Where to Watch Bundesliga 2023 Anywhere in the World

The Bundesliga is sometimes known as the Fußball-Bundesliga. The Bundesliga is Germany’s primary football competition and is graded as the top of the German football league system. The Bundesliga has 18 teams. The seasons generally last from August through May. Most games are played on Saturdays and Sundays, with a few played on weekdays. The DFB-Pokal is open to all Bundesliga clubs. The Bundesliga champion advances to the DFL-Supercup.

If you are a German football fan, you would be looking to watch the games online no matter where you belong to. In this guide, I will guide you on how you can watch all Bundesliga games and highlights online.

How to Live Stream Bundesliga anywhere in the World

Bundesliga has worldwide broadcasters. But, there is no guarantee that you can access your favorite club’s game on your local broadcaster. So, a VPN is always there to aid you and provide you with a limitless connection to every online streaming service worldwide. For example, if you want to connect to an American broadcaster, you can do it with the help of a VPN. A VPN relocates you to the demanded place, and that’s how you can access any club’s game you need.

Here is how it will work:

  1. Check out the TV schedule of the game you want to stream online.
  2. You don’t need a VPN if the channel is your local broadcaster.
  3. If the games are out of your reach, then subscribe to a VPN. For example, your favorite club’s game may be on ESPN+ while you are in Portugal. That way, you won’t get access to ESPN+.
  4. After subscribing to a VPN, clear the cache and cookies from your browser.
  5. Launch the VPN and change your location to the US.
  6. Now login to EPSN+ and enjoy the live streaming of your favorite club.

Note: You would have to sign up if you don’t already have a subscription to ESPN+

The same steps apply to every channel and game, no matter where you are.

Live Stream Bundesliga on ESPN+ (US Broadcaster)

ESPN+ is the official broadcaster of the German Bundesliga in the USA. So if you are in the USA you can watch most of the games. But if you are outside the US and want to access the network, you must relocate. In short, a US IP will be needed to change your location in this scenario.

Here is our complete guide on how to watch sports on ESPN+ abroad.

Watch Bundesliga Online on BT Sport (UK Broadcaster)

After ESPN+, I would recommend BT Sports, as it also has a lot of games for you. If you are a resident of UK and Ireland, you can access it without additional services like VPN. Additionally, you don’t need to have BT Broadband to access this sports channel. A monthly pass is enough to solve all your problems. After subscribing to the monthly pass, you can easily set up the BT Sport app quickly.

If you are outside UK & Ireland here is how you can access it abroad.

Watch Highlights of Bundesliga Matches on YoutubeTV

If you are waiting for the grand finale and not interested in regular games, you would never want to miss out on the highlights, no matter how busy you are. The official Bundesliga Youtube Channel or the official Germany football channel brings you the highlights of every game. It has much more than that; for example, you can watch live coverage of a few DFB-Pokal games.

Bundesliga Schedule (2022-23)

German football league Bundesliga will start on August 5, 2022 and conclude on May 27, 2023. You can check out the complete Bundesliga schedule on the official website.

Can I watch the Italian Serie BKT with the VPN

DAZN Italy and RAI Sport provide Serie BKT live stream. So, if you already have a VPN connect to the Italian server and enjoy the games live.

Can I access the Bundesliga on a Sky Germany or Fox Sports feed with English commentary

Yes, if you already have a VPN, you can access Sky Germany Streams by relocating your server to any German territory. Similarly, you can also watch the games on Fox Sports. But remember that you would need a prior subscription to those networks.

Bundesliga Competition Format

Bundesliga is the top league for Germans as the fate to compete in other top European leagues are based on the positions on the table.

How Points are assigned to Each Club

Every club plays every other club twice, once at home and once away from home. Originally, a victory assigned two points, one point for a tie, and a zero point for a defeat.

Since the 1995-96 season, a win has been worth three points, a draw is for one point, and a defeat is worth zero points. At the end of the season, the club with the most points wins the German championship.

Currently, the top four clubs in the table qualify automatically for the UEFA Champions League group stage. The last two clubs are relegated to the 2. Bundesliga, while the top two teams in the 2. Bundesliga are promoted back to Bundesliga in the following season.

The 16th (third-last) and third-placed teams in the 2. Bundesliga compete in a two-leg play-off competition. The winner of this match will play in the Bundesliga the next season, while the loser will play in the 2. Bundesliga.

How Bundesliga Clubs are Qualified for European Competitions?

Here are the criteria for Bundesliga clubs:

1) The top 4 placed clubs qualify for UEFA Champions League group stage.
2) The club stands at 5th qualify for UEFA Europa League.
3) 6th position holder will make it to the Third qualifying round of Europa League.

Which German club can participate in UEFA Competitions?

The number of German clubs eligible to participate in UEFA competitions is decided by UEFA coefficients, which consider a country’s clubs’ results in UEFA competitions during the previous five years.

Which Club is the Most Successful in the History of Bundesliga?

Bayern Munich has been the league’s most dominating club, with 31 championships. They won their tenth straight championship last season and hope to add to their trophy collection next season. Besides this, they also have a team with more runners-up, with a count of 10.

What is the Prize Money of Bundesliga?

The prize money for Bundesliga has been rising exponentially over the past few decades. The German league has gained popularity in the UK and sold the TV broadcasting rights for hefty money.

Just like other football leagues, the organizers distribute the prize money to all 18 clubs. According to my research, 70% of total earned money is distributed to all clubs equally. While the rest of the 30 percent is given on the bases of the table standing at the end of the league.

The higher the clubs finish in the league, the more they will get. Last year the prize amount was about €1.17, which is more than the GDP of most 3rd world countries.

What is Verdiente Meistervereine in Bundesliga?

The top performers in the league are honored by the facility with a special jersey having embossed stars on it. Depending on the number of winning titles, the starts on the badges are embossed.

3 Bundesliga titles: 1 star
5 Bundesliga titles: 2 stars
10 Bundesliga titles: 3 stars
20 Bundesliga titles: 4 stars
30 Bundesliga titles: 5 stars

According to the above criteria, only Bayern Munich is the 5-star club in the league. Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Mönchengladbach have 2 stars, while Werder Bremen, Hamburger SV, and VfB Stuttgart have only one star on their badges.

Who is the most successful Bundesliga Football Player?

Gerd Müller is the most successful player in the history of Bundesliga, with a score of 365/427 in 427 appearances. He played for Bayern only throughout his career, lasting from 1965-1979.
