Good, no, GREAT news for Bundesliga fans living India! You can now get every single game online at the insanely low charge of just Rs. 200 for the entire season. Given that matchday 1 was already free, that means that fans of Bayern Munich (who make up the vast majority of readers on this blog) can catch the remaining 33 games of the season plus the Supercup for less than $3 in total.
You can sign up for the site here. It’s easy enough to sign up with your Google or Facebook account, and then you can find any Bundesliga game via the schedule. Click on it and you’ll get an option to either buy a full season pass for Rs. 199 or a single match pass for Rs. 5. Honestly, if you’re only interested in Bayern games, then 34 Bayern games would only cost Rs. 170, which is a saving. But that means you’ll have to buy a match pass every week, and you will have to pay again if you want to watch games like the Revierderby or Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig.
Honestly, this is an amazing price, so I’d recommend this for everyone who is a fan of the Bundesliga in India. The FanCode stream was excellent last week when Bayern faced Schalke, with zero stuttering and high quality throughout. There are also zero ads for the entire duration of the stream, with highlights shown at half time. Other streaming services in India generally show ads during halftime, so FanCode gets a big recommendation for keeping things ad-free.
Also, if you’re in a region that doesn’t have an official broadcaster, this would be a great way for you to tune in to an official stream at minimal cost. Just get a VPN and set the country to India, and you’ll be good to go. We recently covered a story where fans in the Middle East faced the prospect of losing their Bundesliga coverage for the upcoming season: tuning in to FanCode via VPN is an amazing solution for you guys.
Why you should pay for the Bundesliga
Of course, reading this you must be thinking — why should I pay for the Bundesliga, when I can find free streams all over the internet? Well — besides the obvious advantage of reliability — the basic answer is that, if you care about the growth of the league, especially the league’s TV deal, then you need to be watching on official channels as much as possible.
Star Sports didn’t renew their TV deal in India because they likely felt it wasn’t bringing them enough subscriptions. We HAVE to band together and prove them wrong. This goes for every country where the Bundesliga has an official broadcaster. If you’re in the United States, Bavarian Football Works gives you an affiliate link that lets you sign up and watch games on ESPN+. The more of us who sign up, the more it incentivizes the suits upstairs to invest in the league’s marketing. So please, consider paying for your Bundesliga experience. If you have the money, it’s totally worth it.
