After Sky broadcast the first Bundesliga conference on German television almost 20 years ago on August 12, 2000, the pay broadcaster does not let this tradition rest even in the football-free period.
Because no football will be played until April 30th due to the coronavirus pandemic, Sky continues from Saturday “according to the original schedule, the Bundesliga season with historical duels and a currently live ‘hisTOOOR Sky Conference'”, like Sky on Thursday announced. The format is planned until the Bundesliga starts playing again.
Whether the legendary 4: 4 in the district derby between Borussia Dortmund and FC Schalke 04 in November 2017, the spectacular 7: 4 of Schalke against Bayer Leverkusen (February 2006) or the 3: 3 between FC Bayern Munich and Fortuna Dusseldorf from the previous season : through the “hisTOOORische Sky Conference” fans can relive the best games of the past years on the coming Saturdays from 3 p.m. In addition, other spectacular games will be shown in a newly produced live conference. From 6.30 p.m. there will be a top match of the match day as on every Bundesliga Saturday.
At the start of the weekend, Sky will show the games from 3:30 p.m. that, according to the game schedule, would have actually been on the program – compiled from the best duels between the respective clubs in recent years.
The matches include Bayer 04 Leverkusen – VfL Wolfsburg (season 2014/15), RB Leipzig – Hertha BSC (2018/19), TSG 1899 Hoffenheim – 1. FC KOln (2017/18), 1. FC Union Berlin – 1. FSV Mainz 05 (2001/02) and FC Augsburg – SC Paderborn (2014/15). This is followed by one of the past top games between Borussia Dortmund and FC Bayern.
From 3 p.m., moderator Michael Leopold and Sky expert Dietmar Hamann will get the audience in the mood for Sky Sport Bundesliga 2 HD. Kai Dittmann, Hansi Kupper, Roland Evers, Toni Tomic and Jonas Friedrich comment on the five games live from the conference studio.
