The wait is over. After pre-season finally ending after the FIFA Confederations Cup this summer, we are finally reunited with back to back football games from around the world, specifically Europe. The prestigious Champions League trophy will be once again fought for after Bayern Munich delivered possibly their best season ever.
With the German Bundesliga and French Ligue 1 already kicking off, and the English Premier League and Spanish La Liga starting next week, there are so many games to look forward to and with so many interesting transfers with both players and managers, this football season will be one to remember.
Jose Mourinho going back to Chelsea? A certain Sir Alex Ferguson retiring from Manchester United after a 27-year career with the Red Devils? Brazilian superstar making the huge move to F.C Barcelona and Real Madrid bringing in yet another manager in Carlo Ancelotti, there have been transfers around Europe which will make a huge impact in the football world.

UEFA Champions League (Group Stage) – September 17th & 18th
Barclays Premier League – August 17th
Spanish La Liga – August 17th
Italian Serie A – August 24th
*German Bundesliga – Kicked off August 10th
