BT Sport has signed a new deal which will enable the pay TV broadcaster to retain live German Bundesliga football in the UK and Republic of Ireland until 2021.
The new contract starts in September 2017 and will run until the end of the 2020/21 season. BT Sport will also have the rights to the annual DFL Supercup matches, German Bundesliga 2 matches, plus previews and highlights shows.
Jörg Daubitzer, managing director, DFL Sports Enterprises, said:
“We’re delighted BT Sport will continue to offer the best of German football and bring some of the best entertainment and world class players to millions of fans and households across the UK and Ireland.
“BT Sport has and will continue to be held in high regard at the DFL and that is reflected in their high quality broadcasting and reporting. We are pleased to be able to continue this well established and successful partnership.”
Last week, Sky and Eurosport were named as winners of the new set of Bundesliga TV broadcasting rights for Germany, while Amazon Prime took the German audio rights.
