Sky Germany announced a new agreement ensuring that it will remain the undisputed home of Bundesliga football through to 2021. Following a successful outcome to the German Professional Football Association's (DFL) tender process, Sky customers will enjoy 572 live matches a season from 2017/18 to 2020/21 across all platforms.
