Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund start time

Today (May 26) at 12:30 p.m. Eastern, 4:30 p.m. BST and 9:30 a.m. Pacific, Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund kicks off.

Are you ready with a Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund live stream? Yes, it's time for the latest anticipated fixture of the reborn Bundesliga 2019/2020 season — which pits the top teams against each other. 

The game will stream live from Signal Iduna Park (Westfalenstadion) in Dortmund, Germany. Everyone's eyes are on how the #1 (Bayern) and #2 (Dortmund) ranked clubs will manage to duke it out, and how much this game can shake up the rankings, as Bayern is on top by a mere 4 points. 

And thankfully, unlike KBO Korean baseball, it's taking place at a time that makes it easy to watch (even in the background as you work).

The game is set to take place without fans in attendance, as that is the new standard. Bayern has held onto its top rank for a little bit now, but this is Dortmund's first chance to wreak havoc directly on the leader to its face.

Even if all of my English words about German football (or, soccer, if you will) sounds like Greek (or French) to you, don't worry. I've got a complete guide to everywhere  you can watch Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund live streams around the world.

How can I use a VPN to watch Bayern vs. Dortmund?

Even if you're away from home, you can watch the big bad Bundesliga action — all while still using the services you pay for. All you need to do is get a virtual private network, or VPN. With a VPN in place, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home country, letting you access the same streaming services, even if you're in another region.

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well. Here are our top picks.


ExpressVPN: We think the speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN second to none. During our tests, we saw fast connection times, and we're impressed by the service's ability to access more than 3,000 services spread out across 160 locations in 94 countries.

How to live stream Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund in the US

Americans can catch today's Bundesliga match with a Bayern vs. Dortmund live stream on FS1. And fortunately, FS1 is widely available, on many of the live TV streaming services we recommend. 

Those start with the affordable and customizable Sling TV, where you'll want the Blue package to get FS1. Hulu with Live TV is also a solid option, as it packs exclusive originals. Sports fans will probably want to know about FuboTV, which has more sports than you could ever need.

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV is just like its name sounds: Hulu shows with live TV channels, including FS1. Chief among Hulu's latest originals is Solar Opposites, from Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. Other originals include Little Fires Everywhere, High Fidelity, Shrill, PEN15, Casual and Ramy.


Fubo.TV: The sports-centric Fubo.TV service includes FS1 in its $55 monthly package, and a cloud DVR feature lets you record matches to watch whenever you want.

How to live stream Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund in Australia

In Australia, you've got two options for getting beIN Sports, the only channel with the Bundesliga action. The best value offer is to get beIN as a part of the Kayo Sports 2 week free trial, as you also get Fox Sports and ESPN channels. That costs $24.99 per month, and is great if your normal streaming service doesn't have those other networks.

Of course, beIN Sports can be purchased separately for $19.99 per month, and they also have a free 2-week trial.
