The Bundesliga, also referred to as Fußball-Bundesliga, is the primary football competition in Germany. It was founded by the German Football Association in the year 1962, and its first season was played in 1963.

Bundesliga is contested by 18 of the best clubs in Germany. Each team faces the 17 others two times per season, which lasts from August to May.

The competition has undergone various structural changes since its formation. Initially, a Bundesliga win awarded a club 2 points, whereas a draw was worth 1 point, and a loss worth none.

The team with the most number of points following the completion of all the 360 matches wins the title.
