Bundesliga: live stream and TV channels: How to watch every game
German football is back as the Bundesliga becomes the first major league to restart amid the ongoing pandemic.
Germany’s top-flight football season will return under strict health and safety rules and with no fans attending games, a move that the Premier League are likely to follow in the coming weeks.
The season picks up with reigning champions Bayern Munich having a four-point lead over Borussia Dortmund at the top.
Live European football is set to return to TV screens on May 16 as the Bundesliga restarts behind-closed-doors.
Like the Premier League, the Bundesliga has been suspended since March due to the Coronavirus outbreak, but unlike in England, professional sides in Germany have been training since mid-April.
Divided into small groups and under strict conditions, including extensive Covid-19 testing of all players and coaching staff, players have been allowed to continue to train and prepare for a restart.
Below is how fans in the UK and US can watch the action live.
