Borussia Dortmund are teaming up with streaming provider Soccerwatch.tv to offer live online broadcasts of its U17, U19 and U23 sides' home matches.
From now on, all home matches of the three teams - in the youth Bundesliga and the Regionalliga West - will be available to stream in full HD. Highlights of all matches will follow shortly after full-time.
Borussia Dortmund youth coordinator Lars Ricken is delighted about the new partnership and is confident that the broadcasts will benefit all BVB fans: ''Unfortunately, the Coronavirus means that many of our fans are unable to attend our youth team matches in person. Together with Soccerwatch.tv, we're giving them the opportunity to follow the action live on the internet.''
''We're delighted to have gained Borussia Dortmund, one of Europe's most successful clubs, as a partner. For several years now, Borussia's work in youth football has been a flagship for excellence in German football. It makes us very proud to know that BVB have taken notice of the excellent broadcast quality on Soccerwatch.tv and decided to embark on this journey together with us,'' says Soccerwatch.tv managing director Jan Taube.
The first match to be broadcast will be the U17s' encounter with SC Paderborn this Saturday, 26 September (kick-off 11:00 CET). Then, on Sunday 27 September, the U19s' match with Alemannia Aachen will also be available to stream (kick-off 11:00 CET). The first U23 match available on the platform will be the visit of FC Wegberg-Beeck on 10 October.
