BT Sport will broadcast the Bundesliga until at least 2017, after extending their contract with the DFL Sports Enterprises.

With the right to show 115 live Bundesliga matches, BT will be Britain's home for German football.

Averaging over three goals a game, Germany's top division is one of the most exciting and competitive leagues in Europe.

Head of BT Sport, Simon Green, is pleased that the channel has managed to continue their coverage of German football.

“We are really thrilled that we will continue to be the home of Bundesliga for the next three seasons until 2017," he said.

Interest in the Bundesliga in England has risen by 70%, with the opportunity to watch Champions League finalists Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund as well as Bayer Leverkusen, Schalke and many others.

“Our viewers have loved the opportunity to watch live matches involving some of the most outstanding teams in Europe and pitting charismatic managers like Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp against each other," Green added.

As well as broadcasting the Bundesliga football for the next few years, BT have made the big step of securing Europe's biggest club competition. From 2015, the UEFA Champions League and Europa League will be exclusively on the channel as part of their growing coverage of European football.

BT Sport also shows football from France and Italy's top leagues.
