After a lengthy summer full of transfer rumours, club football is right around the corner, and teams across Europe are gearing up for action.

The Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 don't all kick off at the same time, but don't worry about that, because we've got you covered.

Here's when all the action from the top five leagues kicks off and how you can watch it.

When Does the Premier League Season Start?

The wait for the Premier League season is nearly over. Fans of English football will be able to sit back and watch the action on Friday 9 August, when Liverpool take on newly promoted Norwich City at Anfield.

There will then be a full round of fixtures over the weekend as every team begins their new season.
