HISTORY AND FORMAT

Kicking off in 1963, the Bundesliga is the elite football competition in Germany. It is the best-attended football league in the world and is currently ranked the fourth strongest in Europe. Matches are played at a fast pace with plenty of honest endeavour and sportsmanship. The Bundesliga tends to boast the highest goals per game ratio of the major European leagues and last season was no different. As the teams only have to play 34 league matches and participate in one domestic knock-out cup, the DFB Pokal, players are able to remain fresh all the way to the end of the season

Format-wise, 18 teams take part in the competition each year with the top three entering the Champions League directly; the fourth placed side enters preliminary qualifying. At the other end of the table, the bottom two teams are automatically relegated, whilst the team in 16th place plays a two-legged relegation playoff with the team finishing third in the 2. Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich are the most successful team in the history of the competition with 29 titles to their name. They are the current holders of the Meisterschale and will face Bayer Leverkusen in the final of the Pokal. The Bundesliga all-time top scorer is Gerd Muller, with 365 goals.
