Bundesliga is the highest league of football in Germany, containing 18 teams, it is currently led by the Champions League winner of the 2012/2013 season, Bayern Munich, and not only by the current amount of points in the league table of Bundesliga, but also from the value of the current squad, which is estimated to be somewhere around 500 mil €.

In order for a team to advance to Bundesliga, they have to end either 1st or 2nd in the 2. Bundesliga, or finish 3rd and face the 15th team of the 1. Bundesliga in two play-off matches. The 3rd “Bundesliga”, or as we would call it the 3rd league on the pyramid of German leagues is 3. Liga, where the rules of advancing to a better league are the same in 2. Bundesliga to 1. Bundesliga. Way deeper in the lower leagues there are individual ones for every county, for example “RL Bayern”. Bundesliga (as of the 2013/2014 season) is ranked as 3rd in the UEFA Rankings, thus securing 4 Champions League and 2 Europa League spots. It is predicted that the Bundesliga will go higher in the rankings, especially when the German league has as much as 4 teams in the spring play-off, thus being Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke 04.
Our goal of this page if to give you the possibility of watching the Bundesliga giants make their way through the Champions League, same as they did the last season, with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munchen both ending up in the final stage. The top goal scorer of the 2012/2013 season is Bayer Leverkusen’s top striker Stefan Kießling , scoring 25 goals and having a total of 10 assist in just 34 matches in the Bundesliga, thus going over Robert Lewandowski just by 1 single goal.
In the current season of the Bundesliga, there are 5 players who are fighting for the title of the top scorer, and that are Adrian Ramos, Robert Lewandowski, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mario Mandzukic and yet again the last season winner Stefan Kießling, When it comes to the structures, Bundesliga has a rather amazing variety of stadiums, Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena being the most expensive one, with 74,244 seats, but still overwhelmed by Hertha BSC’s Olympiastadion which has a capacity of 74,244 and Borussia Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park, counting 80,645 seats.
The average attendance for the 2012/2013 season of Bundesliga was 42,421. The current season brought a lot of unexpected turns, for example Mario Gotze leaving Borussia Dortmund for Bayern Munchen, their biggest rival. The upcoming season of the Bundesliga also holds a big backstab, and that is Robert Lewandowski leaving Borussia Dortmund for the same rival once again. Guess that it is all about money those days.

Bundesliga is one of the few leagues that promise a great future for the young players that come out of the teams academies, but also for bringing youngsters from abroad. Some great examples are Jonathan Tah from Hamburger SV, a 17 year old defender who is an integral player for HSV. How crazy is that? Being 17 and playing every single game for a club with such great history.
Another great example is Timo Werner, the 17 year old striker for VfB Stuttgart, who’s made an impressing debut for the team, already scoring several goals for the main team in Bundesliga. There are many more examples, such as Max Meyer for Schalke 04, but I’ll let you do the research. When it comes to players that came from abroad, a great example is Alexandru Maxim, the attacking midfielder from VfB Stuttgart, who arrived from the Romanian team of Pandurii Targu-Jiu. Maxim has had an impressing debut for the team, generally from his great assists which brought a lot of wins for his team.
It’s been a pleasure to tell you my 5 cents about the Bundesliga, hope you had a good read and will enjoy our streams.
