The founding members of this were Werder Bremen, Schalke 04, FC Koln, Hertha BSC, Hamburger SV, Eintracht Frankfurt and VfB Stuttgart. Also, they have most recently welcomed RB Leipzig back in 2016.

    2nd March 2017. By Danni Biggs
    The well-known teams that are Werder Bremen, Wolfsburg and Hamburg are up against each other to avoid dropping to Bundesliga relegation zone this 2016/17 season. Currently, Werder and Wolfsburg are on level points while Hamburg is 2 points below and sitting in 16th place and are all in a fight to stay above the Bundesliga relegation zone. On Friday we saw Bremen grab a 2-1 win against fellow strugglers Wolfsburg, which saw them rise above the dreaded bottom two.

  4. Kyriakos Papadopoulos: Proving His Former Team's Wrong with Hamburg

    17th February 2017. By Edward Stratmann.
    Kyriakos Papadopoulos continued his strong form with Hamburg since joining on loan in January by scoring against a former employer for the second Bundesliga match in a row.

    Firstly in matchday 19, he scored the winner against Bayer Leverkusen, the club that currently owns him. And then, on the weekend, he came back to haunt RB Leipzig ,who only afforded him one 27 minute appearance throughout his loan there for the first half of this season, by finding the back of the net with a towering header. Indeed, Papadopoulos' demonstrative celebration, where he sprinted towards the sideline to flex his bicep at the Leipzig crowd, certainly showed there's no love lost between him and the Red Bulls.

    Importantly, struggling Hamburg didn't concede on their way

  5. Alen Halilovic Joins Las Palmas After Tough Spell in Germany

    27th January 2017. By Edward Stratmann.
    After a decent spell on loan at Sporting Gijon last season, where he produced plenty of glimpses of his extraordinary talent, Alen Halilovic returned to Barcelona hoping to kick on with the Catalan giants.

     

    But despite Halilovic and his agent stating the player's intentions to stay with Barca and fight for a place in the squad, they quickly came to a realisation that with such fierce competition, from the likes of Lionel Messi, Arda Turan, Denis Suarez, Andres Iniesta and countryman Ivan Rakitic for a place, a move away would be best for his development.

     

    Following plenty of consideration, Halilovic chose to join Hamburg for a transfer fee of €5.5 million that included a buyback clause of €10 million for Barca

  6. Bayern Munich Tightens Hold on Bundesliga Title Race 2015/16

    Wolfsburg scored a massive victory, Borussia Dortmund snapped their seven-game winning streak, and Bayern Munich continued to avoid defeats in the 13th week of the Bundesliga title race 2015/16. The Bavarians are widening their lead over the rest of the table, with Dortmund's loss allowing the defending league champions to move from a five-point advantage to an eight-point lead. With 12 wins and only one draw on their record this season,
    Munich already seem like a foregone conclusion to clinch yet another German football championship next spring.

    Bayern were in-form in their away fixture against Schalke 04, winning 3-1 to improve both their point total and their goal difference. Even with their star striker, Robert Lewandowski, going scoreless, the Bavarians still racked up three goals, including a last-minute contribution from Thomas Muller. Anyone waiting for the wearers of the Bayern Munich home jersey 2015/16 to show signs of weakness is going to keep waiting,

  7. Bayern and Borussia Back on Top after Opening Week of 2015 Season

    In 2013 2014, the German Bundesliga season ended with Bayern Munich as the champions, Borussia Dortmund as the runners-up, and Schalke 04 in third place. Bayer Leverkusen and VfL Wolfsburg rounded out the top five. Now, in the wake of the opening week of 2015 - 2016 Bundesliga play, it's as if we've found a time warp back to the 2013 2014 season, for how similar today's standings look like the final rankings from that season.

    Indeed, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and Schalke 04 are the opening week's top three performing football clubs. Bayer Leverkusen, meanwhile, are in fifth, while VfL Wolfsburg are just outside the top five, at sixth place. Talk about déjà vu.

    Two Returns to the Top

    For Bayern Munich, returning to the top of the Bundesliga table is more or less a foregone conclusion at this point. The soccer club has won 25 German championship titles since inception, including six of the past 10
