Last updated: August 12, 2020
With multiple United States Men’s National Team members currently on German club rosters, being able to find Bundesliga games on TV, radio, and the Internet is certainly important to many soccer fans here in America. Thankfully, there are several ways to access these matches, whether you’re looking to keep tabs on a USMNT player, or you want to watch an exciting game with some of the best stadium atmospheres in the world.
Where to watch the Bundesliga on US TV
In September 2020, ESPN+ will embark on its inaugural season as the US home to the Bundesliga, Germany’s top professional soccer league. Most weekends, the vast majority of games will be streamed via ESPN+, the subscription-only streaming service. But at $5.99 per month, it’s a steal.
The Bundesliga season consists of 306 matches played from September to May. The games from 2 Bundesliga are expected to be streamed on ESPN+, too.
On the Spanish-language side, ESPN+ also has the exclusive rights to the German Bundesliga.

Where to watch the Bundesliga on US streaming
Beginning with the 2020/21 season, ESPN+ has the exclusive rights to the German Bundesliga league in both English- and Spanish-languages. That means that previous rights holders FOX Sports and Univision will no longer have the rights.
As of press time, ESPN plans to broadcast a minimum of four Bundesliga games on U.S. television each season. For more insight, here’s everything you need to know about the new US rights deal.
The 2020/21 Bundesliga season is the first under the new rights deal with ESPN. It’s part of the six-year agreement that will end at the close of the 2025-26 season.
Bundesliga games on the radio
British radio station Talksport 2 often provides free coverage of live Bundesliga matches via TuneIn.
Sirius XM FC broadcasts a select number of Bundesliga games live on its satellite radio network.
German cup competitions
Each August, the German Super Cup final, featuring the league champions against the winners of the DFB-Pokal, is expected to be shown either on ESPN or ESPN+.
The German Cup, also known as the DFB-Pokal, is the preeminent annual knockout competition in German football. The Cup is considered the second-most important club competition in the country after the Bundesliga. 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.
