For Bayern Munich supporters in the United Kingdom and Ireland — along with Bundesliga fans in general in the those countries — you are in luck. The Bundesliga will be broadcast on Sky Sports for the next four seasons according to the network’s website:
Sky Sports has become the new home of the Bundesliga in the UK and Ireland after winning exclusive rights for the next four seasons. As the home of German top-flight football in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, football fans will be able to tune in to Sky Sports to watch the likes of Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham and Robert Lewandowski, while 30-time Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich look to hold off their rivals to claim another title. In addition to the Bundesliga, the rights package includes access to the German Super Cup, which is an early ‘Klassiker’ match-up, with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich going head-to-head on August 17, live on Sky Sports.
Sky Sports managing director Jonathan Licht was happy to be the broadcast home of the Bundesliga.
“We’re delighted to have acquired the rights to the Bundesliga. Sky Sports customers will have the opportunity to watch some of the best players in the world as well as some of the leading teams in Europe,” Licht said. “This new four-year agreement adds to our football offering in the UK & Ireland which already includes Premier League, EFL, Scottish Premiership and FA Women’s Super League as well as international action in the form of World Cup Qualifiers, placing Sky Sports as the home of live football.”
Bundesliga international CEO Robert Klein thinks the partnership will be great for both parties.
“This is a partnership that will deliver the best of the Bundesliga week-in, week-out, through world-class production and multi-platform coverage, from a broadcaster with a long history of creating a fantastic viewing experience,” said Klein. “This, paired with the fact that the Bundesliga is one of Europe’s highest-scoring leagues, means that fans can expect an action-packed season — featuring some of the world’s best players and the most exciting up-and-coming talent.”
