Sources: ESPN+ Close To Picking Up Bundesliga Rights
ESPN+ is in the "final stages of picking up Germany's Bundesliga" to add to its "growing array of soccer offerings," according to sources. A package of games is "expected to be exclusively" on the streaming service beginning in '20-21. It "remains possible there could be some games on linear TV," but an "extremely high percentage will be on ESPN+." This year, U.S. coverage of the Bundesliga will be on Fox Sports, which "includes games on FS1 and the Fox network." But the German league in the future "should become ESPN+’s top soccer driver" (N.Y. POST, 7/31).
