BUNDESLIGA 2015/2016 SEASON KICKS OFF ON FOX SPORTS
FOX Sports announced that it will be bolstering its strong lineup of sports events this year with its comprehensive coverage of the Bundesliga games, the primary competition series of the German Football League. The channel has acquired a five-year rights deal with the Deutsche FußballLiga GmbH, the league association responsible for the games, making the 2015/16 season of the Bundesliga games a landmark cable TV first for most Asian countries, including the Philippines.
The Bundesliga boasts of having the highest in-arena attendance with an average per-game headcount of roughly 45,000 spectators per match, providing an electric atmosphere for German football fans. And with the highest average goals scored per match, the level of excitement of each Bundesliga game is unparalleled by its other European football counterparts. The Bundesliga currently features 18 clubs, and each club plays against the 17 other clubs twice (Home & Away), with a total of 306 matches per season. The honor of being the first hailed champions back in 1903 went to the VfB Leipzig, and the current champions FC Bayern München holds the most titles with 25, including the 2014/15 season.
The strength of the Bundesliga lies in its investment in youth player development that is reinforced by scientific training. This endeavor has paid off for Germany in the delivery of a World Cup-winning national team.
Last August 15, FOX Sports Philippines started its LIVE and exclusive coverage of the Bundesliga and will be providing 5 to 6 live matches every week, with ancillary programming comprised of highlights, replays, magazine shows and a dedicated studio team bringing you all the LIVE action from our studios in Singapore.
Watch the Bundesliga 2015/16 Season, LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on FOX Sports! Matches will air every weekend.
