The Bundesliga has announced that they will be the first major soccer league to confirm a return to action as the 2019/20 season will start this weekend.
Admittedly I am not a big soccer guy – but in these times of struggle – I will not be complaining. Instead I will be taking a deep dive later today to see what I can find out about #ThisLeague, gambling, & how to pick winners. Look out for a follow-up blog with some official Bundesliga picks. After all, this is another sport that we can gamble on, so let’s go out and win some money.
If you are unfamiliar with the Bundesliga – check out some facts below:
What Is The Bundesliga?
Bundelsiga is the top tier soccer league in Germany & one of the most respected leagues in all of Europe. For more information regarding the nuances of the league take a look at this article. There are some fascinating things in their such as:
“The 50+1 rule guards against this. In short, it means that clubs – and, by extension, the fans – hold a majority of their own voting rights. Under German Football League [DFL] rules, football clubs will not be allowed to play in the Bundesliga if commercial investors have more than a 49 percent stake. In essence, this means that private investors cannot take over clubs and potentially push through measures that prioritise profit over the wishes of supporters. The ruling simultaneously protects against reckless owners and safeguards the democratic customs of German clubs.”
