer League—including the Challenge Cup—and offers a seven-day free trial.

Major European competitions

UEFA Women’s Euro 2022

Current champions: England

Five years on from the last edition of the tournament, the UEFA Women’s Euro is back to live stream this summer. England’s Lionesses theirfirst major trophy on home soil in the summer of 2022. Germany holds the record with eight titles.
