The football starts a little later on RTL, because beforehand the TV station shows an “RTL Aktuell Spezial”.
In Morocco, a devastating earthquake shook the region and left a trail of destruction. There are now reports of more than 800 deaths. In the midst of these tragic events, RTL is reacting with a special program for tonight, September 9, 2023. At 8:15 p.m., “RTL Aktuell Spezial”, a ten-minute program presented by presenter Roberta Bierling, will be broadcast.
This decision in no way affects the rest of the evening, although it was originally planned to start reporting on the international soccer match between Germany and Japan at exactly this time. The start of the football broadcast has now been postponed slightly to 8:25 p.m. Ball sports lovers don’t have to worry, however, as kick-off doesn’t take place until 8:45 p.m. anyway.
First “RTL Aktuell Spezial”, then the international football match
For the sake of clarity, the changed RTL program again:
8:15 p.m. – RTL Aktuell Special
8:25 p.m. – Football: Test match – Germany against Japan
00:00 – Markus Krebs live! Watch out…did you know him? (Recording)
It is not yet clear whether other major broadcasters such as ARD, ZDF, Sat.1 or ProSieben will also change their programs. However, it cannot be ruled out.
