FOX Sports’ Bundesliga presentations on Saturday, Nov. 19, and Sunday, Nov. 20, set new season highs on the FOX broadcast network and FS1, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Bayern Munich’s first Bundesliga loss of the season to Borussia Dortmund delivered 426,000 viewers Saturday on FOX, making it the most-watched Bundesliga match on the broadcast network this season. The next day, Hoffenheim extended its unbeaten start in the Bundesliga to an 11th game with a 2-2 draw against Hamburg, and delivered 102,000 viewers on FS1, making it the most-watched Bundesliga match ever on the channel.

Bayer Leverkusen against Bayern Munich to be televised on FOX network on April 15
Bayern Munich’s game away to Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, April 15 will be televised live on the over-the-air FOX network in the United States.

As of writing, Bayern Munich is running away with the title after creating a 13-point lead atop the Bundesliga table. Bayer Leverkusen, meanwhile, are an incredible 33 points behind the league leaders. Leverkusen currently sits in twelfth place in the league and are closer to relegation than they are to qualifying for Europe.

While it’s good news that FOX has decided to televise the Leverkusen-Bayern Munich game on the over-the-air network, it would have been far better if FOX would have selected this weekend’s Der Klassiker between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Instead, that game will be televised on Saturday, April 8 on FS1.

Nevertheless, the Leverkusen-Bayern game should be entertaining to watch. And it’ll be followed by the MLS game between Orlando City and LA Galaxy at 3pm ET. Perhaps that’s why FOX chose to elevate Leverkusen-Bayern Munich to FOX instead of trying to feature Bayern Munich vs. Dortmund on a bigger channel?

Good job following the FOX coverage man. I think the Bundesliga has a difficult time in the United States; it takes some dedication to wake up early enough to watch, especially on the Best Coast. And even on the east coast if I go to a public establishment to watch I feel like the only one there.

Maybe Easter weekend makes this match easier to cover on the regular FOX channel? Though I feel like even on Easter there would usually be some kind of stupid redneck sport competing for coverage :roll:

Univision Deportes sublicenses Bundesliga TV rights from FOX Deportes for 3 years
Univision Deportes today announced that it has sublicensed the Spanish-language TV rights in the United States from FOX Deportes for the next three years.

Under the terms of the agreement, FOX Deportes will still broadcast Bundesliga matches in Spanish, but Univision Deportes will air three matches per week across Univision Deportes Network and UniMas as it has been doing for several weeks for this season after getting the broadcasts that GolTV used to air.

Recently, the November 1 match on UniMás between Hertha Berlin and Bayern Munich was the most-viewed Bundesliga match on any network, regardless of language, in the current Bundesliga season among Adults 18-49. With Univision broadcasting Bundesliga matches on US television this season, the Bundesliga has finally been able to unlock how to make the league a success in the United States. The viewing number for the Hertha Berlin-Bayern Munich game was 220,000 viewers (153,000 on UniMas and 67,000 on FS1).

In addition to sharing the Spanish-language Bundesliga rights with FOX Deportes, including bringing more than 20 matches to UniMás – the most from the top German soccer league to ever air on a U.S. broadcast network – Univision Deportes will telecast a weekly preview show on UDN, while also providing fans a total recap of the week’s matches on Monday evenings with a new show called “Somos Bundesliga.” Univision Deportes also has engaged in a content partnership with Bayern Munich, which recently opened an office in the U.S., to bring behind the scenes access and regular interviews with key players, particularly Latin ones, to viewers.



The deal that Univision Deportes has agreed with FOX Sports will see the Spanish-language games for the Bundesliga split between Univision Deportes Network and FOX Deportes until the end of the 2019/20 season, which will be the same time that the English-language rights held by FOX Sports will end.Univision Deportes also has the US media rights to Liga MX, MLS, Copa MX, CONCACAF Champions League, the US Men’s National Team and the Mexican National Team. Plus, in 2018 Univision Deportes will add the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League to its roster of marquee club soccer tournaments.

Did South America really take in that many Germans after WWII? :lol:

Joking aside, I wonder what the deal is. Presumably South Americans are more into futbol than North Americans are.

Did James play in that match. If so, most of the viewers were probably from his home town....

Discontent with FOX’s Bundesliga coverage continues
If it’s not MLS, it seems that FOX Sports isn’t interested in giving other soccer leagues it has the rights to much coverage or publicity. That’s the message the TV network is sending to soccer fans in the United States.

After FOX Sports lost the rights to the UEFA Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League all inside the last 12 months, the only European soccer league the U.S. broadcaster has the rights to is the Bundesliga, which FOX has had since 2015. While not broadcasting any other European club soccer competitions, you would expect the broadcaster to be able to focus more attention on the top-flight German league than ever before, but the opposite has been true.

