Franchise FC Are the games still going ahead after the VID scare this week ?

I need to confirm my BT Sport subscription if so.


Yes - all still going ahead except Dresden-Hannover in the 2. Bundesliga.

My German team is VfL Bochum, as my A level German exchange school was in Bochum and my exchange partner was a big fan, so I adopted them, although the exchange was outside of the season so I didn't get to a game.

My only experience of live football in Germany to date was Hertha Berlin v Wolfsburg (0-0). Keen to go back to Germany and see more football there when Brum jnr is older

Agreed yesterday that if the season has to be stopped again and cannot restart, then the table as of the time the season is stopped will be used. Only went through 10 clubs to 8 but only a simple majority was required which has annoyed Werder Bremen particularly as they are 17th.

Interesting then that Dresden's position could actually get better by not playing, on the basis that they would then settle things on PPG. Dresden are bottom on GD, but will move up the table on PPG if the likes of Bochum and Wiesbaden lose matches.

All kicking off here about Bundesliga TV rights. Most games are on Sky but a couple of packages were bought by Discovery a couple of years back - they sub-licenced this to DAZN this year as they decided that it wasn't cost effective for them i.e. not enough people were happy to buy the Eurosport player to watch them.

Discovery have decided to try and cancel the contract now using force majeure and the German football league are trying to honour the deal with DAZN but DAZN usually use Eurosport's infrastructure to broadcast the games.

Still unclear if Monday nights game between Bremen and Leverkusen can be shown here (assume available internationally) but the hope is DAZN will be able to show games from the following weekend at worst.

Baaaah !
Sky Sports Score App is already hacking me off.

According to the app commentary
Augsburg equalise 1-1
Augsburg score again
Augsburg goal disallowed (rightly, obviously) by VAR

According to the score in the app
Augsburg 2 Wolfsburg 1. THAT’S NOT THE CASE ...... yet
