Before the Bundesliga was created, soccer was played in an amateur level, between semiprofessional regional leagues. After WWII, Germany was divided in East and West Germany.
While the East Germany created in the 50s, something called Oberliga, the West did not have a league of their own.
In 1962, after being defeated by Yugoslavia in the World Cup quarter-finals, West Germany decided to create a league of their own and the competition took off in the following year.
The German Bundesliga was founded in 24th of August of 1963. The 16 founder teams are Eintracht Braunschweig, Werder Bremen, Hamburger SV, Borussia Dortmund, FC Köln, Duisburg, Preußen Münster. FC Schalke 04
FC Kaiserslautern, FC Saarbrücken, Eintracht Frankfurt, Karlsruher SC, FC Nürnberg, TSV 1860 Munique, VfB Stuttgart and Hertha BSC.
The first goal of the Bundesliga was scored in the first game, after just 58 seconds, by Timo Konietzka of Borussia Dortmund. The first Bundesliga champion was FC Köln.
After the reunification of Germany, following the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Oberliga was regrouped into the Bundesliga. The strongest teams of the East – Dynamo Dresden and Hansa Rostock, were allowed to join the top tier.
