French soccer’s championship trophy between the country’s league and cup winners will be held on Sunday, July 31, at Tel Aviv’s Bloomfield Stadium.

The match will be between Paris Saint-Germain F.C. and FC Nantes.

Last August, French champions Lille defeated trophy holders Paris Saint-Germain in front of 30,000 fans at Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv.

The match will be broadcast to millions of viewers in 140 countries around the world.

The game is being held in partnership with the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) and is part of a series of joint initiatives by philanthropist and businessman Sylvan Adams and Comtec group to bring the world’s largest sports and leisure events to Israel.

The teams are set to arrive several days before the match and will stay at hotels in Tel Aviv. They are scheduled to train at complexes in central Israel. Each will have a final training session on Saturday, July 30, at Bloomfield Stadium, after which the traditional pre-game press conference will be held.

The match will be refereed by an Israeli team of FIFA-certified referees.
