Where to watch DFB-Pokal on US TV and streaming
As of 2023, ESPN+ has the exclusive rights to the German DFB-Pokal in both English and Spanish. This is similar to the Bundesliga and 2 Bundesliga, which are also found on ESPN+.
Rarely, select DFB-Pokal games may find their way onto traditional linear television. An example is the 2023 semi-final between RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt, which aired on ESPNU in addition to streaming on ESPN+.
As an aside, ESPN has a rights deal for the Bundesliga than goes through the 2025/26 season.
The DFB-Pokal, aka the German Cup, is the preeminent annual knockout competition in German soccer. The DFB-Pokal is considered the most important club cup competition in Germany. Bayern Munich has won the title more times than any other German club – well ahead of second place Werder Bremen with six titles. The first German Cup was played in 1935, and 64 teams each year participate in the competition.
