The 2. Bundesliga season kicks off Friday, August 3 as Hamburger SV host Holstein Kiel in the red-shorts first-ever match in Germany’s second division. A full slate of matches, with three on Saturday, four on Sunday and one on Monday follow to complete MatchDay One of the 2018/2019 Bundesliga season.
One of the best guides to understanding and enjoying the clubs, players and traditions of Germany’s Zweite Liga is the 2.Bundesliga Podcast. C0-hosts Jonny Walsh and Matthew Karagich, both Bundesliga Fanatic contributors, share their expertise and especially their passion for this high-quality, well-attended competition in an English language podcast that covers all the bases. Here are the places you can listen to their latest 2.Bundesliga season preview pod as well as past episodes.
The subscription streaming service Fox Soccer MatchPass will again stream ALL 2. Bundesliga matches to viewers in the United States. According to sources, the streaming will once again be bare bones — no commentary, clock or scoreline, but it is a chance to experience the excitement of the league in high-quality video and get a great feel for the atmosphere and fan commitment at Zweite Liga stadiums across Germany.
The Fanatic has already published previews for some of the sides that will compete in the 2 Bundesliga this season. We also plan much more coverage of Germany’s 2nd division.
