The Bundesliga for Beginners.

Germany is known for more than just beer and ridiculously delicious würst, its Bundesliga is a formidable force in the current state of football.

Bundesliga 1

What is the Bundesliga?

To put it simply, the Bundesliga is the top-flight of football in Germany, where 18 clubs compete to win the Meisterschale (The Champion’s plate). Admittedly there is only 1 team that is not named Bayern München won the Plate for the last decade, but the Bundesliga is still a very entertaining League to watch.

The Bundesliga is composed of two divisions: The Bundesliga and the 2. Bundesliga, which have been the stated second tier of German football since 1974. The 3.Liga was created in 2008, which is also a professional league but is rarely referred to as Bundesliga because they are managed by the German Football Association (GFA) instead of the German Football League. 

Ranking below the 3.Liga, leagues are subdivided on a regional basis. Prominently the Regionallligen consists of Nord, Nordost, Süd, Südwest and West divions.

The Bundesliga is alluring since there are tons of benefits just for participating in the top divisions.

  • Most of the television broadcast revenues go to the Bundesliga

  • Bundesliga teams attract a broader number of supports from fans, which also means that they are more prone to get advertisement contracts, more revenues from fans seating.

  • Teams of the Bundesliga create more financial benefits hence the combination of gate revenues, television shares, sponsorships, and the marketing of their brand.

The making of the Bundesliga 

The top flight of German football was established in 1963 by the German Football Association (Organized in 2001 by DFL- Deutsche Fußball Liga) where the most prestigious teams of German would gather under one League. Thus naming the second division the 2.Bundesliga Before the creation of the Bundesliga, the German Football scene is almost non-existence, since most of the matches were being played in an amateur sense.

The idea of creating a functioning body of professional football has emerged in the 1950s, the idea is backed up by the state of the transfer market at the time. Most of Germany’s best talents were being dragged away from the amateur leagues, proposing more financial benefits and a competitive scene for the players.

The German’s international performance dwindling drastically because they’d have no chance against professional teams from other countries. Thus urging for a professional league.

The bitter defeat of the national team against Yugoslavia in the 1962’s World Cup quarter-final is the final straw that broke the camel’s back. At the annual DFB convention under the newly elected DFB president Hermann Gösmann, the Bundesliga was created on 28 July 1962 at the Westfalenhallen. 

The format and ruling of the Bundesliga

Just like every big league in the world, the Bundesligas’ standing is dictated by the points system. Each team in the league faces every other club once at home and once at their respective opponents’.  For each victory they get 3 points, each team gets 1 for a draw, and naturally, none for losing.

*The Top 4 teams are qualified for the Champions League, 5th and 6th are qualified for the UEFA Europa League.

Bundesliga’s standing as of the time of the writing of this article.

Explanation of the Bundesliga’s table: 

  1. GF: Goal for = Goal scored

  2. GA: Goal against = Goal conceded

  3. GD: Goal different = Different between Goal For and Goal Against        (+ means they score more than being scored/ - means they got scored more than the score)

If both teams are equal on points the following criteria:

  •  Goal different for the entire season

  • Total goals scored for the entire season

  • Head to Head results

  • Head to Head goals scored

  • Head to Head away goals scored

  • Total away goals scored for the entire season

In case both teams are still equal after all that. Both teams will play a playoff match to decide the eventual winner. 

Reward for the champion:

The ultimate champion will get rewarded a meisterschale(obviously) and besides a bedazzling €100 million in prize money which is taken from the TV-deal. The reward is also based on how long has the team been competing in the league, especially the top flight.

 

Bayern München winning the Meisterschale in 2019

The captivating points of the Bundesliga.

  • The domestic fan service: The clubs receive huge support domestically, because of the beautiful football played an amazing fan service, as in cheap ticket prices, the clubs’ assistance with the cost of away travel, the assuring feeling of being taken care of is also a major factor in the fan’s royal with the club.

  • The absolute dominance of Bayern München in the modern section of the Bundesliga. Throughout its history, “Holywood FC” has netted a whopping 30 Meisterschalen, whilst the second most frequent victors of the league have yet to reach the second digit. You’ve read it right, Bayern München is the absolute dominator of the league, squelching everybody with their overwhelming attacking power. Thus making most matches against them a David vs Goliath scenario.

  • The underdogs, In the last decade there is only one team not named Bayern München who has lifted the Meisterschale. The BVB Dortmund with their creditable manager, Jürgen Klopp or fondly called Kloppo by football fans. The squad has defied all odds with their reckless football style, managed by a then young and wild Klopp to secure the championship against the colossal Bayern München. They then process to win the DFB-Pokal and complete the Domestic Double.

Gerd Müller, Picture by worldfootball.net

Longest range goal of the Bundesliga: The title belongs to Mortiz Stoppelkamp, he scored against Hannover from 82 meters away. Mind you, the length of the Football field is 125 meters, which also means that he scored shooting from his side of the field. 

Fastest goal: Karim Bellarabi and Kevin Volland both tied for this title as of now, they scored at exactly 9.0 second into the game.

Longest unbeaten run: This belongs to the 2012/2013 Bayern München who reign invincible for an entirety of 53 matches.

Longest losing run: Nuremberg, on the other hand, is currently the bearer of the longest losing streak for a staggering 11 consecutive Bundesliga losses.
