Football set to return: How to watch and stream Bundesliga games in the UK
The German Bundesliga will be the first top European league to return to action this weekend. Here is how fans here in the United Kingdom can tune in.
The German Bundesliga will be the first top European league to return to action this weekend and fans here in the United Kingdom are expected to tune in to help quench their thirst for football.
The Barclay’s Premier League isn’t scheduled to resume until June with clubs and authorities still discussing the safest way to get matches going again so EPL supporters are set to turn their attention to the Bundesliga for the time being.
Following the enforced two month break, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has given the green light for football to return in Germany with the first fixtures being played at 2.30pm UK time on Saturday 16th May.
How to live stream
BT Sport have won the rights to show all remaining Bundesliga games here in the UK for the rest of the season so you’ll be able to watch matches on BT Sport 1, 2 and 3. BT Sport subscribers can watch all games through the red button on TV, online or via their app.
Fans can also watch Bundesliga games live online with many providers offering this service. The big game many fans will want to watch this weekend sees Borussia Dortmund take on rivals Schalke in the Revierderby at the Westfalenstadion on Saturday afternoon so I expect many will be planning to stream this match.
Supporters of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea may be keeping a close eye on Dortmund for the rest of the season as all three clubs have been strongly linked with England wonderkid Jadon Sancho.
The 20-year-old has developed into one of the hottest properties in the world following a sensational last 18 months at Dortmund that’s led to rumours of a £120m move back to the Premier League so I expect all eyes will be on the young winger over the coming weeks.
No doubt there will also be plenty of fans keen to watch German giants Bayern Munich and they’ll be looking to cement their place at the top of the table when they return to action at 5pm on Sunday with a trip to Union Berlin.
Third-placed RB Leipzig will also be hoping to get back to action with a win when they entertain Frieburg on Saturday afternoon while bottom club Paderborn travel to fellow relegation strugglers Fortuna Düsseldorf. All these games will be available to stream online.
We also have a monumental clash between the top two to look forward to later this month when Borussia Dortmund take on Bayern Munich and there is sure to be a huge interest in that match given the lack of football available right now.
