Calendar, stake, TV broadcaster… Where to see the Blues of Mbappé in 2023?


After their final loss against Argentina in the World Cup, the French team returned to the field at the end of March.

Didier Deschamps will list this Thursday the names of the players brought to the return of the Blues in 2023. The coach of the France team, in office since 2012 and extended until 2026 in his functions, begins a new adventure after the defeat in World Cup final against Argentina (3-3, 4 pens to 2).

A sequence that will begin with the qualifications for Euro 2024.

What is the Blues calendar for 2023?

The return of the French team will begin next Monday in Clairefontaine with a view to the reception of the Netherlands on March 24 at the Stade de France (match sold out) and the trip to Ireland three days later.

Two meetings which will launch the qualifying campaign for Euro 2024. The Blues find themselves, in addition to the two nations mentioned, with Gibraltar and Greece, which they will face in June (16 and 19).

In September, Kylian Mbappé's partners will play at home against the Irish.

A meeting that will not take place in Saint-Denis due to the 2023 Rugby World Cup scheduled in France.

Moreover, between the Rugby World Cup and the preparation for the 2024 Olympics, the Blues will no longer play at the Stade de France for a long period.

Notice to cities wishing to host the Blues.

In addition to this meeting, the French staff is currently looking for an opponent during this period.

On October 13, a trip to the Netherlands is planned, and another friendly match will be added to the schedule.

With the resignation of Noël Le Graët as president of the FFF, the delay in programming is making the selection cringe.

In November, the Blues will challenge Gibraltar and then travel to Greece to finish qualifying for Euro 2024.

What is at stake for Kylian Mbappé's band?

Qualification for Euro 2024 and nothing else.

The deal is quite simple, you have to finish in one of the first two places in the qualifying group made up of the Netherlands, Ireland, Greece and Gibraltar.

A clear objective in the mind of Didier Deschamps and his troops.

Widely playable.

A European championship which will take place in Germany from June 14 to July 14, 2024. In total, 10 cities have been selected for the organization of the matches.

The "smallest" stadium is that of Leipzig with its 42,000 seats, while the largest structure will be the Olympiastadion in Berlin with its 70,000 seats.

The final is obviously scheduled in this stadium.

Where to see the vice-world champions this year?

Apart from the home matches at the Stade de France scheduled for March and June, the Blues will play in the provinces for the remaining home dates.

The places are to be defined, knowing that Marseille, Lyon or even Lille and Bordeaux can accommodate the selection.

Just like other enclosures (Nantes, Lens, Nice or Saint-Etienne).

In front of your television, you will have to follow our colleagues from TF1, which is the exclusive broadcaster of the French team until 2028. The television channel concluded on July 23, 2022 a “global

partnership with the French Football Federation and the UEFA.

It is therefore the end of the alternation of Blues matches between TF1 and M6 which has often trapped French viewers…
