Bundesliga returns Only on StarTimes and ends football slumber.
By Our Reporter
When the German football league, the DFL, announced that the Bundesliga would return on May 16, it was music to football fans’ ears after a long football hiatus.
The league had been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. Early April, German club players started training again. And as of now, Bundesliga is the first and only major football league to be back in action.
As the Bundesliga strategic partner, digital TV operator StarTimes will broadcast all matches live and exclusive in Africa.
StarTimes Brand & Marketing Director IsmaLule says, “It has been a tough period for football fans around the world. We were very happy to have StarTimes bring back live football in Africa. Bundesliga is one of the best leagues in the world. It is a pleasure to watch these great clubs, Bayern, Dortmund, Schalke04, and others play again.”
All matches are being broadcast on five sport channels on StarTimes, live and in HD, and on the streaming mobile application StarTimes ON, so top fans can watch games concurrently on several devices and won’t miss one minute of action. A series of strict protective measures were implemented to avoid the spread of the virus and all games are being played behind closed doors.
