Last week, ZDF announced that it would broadcast the Champions League final on public television with German participation. This scenario has now occurred.
ZDF will broadcast the Champions League final live in Lisbon on 23 August. As the TV broadcaster announced on Wednesday, an agreement has been reached with UEFA and rights holders Sky and DAZN to be able to show the final on free TV should a German team qualify for it.
This case has now arisen with FC Bayern’s 3-0 victory over Olympique Lyon in the semi-final. You can find the match report of the second semifinal here.
