Germany’s Bundesliga restarts on Saturday, offering light at the end of the tunnel for football fans all over the world. It’s the first major European league to resume its 2019/20 season following the Covid-19 pandemic, so we know you’re as excited as we are to get back to seeing quality live sport aired at the weekends. Let’s kick-off the German title race already – here’s how to live stream the Bundesliga and watch every match from anywhere on earth.
As a quick primer, the Bundesliga is Germany’s top-tier domestic football league and things are delicately poised as the fixture list resumes this May. When the coronavirus forced the league to stop play at the beginning of March, Bayern Munich sat atop the Bundesliga table but they’re being hotly chased by Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig. Borussia Mönchengladbach also lurk dangerously, as do Bayer Leverkusen. It’s safe to say that this year’s Bundesliga season could well go down to the wire and there’s plenty of drama left – not just for fans of German football, but for lovers of the beautiful game everywhere.With that in mind, here’s how to watch a Bundesliga live stream no matter where you are in the world, including free viewing options. Follow our guide below and you’ll never miss a goal again – or pay a penny you don’t have to.

How to watch Bundesliga football from outside your country
If you’re abroad and can’t bear to miss out on the big Bundesliga restart, don’t worry. While you may initially encounter a problem watching your usual domestic coverage in the form of geo-blocking, there’s an easy solution to this common annoyance. It’s called a VPN and it’s a clever bit of software that relocates your device back to your country of origin – thereby allowing you to regain access to the services you normally use (and almost certainly pay for) back home.

Anyone from Germany currently abroad may find they can’t access the streaming services they normally would at home. This is because of geo-blocking, but as we’ve said there’s a very easy solution in the form of a VPN.VPNs aren’t foolproof, though, and content can still get blocked even if you’re relocated your device back home. Based on our experience, this is the exception rather than the rule, but it’s worth being aware of – and one of the main reasons we recommend ExpressVPN, as it offers 24/7 customer support to help you solve any server woes you may encounter.Alternatively, try entering your browser’s private or Incognito mode – this is often all it takes to fix remote connection issues.
