Bundesliga Trophy:

The beautiful Meisterschale - Championship Plate, awarded to the winner of the German Bundesliga.  Plate drawing / illustration / art.

The Bundesliga trophy is awarded to the football club that finishes at the top of the German Bundesliga.

The trophy has been awarded since the establishment of the Bundesliga in 1963. However, its design dates back to 1949, when the original trophy was created for the German national championship.

The trophy, which in Germany is called the Meisterschale is a large silver plate that has the names of all the German football champions since 1903 engraved on its surface. Over time, as space for the names of champions became scarce, additional rings were added around the plate to accommodate the new winners.

The original Meisterschale remains at the German Football Museum in Dortmund, while the winning club is given a replica to keep and display.


Multiple subregional football leagues took place in Germany during the 1940s and 1950s. All these leagues operated at an amateur level of football. By the 1950s, the football clubs called for a central body for the administration of football in Germany. Eventually, 1963 was the year when Bundesliga was founded. So far, 59 editions of the league have taken place, with Bayern Munich being the most successful team in the history of the Bundesliga.


The league operates on a double round-robin format, with each team playing every other team in a home-and-away system. Each win gives three points to winners, while 1 point is awarded to a team in the case of a draw. At the end of the season, the club with the most points in the season wins the Bundesliga Title. Moreover, the bottom-ranked two teams on the points table are relegated to the lower Tier of the Bundesliga. Moreover, the third-last team on the league table plays a two-legged play-off against the third-ranked team in the second tier. The winner progresses to the top tier while the loser of the play-off moves to the second tier, 2.Bundesliga.

UEFA Champions League and Europa League:

The top-4 teams in the Bundesliga directly qualify for the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, while the 5th and 6th ranked teams play in the UEFA Europa League. The 6th-placed team competes in the third qualifying round of the Europa League.
