The World Cup is of course the largest and most popular football competition in the world. Every four years, World Cup fever takes over the fanatics from all over the world. But in club football you can enjoy the best matches from all over the world almost every day of the year.
Shortly after the World Cup, there are plenty of club football matches to watch. Since the World Cup is traditionally held in the summer, fans usually have to wait about a month for more competitive matches. However, as the current competition is held in the winter months, club matches will resume much earlier.
Every player at the World Cup also plays for a club team. For example, the Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi plays for Paris Saint-Germain in France. Christian Pulisic, the most popular player in the US, plays for Chelsea in the English Premier League.
Fans in the US tuning in to the World Cup may want to start with Major League Soccer. It is, after all, the pinnacle of American club football. However, a vast majority of the top USMNT players currently play with teams in Europe. In fact, only one regular starter currently plays for coach Gregg Berhalter’s USA team in the MLS. The competition will also not resume until the end of February.
Premier League has six USMNT stars
Along with Pulisic, five other USMNT stars play in the English Premier League. Matt Turner (Arsenal), Tyler Adams (Leeds), Tim Ream (Fulham), Antonee Robinson (Fulham) and Brenden Aaronson (Leeds) all play regularly for their British teams.
The Premier League will resume their schedule on Monday, December 26. If you’re not familiar, the Premier League is the most popular club football league in the world and features many of the top talent from the best football nations around the world.
Premier League clubs will return to action on Tuesday, however, the 20th of December to 22. In fact, Manchester City will face Liverpool on Thursday 22nd December in a midweek action in the English League Cup.
More than just the Premier League on tap after the World Cup
For those who want to experience other top club leagues and cup competitions, Spain’s LaLiga, Italy’s Serie A, France’s Ligue 1 and Germany’s Bundesliga are all widely regarded as some of the best leagues in the world.
LaLiga boasts two of the most popular clubs in the world in Barcelona and Real Madrid. The Spanish league will start again on Thursday, December 29. The French Ligue 1 resumes the day before on Wednesday, December 28.
Fans will have to wait a little longer to see Serie A and Bundesliga matches. These two leagues will resume in January.
Meanwhile, the English championship has already returned with matches every weekend.
