Where to watch the World Cup in Germany

2018 FIFA World Cup broadcasting rights in Germany: TV channels, OTT, streaming and radio

May 17, 2018 By Michelle Bonsu
If you're based in Germany, but aren't able to get a flight over to Russia, don't fret! LiveSoccerTV.com has all the info you need to follow die Mannchsaft this summer as they aim to conquer the World Cup.

In 2014, Germany became the first European country to win a World Cup in the Americas. Now, die Mannschaft are aiming to become just one of three nations to successfully defend their World Cup title this summer. Only Brazil and Italy have done it, and with the Azzurri failing to qualify, Germany can equal the legendary Brazil on number of titles won (5) if they can lift the title once again this year.

All eyes will be on them, and getting a ticket to head over there to Russia won't be easy. However, if you are a football fan based in Germany and can't make the trip, no worries. Here's all the info you need to stay on top of all the action starting from die Mannschaft first game against Mexico as they look to make it all the way to the final on July 15th.

When is the 2018 FIFA World Cup?

This year's edition of the famous quadrennial tournament will be played between June 14, 2018 and July 15, 2018.

2018 FIFA World Cup broadcasting rights in Germany

This year, broadcasting rights for Germany have been granted to three providers. As per reports from Frankfurt, in April, Sky Deutschland has been awarded the broadcast rights to air 25 of the 64 World Cup games. This includes all of Germany's matches and the top match of the day, as well as the knockout rounds (round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals, third-place match, and the final). Other broadcasters include ZDF, and ARD, who will be splitting coverage.

ZDF and ARD will be alternating coverage for the big event this summer. During Germany's group stage campaign, the former will cover two of die Mannschaft games (against Mexico and South Korea), while the latter will cover their clash against Sweden. Meanwhile, Sky Sport will cover all three matches as well as 22 other games over the course of the tournament for a total of 25 games.
