In what is huge news for any Bundesliga or live sports radio aficionados, like myself, the DFL has announced that they will partner with online radio streaming service TuneIn to offer free worldwide radio coverage of the Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga.
Every match from both leagues will be broadcast in German to every country on the globe, with two select games each week available in English. One of each of these matches will also have full production produced by TalkSport, which I'm hoping includes both pre-game and post-game coverage and analysis of the match. However, on that front we'll have to wait and see.
The DFL are of course extremely excited by this opportunity to extend their global appeal.
"TuneIn allows us to further extend the reach of Bundesliga, providing live games and content to now even more Bundesliga fans from all over the world,"... "With Bundesliga games on TuneIn, fans will be able to catch the action even when they are on-the-go and without access to a live video signal." - Kay Dammholz, VP Sales Audiovisual Rights of DFL Sports Enterprises.
In case you're wondering when you can start listening to this sweet honey good goldness in English, the answer to that is tomorrow when Bayern Munich meet Borussia Mönchengladbach at Borussia Park before again catching Saturday's late match between Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha Berlin. For those of you who can run with the German feeds, you've got 36 hours of content to listen to this weekend. Chop Chop. I expect full reports.
