Soccer begins its return

sntv is delighted that other soccer leagues are soon to follow the Bundesliga movement with La Liga, Serie A, English Premier League, and J. League all taking their first steps to return. 


Bundesliga was the first of Europe’s major soccer leagues to return with matches being played behind closed doors. Our coverage includes training, press conferences, highlights, and post-match reaction for all matches throughout the season.

We will be offering news coverage, including press conferences and post-match reaction from these and other selected matches.
