Top Bundesliga game to be relocated: DFL with a secret plan!

So far, the top Bundesliga game has always been played on Saturday evenings at 6:30 p.m. But now the German Football League has developed a secret plan.

Bundesliga instead of Saturday evening show? The German Football League has drawn up a secret plan that will allow the top game in the first division to be played later. As reported by Sportbild, the kick-off from 2025 could only take place at 8:30 p.m.

A workshop of the 18 Bundesliga clubs last week also dealt with the forthcoming sale of rights from the 2025/26 season. There, Steffen Merkel, DFL director of audiovisual rights, submitted this proposal to the clubs, which, according to Sportbild information, was well received.

Although a game of the second Bundesliga is currently taking place there, which can be seen both on the pay-TV channel Sky and on free TV on Sport1, there were no protests at a subsequent workshop by the second division teams, as the second division also benefited from additional income league could benefit. However, the decisive factor will be how much money the broadcasters would pay for a Bundesliga game at prime time.

Two factors are probably decisive: on the one hand the quality of the games, on the other hand all 36 professional clubs must be convinced of the success of the new kick-off time so that it is not overturned again after a season. Because that happened before: In the 2000/01 season, Sky's predecessor, Premiere World, broadcast a Bundesliga game at 8:15 p.m., but the ratings were too bad.

Sky is open to the new idea: "As in the past, we will look at the tender as a whole and evaluate it for the upcoming rights award," said the TV broadcaster when asked by Sportbild.
