As more and more of the world is beginning to stay put at home, FC Bayern Munich together with Telekom has responded to the requests from many fans by making the generous decision to stream FC Bayern TV Live free. By being able to access the club’s main video content stream, which consists of team news, training videos, interviews and highlights, fans can still feel connected with the club in the current situation that requires everyone to minimise social contact.
Football and sports in general have come to a standstill as the outbreak of COVID-19 has left a gaping hole in the everyday entertainment of the average person. Hence this would be a much appreciated and welcome move among the FC Bayern fanbase. A fanbase for whom the void of no football is felt a tad deeper given the timing of the current situation. One of the best attacking Bayern sides ever was clicking into place before disaster struck in the form of the coronavirus and brought everything to a halt.
Announcing the free streaming of FCB TV, the main German account of Bayern tweeted:
#FCBayern has decided with its partner Telekom to make #FCBayernTVlive accessible to everyone free of charge for the time being. In this way, we are accommodating your wish to be able to see as much Bayern content as possible in the current situation. #MiaSanMia
Der #FCBayern hat sich mit seinem Partner Telekom dazu entschieden, #FCBayernTVlive vorerst für alle frei zugänglich anzubieten. Damit kommen wir eurem Wunsch nach, in der aktuellen Situation möglichst viele Bayern-Inhalte sehen zu können. #MiaSanMia— FC Bayern München (@FCBayern) March 16, 2020
