The English Premier League season runs from August to May and each team plays the other clubs twice, both home and away giving a 38 game season.

History

Before the Bundesliga was formed German football was played via a series of regional semi-professional leagues with a complex system of playoffs to declare a national champion. However, it was during the 1950’s when Germanys best plays began to be drawn to other professional leagues and soon calls started for the formation of a central German professional football league which was more in line with their European footballing Neighbors.

Coincidently, during this time of change in the West German footballing leagues a separate league was formed in what was then referred to as East Germany and was known as the DDR-Oberliga.

When Germany lost to Yugoslavia (0–1) in the quarter-final game of the World Cup, Chile 1962 the calls for a professional league really grew and even reached the government. 46 teams applied to be members of this new professional football league and 16 clubs were chosen to form the first Bundesliga and their success was based on previous success and financial stability. As such, 16 of the strongest semiprofessional teams across West Germany become the founding members of Germany’s first professional football league. FC Köln were the Bundesliga’s first champions during the inaugural 1963-64 season.
