Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich start time

Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich starts at 12 p.m. Eastern, 5 p.m. BST and 9 a.m. Pacific, today (Sunday, May 17).

It's almost game time and the Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich live stream looks to be a highlight of this big Bundesliga 2019/2020 weekend, as live German soccer/football takes to screens everywhere to sate the needs of sports fans wanting entertaining competition.

Emanating from the Stadion An der Alten Försterei on Sunday, we in America have a much easier time watching Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich than we did the KBO Korean baseball games that take place during the wee hours of the morning and late at night. At this is at noon Eastern and 9 a.m. Pacific.

The game, taking place behind closed doors in an empty arena, sees Bayern on a mission to keep their leadership position on the big board, 4 points above Borussia Dortmund. Can Die Eisernen (aka FC Union Berlin) continue their positive momentum and put a dent in the table-leaders?

Even if all of this English about German football sounds like Greek to you, you too can live stream Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich, as we all try to figure out if foreign sport will prove a suitable alternative until the MLB and NBA can figure out a plan. 

How can I use a VPN to watch Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich?

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 Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich 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.
