News in brief: Where to watch #SCFB04 – Fritz is the ref

Amazon announce details for the streaming of tonight's Bundesliga away match for the Werkself at SC Freiburg, the DFB announce the match officials and sporting managing director Rudi Völler talks about the conduct of certain players: the matchday news in brief.

Both DAZN and Amazon Prime are broadcasting Bayer 04's Bundesliga match in the Breisgau (kick-off: 20.30 CET). The latter company announced final details this morning: The live stream begins 15 minutes before kick-off and is available via the website and the Prime Video app. All Prime members in Germany and Austria can watch the game without additional costs as part of their Prime membership. Fans without a subscription have the option of a 30-day free trial of the service.

Niko and Cedric will again be covering the match on Werkself Radio. Their live commentary of the game is available free of charge at or on the Bayer 04 app.

Marco Fritz in charge of #SCFB04

As from the beginning of the restart, the German Football Association announced the match officials on the morning of the game: FIFA referee Marco Fritz from Korb is in charge of the opening fixture on Bundesliga matchday 29. He will be supported by his assistants Dominik Schaal from Tübingen and Timo Gerach from Landau. The fourth official is Arno Blos from Deizisau and Dr Felix Brych from Munich is the VAR match official.

Völler on players' conduct

Rudi Völler, sporting managing director at Bayer 04, this week spoke out about the extravagant lifestyle of certain football players. "I'm not one to moralise. But players are role models. Here a gold steak, there a couple of players who have a hairdresser flown in to the hotel on the day before the match – that's not on," said the 60-year old in Focus. "I'm surprised players aren't smarter today. At the end of the day, only hairdressers and steak flippers benefit from the cheap advertising."

Great interest in women's Bundesliga

The restart of the FLYERALARM Women's Bundesliga is proving to be very popular at home and abroad. The first matches after the break due to the coronavirus pandemic will be broadcast on television in 16 countries, including Guatemala, Panama and Mexico. The opening game after two months without play involves the double winners VfL Wolfsburg against FC Köln this afternoon (kick-off: 14.00 CET). The Bayer 04 women's team return to action tomorrow, also at 14.00 CET, with a home game against MSV Duisburg. This encounter will also be streamed on DFB TV. All games are played behind closed doors.