Frustratingly for soccer fans in the United States, the past few weeks have seen FOX Sports broadcasting more Bundesliga games on FS2 than usual. While the number of games on FS2 is on a par with last season, FOX Sports has eliminated much of the typical pre-game, half-time and post-match studio analysis that we’re used to seeing on the network. It’s reached the point where soccer fans switch on a Bundesliga game not knowing if there’ll be any studio coverage at all.

So far this season, there’s only been one Bundesliga game televised on the over-the-air FOX network. Presumably there will be a few more games televised on big FOX before the season ends, but in comparison to the 2015/16 season when FOX televised more than eight matches on over-the-air FOX, it seems that the level of commitment by FOX to the Bundesliga is sinking.

We reached out to the Bundesliga and FOX Sports for comment, but before we get to that, there’s other concerning news.

As is the norm for every major broadcaster in the United States that televises soccer, the broadcaster’s public relations (PR) department will reach out on a weekly basis with updates on coverage, schedules and press releases to encourage the soccer and TV industry media in the United States to promote the coverage of a league. However, that isn’t the case anymore with FOX Sports’ coverage of the Bundesliga.

The last time FOX Sports issued a press release to promote their coverage of the Bundesliga was more than 18 months ago when it distributed a media alert on August 14, 2017.

And since 2015, the amount of press releases issued by FOX about the Bundesliga coverage has dropped from a high of 13 in 2016 to zero in 2018. At the same time, while the FOX Sports PR department has effectively given the Bundesliga the cold shoulder, the PR department has been focusing all of its soccer-related efforts in trying to pump up MLS, US Men’s National Team and US Women’s National Team (see chart below).The irony is that this Bundesliga season has been the most entertaining one in years with a more open title race, an influx of American youth getting valuable minutes as well as many exciting high quality games.


FOX’s seemingly decreasing interest in promoting their coverage of the Bundesliga hasn’t gone unnoticed by soccer fans in the United States.World Soccer Talk reached out to the Bundesliga for comment to find out what the league is doing to try to encourage FOX Sports to broadcast more of the league on FS1 and over-the-air FOX.

“We have a very positive and open partnership with FOX who have been key to increasing coverage of the Bundesliga in the USA,” said Bundesliga Executive Vice President Strategy Arne Rees. “With such a competitive marketplace, especially within the US, we are always pushing our media partners to do more in terms of coverage, marketing and promotion. We understand that all of our partners have their own strategic priorities, but rest assured we are working hard to ensure the Bundesliga gets the coverage it deserves as we continue our drive to reach as many fans as possible across the world.”

FOX Sports declined to comment.The challenge for FOX Sports is that the Bundesliga isn’t a top priority for the broadcaster. When the rights were acquired for the start of the 2015/16 season, it was part of a global deal that was thrust upon the executives in the United States. FOX Sports in the United States didn’t proactively acquire the rights for the region, so there hasn’t been the buy-in since day one from the executives in Los Angeles.

At the same time, FOX Sports has treated the Bundesliga as filler. For example, prioritizing wall-to-wall coverage of NASCAR over the German league. As a result, almost all of the Bundesliga games televised on English-language TV during the past few weeks have been slotted on FS2, which has a much smaller distribution as well as not being available to many cable subscribers in the United States.

The Bundesliga and FOX Sports find themselves in a catch 22 where viewership for NASCAR is greater than the Bundesliga on FOX Sports. So from a business point-of-a-view, it makes perfect sense to broadcast the NASCAR over the Bundesliga on FS1. The challenge, however, is that it’s a vicious circle for the German league. The Bundesliga can’t grow its audience if it continues being cast aside on FS2. And timing is an issue too. Oftentimes, the most exciting time of the season is January and February when the races for the title and Champions League qualification heat up. But for the Bundesliga and FOX Sports, it’s also the time of the year when NASCAR monopolizes much of the TV time on FS1.

If there is a light at the end of the tunnel, the actual studio talent (when used) and commentators have been working diligently to make the Bundesliga coverage as strong as they possibly can. When the talent is on-air, their commentating and analysis have been better than they’ve been before on U.S. television. But the studio talent and commentators can only do so much. Without the help of the FOX Sports company itself trying to increase the awareness of the coverage, the Bundesliga will continue to be overlooked and underserved.

The Bundesliga just isn’t a good fit for FOX Sports, and FOX is not a good fit for the German league.

FOX’s current contract for the US rights to the Bundesliga ends in May 2020.

overall SUCH a disappointment with Fox's handling of the Bundesliga - really a let down, especially compared to what NBC has done with the Premier League. Thank god for SKY Go and a good VPN... :wink:
