How to watch German Bundesliga games live in the US without cable

Soccer fans can watch games live on Fox Sports. No cable subscription necessary.

Normally at this point in the sports calendar in the US, the baseball season is starting to hit its stride, the NBA Draft is held and major tournaments in golf and tennis are taking place. With the coronavirus pandemic suspending or outright canceling sports in the US and around the world, leagues have been slow to resume play.

If you're starved for live sports, you have a few options, as some sports have returned. NASCAR has resumed racing, PGA golf is back on tour and professional baseball from Korea can be found on ESPN. If stock cars, golf and the KBO don't do it for you, can I interest you in German soccer? Germany's Bundeliga was the first major soccer league to resume its season -- since followed by the Premier League getting back on the pitch -- and you can watch games live on Fox Sports. 

When are Bundesliga games on TV?

Saturday marks the final match day of the Bundesliga season. Bayern Munich has already clinched the title, but there are still some things to be decided on Saturday, from qualifying for the Champions League to avoiding relegation. All of Saturday's games take place at the same time, and three will be shown live in the US. 

Games are shown live in the US on Fox Sports. Germany is six to nine hours ahead of the US, so afternoon matches in Germany are shown live in the mornings in the US. Games are shown on FS1, FS2 and Fox Soccer Plus. 

Here's the broadcast schedule (all times ET):

Saturday, June 27

  • 9:30 a.m. on FS1: Wolfsburg vs. Bayern Munich
  • 9:30 a.m. on FS2: Dortmund vs. Hoffenheim
  • 9:30 a.m. on Fox Soccer Plus: Augsburg vs. RB Leipzig

If you don't have a cable or satellite TV subscription, you can watch Bundesliga games with one of the live TV services below. And if you subscribe to one of these streaming services, you'll be able to authenticate your account to also watch live on the Fox Sport website or app.
