Messi is likely to make his debut in PSG's second game of the season this weekend after he declared "I am ready to start now" in a recent press conference. PSG host Strasbourg on Saturday, 14th August with the game kicking-off at 8pm BST.
It's unlikely to be a taxing game for Messi or the star-studded PSG side -- Strasbourg finished 15th out of 20 teams in Ligue 1 last season and lost their first game of season at home to Angers 2-0, leaving them bottom of the league.
BT Sport own the rights to Ligue 1 games in the UK, so it's the place to go to watch his first game.
Other upcoming PSG fixtures include:
PSG unveiled Messi on Wednesday morning, with the Argentine affirming his aim to win silverware with the club and the Champions League is at the top of his list.
He's primed to form one of the most dangerous attacking tridents in world football with Kylian Mbappe and former Barca colleague Neymar.

The Argentina international will don the number 30 shirt number 30 shirt, having allegedly rejected Neymar's offer to take the iconic number 10 shirt, as the pair look to reunite.
Messi has reportedly agreed a two-year contract that includes the option for a third and will see him earn at least €25million per year. Not too shabby that, eh?
During a tearful press conference on Sunday, the 34-year-old said an emotional goodbye to the Catalans after 21 years, 34 major trophies and 672 goals in 778 appearances.
But will he be able to replicate that same form in a PSG strip? Only time will tell.
