If you’re looking for some serious action in a football pitch, the Bundesliga is the league to follow! The Bundesliga, the primary football competition in Germany, is home for the top German clubs, such as Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke, just to mention a few.
In total, 18 teams compete in the Bundesliga every season that runs from August through May, with a month-long winter break. The Bundesliga definitely won’t get you bored – German teams are advocates of physical, intense football and technical proficiency.
Bayern Munich demonstrates dominance in the Bundesliga by owning 27 champion titles. Borussia Dortmund and VfL Wolfsburg are among the teams that also managed to prove their superiority and were crowned champions over the last decade. Will there be someone to steal the title from the Bayern Munich this year? Do not miss a single match of the Bundesliga – you can watch it on BT Sport (UK), FOX Sports Go (U.S.), fuboTV (U.S) and Sportsnet (CA). Away from the country? Get NordVPN and stream sports from anywhere on Earth – well, except Antarctica.
Together with the English Premier League, the Spanish La Liga and the Italian Serie A, the German Bundesliga is considered to be one of the strongest football leagues in Europe. Let’s take a look at where its’ strengths come from.
Growing talents. The German Bundesliga can be proud of having one of the most developed youth systems in the world. Every club in the Bundesliga has a high-level football academy to grow future football talents. Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller, Mario Gotze, Toni Kroos and many other top-level players have gone through this German football school to show their excellence in the field we can admire today.
Ownership. The Bundesliga differs from other European leagues in terms of clubs ownership. No individual or corporation can own more than 50% of a football club, as set by the German Football Federation. The implementation of this rule brings more sustainable and less money-focussed structure, as compared to the other leagues.
Perks for the fans. The Bundesliga has the highest average attendance rate among the European leagues. This is not that surprising, as fans can enjoy the lowest ticket prices when compared to football fans in England or Spain. Moreover, more supporters are given a chance to attend the Bundesliga matches thanks to the policy of clubs to limit the number of season tickets. That means, if you are not ready to invest in the full season pass yet, you can still get single-match tickets without worrying about all the seats being taken. Last but definitely not least – when you purchase a ticket to a match, you not only get to see your team playing for the win. Match tickets often include a free rail pass, so you can experience the full “fan journey” in a relaxed atmosphere. Singing and drinking beer is totally fine!
