Germany’s national football league Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL) wants to launch its own app for smartphones and tablets during the forthcoming Bundesliga season.

“Digitalisation provides Bundesliga with additional opportunities to communicate even better with fans in Germany and around the globe,” DFL’s managing director Christian Seifert told German news agency dpa.

DFL plans a German and an international version of the app with news from the Bundesliga.

In the new season which commences on August 14, 2015 DFL also wants to launch a video-on-demand service. The offering dubbed Bundesliga Forever will provide fans with archive material including Bundesliga matches, season’s highlights, player portraits and background features.
