Munich – Good news for TSV 1860 fans: Next season, 86 of the 380 matches in the third division will be broadcast for free on the third programs – including many of the Lions. The cult club of Grünwalder Strasse was the TV champion in the third division last season with 16 free TV matches.
The reason: Lions gravitate as ever and are also popular beyond city limits, explains BR when asked by AZ: “Because lions also attract above-average interest from other fringes of the ARD, they come relatively often to the train “. The next season is also planned on a similar scale as the previous season. However, the exact conditions are set at short notice and according to the scheduling of match days by the German Football Association.
