The new Bundesliga season is only days away as Europe’s most goal-filled league returns for its 59th edition in 2021/22, but without you it’s just a sport. You are the Bundesliga.

Whoever you are, whoever you support, it’s you who makes the Bundesliga what it is – a league that stands for passion, emotion but also respect.

You have had to watch the last season and a half from afar, but 2021/22 looks set to be a return towards normality as you once again get the chance to soak up that Bundesliga stadium atmosphere, from Munich to Dortmund, Berlin to Frankfurt, Leipzig to Mönchengladbach. Without you, it’s just a sport. #YouAreTheBundesliga

The 2021/22 season kicks-off on Friday, 13 August when champions Bayern Munich head to Borussia Mönchengladbach for one of German football’s most storied fixtures. We’ll see you there.
