Sport1 to continue to broadcast German youth football

German sports broadcaster Sport1 has agreed a new deal with the German Football Association (DFB) for rights to a selection of youth competitions in 2019.

The platform-neutral rights are for the: semi-finals and final of the German Championship A-Juniors; final of the German Championship B-juniors; and Juniors DFB Cup final. All matches will take place in May and June of this year.

Last year, Sport1 acquired a package of rights to the men’s DFB-Pokal for the first time in a three-season deal, from 2019 to 2021-22.
