Fans need not worry about missing any of the action, with a truly stellar broadcast production ready to bring fans closer to the game. As football’s innovation leader, the Bundesliga will be rolling out the latest technology to ensure every minute of this crucial game is covered.

25 cameras will capture all the on-field drama, with additional insights also provided by the likes of corner flag cams, unique to the Bundesliga, drones for spectacular overhead shots, and a remote-controlled mini ultra-slow-motion camera to be used to capture goals, shots and the emotions of players around the game’s defining moments.

The global TV production will once again use Augmented Reality technology to illustrate various graphics such as the team line-ups and statistics, while 16 broadcasters from around the globe will be going live from inside the stadium.

Those looking to share the excitement with fellow fans will be able to visit thousands of cafés and bars across the world who will be showing the match. In addition, over 50 official Viewing Parties have been organised by the clubs, media partners and the Bundesliga.

Several other large-scale events are being organised across the world by clubs in locations such as Houston, USA, the metropoles of New Delhi, India, Jakarta, Indonesia, Dubai, UAE and Beijing, China, as well as Warszawa in Poland.

Around these viewings, family friendly activities will take place, including football tournaments, coaching sessions and the guest appearance of some of the players who have played central roles in Klassiker’s down the years.

As part of bringing together fans of both teams from across the world, fan reactions from these official parties will be captured and shared on both the Bundesliga’s and the clubs’ official social media channels on the matchday.
