The Bundesliga is the top professional football league of Germany. Out of the all of the European leagues, they are the ones with the highest attendance numbers. This season, the games take place from August 16th, 2019 and end on June 27th, 2020. There are 18 teams in the league and they play each other twice for a total of 34 games. Some argue that the Bundesliga is the best and you can find out for yourself. To watch from anywhere in the world, you would need a VPN. This will help you unblock geo-restrictions and blackouts.
How to Watch Bundesliga from Anywhere
As we mentioned, there are a few different providers you can use to watch the tournament. Those networks include Fox Sports, Sportsnet, BT Sport, beIN Sports, or Sky Deutschland. In this case, we are going to use Fox Sports, though you can pick any one of the channels. As long as you have the credentials for one of them, simply follow the instructions below.
- Sign up for ExpressVPN (includes a 30-day risk-free money-back guarantee).
- Download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
- Connect to a VPN server in the US so you can get coverage of the matches.
- Go to the Fox Sports site and log in. If you do not have an account then we would suggest signing up for a free trial of Sling TV or Hulu Live TV.
- Enjoy the Bundesliga matches and cheer on your favorite team.
The current season is underway. You can watch all 18 teams compete as they resume after the COVID-19 break. Bundesliga is one of the first sports leagues in the world to resume play.

Here are the teams in line for these designations as of May 16th when the season got back underway.
Qualifying for Champions League group stage:
- Bayern Munich
- Borussia Dortmund
- Borussia Mönchengladbach
- RB Leipzig
Qualifying for the Europa League group stage:

Qualifying for the Europa League second qualifying round:

Of course this list of teams will surely change in the weeks to come as the teams get back in to the thick of the season. Want to cheer on your favorite club? There are several ways to watch the games from anywhere. Here are some of the best options.
Sling TV – American website that gives you access to access to the NBC, ESPN, Fox, BeIN Sports, and more without a cable or satellite subscription. The service requires a subscription to watch. To sign up and enjoy, you need to be in the US or be connected to a US server. If you haven’t tried it yet then you can sign up for a 7 day free trial.
BT Sport – Coverage for the Bundesliga in the UK. To watch, you must have a subscription and be in the UK (or connected to a server in the UK).
BeIN Sports – In France and other countries, BeIN Sports is well known in the football world. This channel is sold in packages and streaming services like Sling TV, but you may be able to enjoy the matches without subscribing as long as you connect to a server in North Africa or the Middle East (we connected to servers in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and both worked). The broadcast may be in Arabic, but it works for watching the games. Though it is not known if the last way still works, it is worth a shot.
Sky Deutschland – Sky Sports in German. You would need a subscription and be located in Germany or connect to a German server.
Star Sports – Though it is free, it is only available in the India and Pakistani region. It can be accessed by connecting to a server that is located there.
So you see, you can watch the Bundesliga matches a number of different ways. Those channels and many more are available by using a VPN service. Just be sure the provider has a nice variety of servers all over the world like ExpressVPN, NordVPN, or PIA.
There are 2 different football (soccer for Americans) tiers in the Bundesliga. Despite its popularity, the league was only created in 1963. Of course, the East German teams were merged into the system after unification so the teams have not stayed consistent. Like all sports, there are dominant teams to keep track of.
The most successful team in the league is FC Bayem Munich with 26 titles. They are far above Borussia Mönchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund. Those teams have only won the championship 5 times a piece. You can imagine there is always excitement when one of the other teams win.
