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 just missing out on the title last season and firing on all cylinders, there’s a genuine title race on this year! 

FA Cup

Current champion: Manchester City 

England’s top knockout competition never fails to entertain, with several underdogs beating the more prominent teams at various stages.  

Carabao Cup (EFL Cup)

Current champion: Manchester United 

The Carabao Cup (EFL Cup) represents another excellent knockout competition and chance for silverware for teams across England.   


Ligue 1

Current champion: PSG

Kylian Mbappé and PSG aim to win a third consecutive Ligue 1 title, though this time without the likes of Lionel Messi (now at Inter Miami in the MLS), and Neymar (playing at Al Hilal in the Saudi Pro League)—and it’s hard to look past the Parisians for the title again this season.

Coupe de France

Current champion: Lyon

While PSG is France’s dominant team, it was Lyon who took the domestic cup last season, beating Metz 2-1 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? It’s hard to look past the German champions, but Borussia Dortmund is lethal on its day, while the likes of RB Leipzig are also one of Germany’s best attacking teams. 


Current champion: RB Leipzig

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 Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 in the 2023 final to win its second DFB-Pokal title


Serie A

Current champions: Napoli

The Italians are known for their flair and passion, and Serie A is no different this season. Napoli won its first Serie A title in 33 years, ending years of stagnation since the glamorous Maradona era. But Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus, Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma and Simone Inzaghi’s Inter Milan, and Stefano Pioli’s AC Milan all have eyes on the title

Coppa Italia

Current champions: Inter Milan

Inter Milan may not have won the Serie A title, but it did secure the Coppa Italia. Juventus is the competition’s most successful club with 14 wins.


Copa del Rey

Current champions: Real Madrid

Real Madrid beat Osasuna 2-1 to claim its 20th 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, so who knows who could claim the crown next season.



Brasileirão Série A

Current champions: Palmeiras

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 2023 season, Palmeiras, Atlético Mineiro, and Flamengo—the three most recent champions—were the betting favorites for the Série A title. 

Major European competitions 

UEFA Champions League

Current champions: Manchester City

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: Sevilla

After the Champions League, the Europa League is the continent’s next-best mid-week fix of top teams competing for silverware. 

UEFA Europa Conference League

Current holders: West Ham United

The Europa Conference League is the continent’s third-tier competition. West Ham won its first European title in over 40 years with a 90th-minute winner to beat Fiorentina 2-1 in the 2023 final. 

UEFA Nations League

Current champion: Spain

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 France, and current holder Spain.


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.


Asia Cup Qatar 2023

Current champions: Qatar

Japan and Saudi Arabia may be the more successful teams of recent years, with four and three titles, respectively, but defending champion Qatar will have the chance to establish its dominance on home soil for the next edition during the Asia Cup Qatar 2023 (confusingly being held in January 2024 in the Gulf nation). Fans can live stream the draw ceremony for free on May 11 in Doha via the official Asia Cup YouTube channel.

FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023

Current champion: United States

The summer’s most exciting soccer event has arrived! Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, and the United States women’s national soccer team are ready to go for gold once again when the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks off on Thursday, July 20. The United States, England, and Germany headline the 32 teams that will take the pitch in Australia and New Zealand this summer. Could this year mark the first time a host nation wins the Women’s World Cup, or are we likely to see the U.S. do the unthinkable and become the first team (of any gender) in history to three-peat?

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+.

FIFA U-20 World Cup Argentina 2023

Current champion: Uruguay

Check out some of the world’s top youth talent as the biennial tournament gets underway in Argentina from May 20–June 11, 2023. Viewers in certain regions can watch FIFA U-20 World Cup live streams for free online 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 sixth title last season, but expect Arsenal, Manchester United, and Manchester City to push them this season.

United States

National Women’s Soccer League

Current champions: Portland Thorns

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 their first major trophy on home soil in the summer of 2022. Germany holds the record with eight titles.
