With the German government having given the green-light for the Bundesliga's return, fixtures will start again from 16th May.

The league will start again from matchday 26, with the marquee fixture of the Revierderby the main highlight.

The 3pm football television blackout has been lifted, so all matches will be available to watch live in the UK.

As well as TV coverage, VAVEL UK will have a preview and match report for all games in the top flight, and minute-by-minute live text coverage of many fixtures.

For people in the UK, BT Sport are showing live video of every match through their paid TV service. Two of these matches are on 'BT Sport Extra' channels, which can either be found on their app or via the red button.
