FOX Sports’ Bundesliga Coverage Kicks Off With Carlo Ancelotti’s Bayern Munich on FS1

The Bundesliga, Germany’s top professional soccer league, returns to FOX Sports and FOX Deportes this month with 18 teams ready to compete for the coveted Meisterschale Trophy. FOX Sports’ comprehensive Bundesliga coverage includes over 200 games across FOX, FS1, FS2, FOX Soccer Plus and FOX Deportes and all 306 games available on FOX Soccer 2GO. The new season begins Friday, Aug. 26, when German powerhouse Bayern Munich takes on Werder Bremen. Coverage begins at 2:00 PM ET on FS1 with a 30-minute pregame show hosted by Ian Joy with analysts Eric Wynalda and Jovan Kirovski. The action continues Saturday, Aug. 27, with five-time Bundesliga champions Borussia M’gladbach taking on Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez’s Bayer Leverkusen. Coverage begins at 12:00 PM ET on the FOX broadcast network with a 30-minute pregame show from Los Angeles with Joy, Wynalda, Kirovski and Brad Friedel in studio, while John Strong and Stu Holden call the action. On the Spanish-language side, FOX Deportes’ pregame coverage begins at 11:30 AM ET with John Laguna and Mariano Trujillo. Sunday’s lineup includes a clash between Hertha Berlin-Freiburg at 9:00 AM ET on FS1, and Hoffenheim-Leipzig at 11:20 AM ET on FS2.

 

The new season is expected to be highly entertaining, as Christian Pulisic, John Brooks, Bobby Wood and Fabian Johnson, who most recently represented the United States in Copa America, are all expected to start for their respective teams. Plus, returning world-renowned soccer stars Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller are looking to set new league records. On the coaching side, Carlo Ancelotti hopes to help defending champions Bayern Munich win their fifth consecutive title.

 

FOX Sports GO, the critically-acclaimed app that provides live-streaming video of FOX Sports programming, offers full presentations of the network’s Bundesliga schedule. FOX Soccer 2GO will live stream all 306 games on a direct-to-consumer subscription basis and feature full match replays for every game during the entire season.
