The BunDucksLiga is back in style with an updated race mode that brings more drama, excitement and jaw-dropping action from the Bundesliga ducks. Now out of the water, the ducks have learnt to fly – with the help of drones! The ducks will race at full-throttle around Borussia Mönchengladbach's magnificent Borussia-Park stadium to find the next BunDucksLiga champion!
How does the BunDucksLiga 2018 work?
It’s all very simple!
- There are three rounds, each containing six ducks (well, 15 ducks in total – Gladbach are represented by a foal, Wolfsburg by a wolf and Werder Bremen by a dwarf in a lifebuoy).The best two from each preliminary round make it to the final, where the top six go head-to head.

Bayern Munich are the defending champions, having whizzed around the whirlpool fastest in 2017. However, they only came second in their Group A qualifying heat, with Mainz storming away to a clear victory.
The competition got off to a gentle start in 2016 as Darmstadt and Hertha Berlin floated into the final with the two slowest qualifying times.
The inaugural tournament began with a neck-and-neck race between Dortmund and Borussia Mönchengladbach to win the first qualifying heat.
Stay tuned for the 2018 competition. With 14 cameras filming over 14 hours’ worth of high-tech thrills and spills, voiced by the inimitable Jon Hartley, in a Bundesliga cathedral, this is not a race to miss!
