German: Bundesliga
Just a short skip and jump across the English Channel we land in Germany, another nation other than the UK that loves its football. In fact, the German Bundesliga is one of the Leagues in the world that has the largest average stadium attendance. Plus, all its remote viewers that can enjoy top-class football that operates in a similar way as the UK football pyramid. Meaning that there is 3 professional Leagues and 1 semi-professional one. Starting from the top we have the Bundesliga, followed with its 2 tier Bundesliga. That finishing off with the lowest level, simply known as Liga. And the semi-professional, which is the final step, the Regionalliga. However, in this article, we are only going to cover the tip of the spear, the Bundesliga, or as you might see displayed on broadcasts, Fußball-Bundesliga. So, in the mood to learn the German Bundesliga?

Quick history
Before the German Bundesliga got its foothold in professional European football, it all vent down on an amateur level. That spread across a vast amount of subdivisions. However, in 1949 the early roots of the German Bundesliga sprouted with semi-professional status. But, although the 1950s the nation craved a professional League. Especial as the nation saw their top football players getting Poached and migrated to countries that offered them a fulltime occupation as a footballer. Which put the nation in a disadvantage when paired against other nations on an international level. And it was not until 1962 the official decision where made. Where the first season of the German Bundesliga from now non-existing, Deutscher Fußball-Bund gave in season 1963/64. Which have since change organising body, and are now known as the Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL).

How many teams include in the German Bundesliga?
The German Bundesliga has not always looked the same in the number of teams competing. And some of the changes have to do with the border splitting the nation. And from 1963 to 1965 to it included 16 clubs. That got changed the following season to 18. That persisted to the start of the 1990s. Which got boosted up to 20 teams after the iron curtain fell for season 1991/92. However, it only lasted for one year and went back to house 18 teams in 1992/93. By which is the number of clubs we see today. Which seems to be the magic number for the League. Although, in 2005 an 8-point argument saw circulation by Eintracht Frankfurt chairman, Heribert Bruchhagen to increase the League to 20 clubs. That got denied due to increased cost. But also by a 73% “NO” vote from fans.

A season of German Bundesliga
As the German Bundesliga has a direct link to the rest of the football in Europe, a season relies on the same foundation as other Leagues. Where the clubs play each other 2 times, once at home and once on the away pitch. Effectively meaning a round-robin tournament competition. And the same comparison can get done when it comes to promotion and relegation. Where 2 teams that are dragging in the bottom will trade places with the 2 top teams from 2nd level Bundesliga. Plus, one more spot awards after the 3rd club from the bottom plays a 2-leg tie against the equivalent team from the 2nd Bundesliga. All this elapse during a regular season stretching from August to the coming May.

Who owns the League?
Before 1998 all clubs in the German Bundesliga was only allowed to run by the “member association” or Clubs in a no-profit setup. However, all this changed in October of the same year, allowing private or limited companies to inject cash into the organisation. Although, there is still some associated red tape connected to the leagues such as the “50+1” rule or more precise, a clause. Meaning that, for a club to receive a compete-licence, the “members” or clubs have to oversee 50% control of the shares. With 1 share allocated to the investors. Although one exception may apply. Which says that if a separate entity has funded a club for more than 20 years, they may consume the amount to control the stakes. In a sense, it’s equal to how the Premier League in the UK structures, if we remove the 50+1 clause.
