Looking to watch the German variety of Die Roten Bullen? Here’s how to watch RB Leipzig on US TV and streaming.

One of Germany’s rising clubs

RB Leipzig was created under controversial circumstances and remains divisive, but nonetheless has become a top side in Germany. Officially called RasenBallsport Leipzig, as sponsors in club names are forbidden in Germany, these Red Bulls came about in 2009 after purchasing the playing license of fifth-tier SSV Markranstädt and renaming them. Four promotions in just seven seasons saw the club march into the Bundesliga – and immediately became a contender. They finished second in their first season. As of 2023, they’ve yet to win the league – Bayern Munich’s stunning decade-plus streak of dominance has prevented that. But Leipzig have finished no worse than sixth in any season to date, and have earned a place in Europe each season. They’ve also won the DFB-Pokal multiple times.
