From Friday, the 2000th matchday in the history of the Bundesliga is on the program. An overview before the anniversary about important figures and facts.
17.969 * – The German elite class has seen so many games since the first game in August 1963. At the outcome of all these encounters, the home advantage was actually very important. Finally, 9052 games were won by the hosts (50.4 percent). 4316 games went to the guests (24 percent), 4601 encounters ended with a draw (25.6 percent).
34 – After this number everything is actually aligned. But one season did not always end after 34th game days. In the first two seasons there were 16 teams at the start, it only went until the 30th matchday. And after reunification, the league experienced 38 laps for a season.
3.06 – That is the average of the gates achieved per game. This takes a total of 54,987 goals that were to be admired. The 32nd matchday in the 1983/84 season also emerged – then 53 goals were scored. This seems to be a record for eternity, because no other matchday was more than 47 goals. By the way, the fewest hits were recorded on match day 2689/90 and in round 20 of the 1998/99 season – only eleven times the play equipment found the way into the goal.
O * – In fact, there has never been a game day on which all away teams could win. The guests were close to the 6th matchday of the 2019/20 season with eight away victories. There were nine home victories on seven match days, most recently in round 19 of the 1989/90 season. The highest number of draws on a match day was seven – last on match day 21 of the 2020/21 season.
485.210 * – Never made more fans in the stadiums than on matchday 33 of the 2009/10 season. On average, 53,912 spectators were in the nine stadiums. Incidentally, that was a May 1st – on which no games are now taking place due to the overload of the police. The Corona pandemic ensured the negative figures among visitors – zero spectators were recorded on 37 match days.

829 * – After so many match days, record champions Bayern Munich was at the top of the table. The view of second place shows what dimensions this record has. There Borussia Dortmund ranks with “only” 179 match days. Hannover 96 is located in the “south” of the table. After 110 match days, the Lower Saxony held the red lantern in their hands, followed by Schalke 04 (105) and Hertha BSC (95).
3 * – So many coaches were rid of their jobs in the maximum after a match day. However, this was three times – on match day 11 1983/84, on match day 27 1991/92 and on matchday 19 2006/07. The “victims” included Dietrich Weise, Felix Magath and Jupp Heynckes.
8 * – This number of professionals was sent prematurely on the 3rd matchday of the 2013/14 season. There has never been any more in one round. By the way, Helmut Rahn saw the first red card. The “boss” caught it on matchday 4 of the premiere season 1963/64. There was at least one place of space on over half of the game days (55.6 percent).
2.51 * – So many penalty have been imposed on average per match day. The 12th round of the 1971/72 season holds the record. On this matchday, the referees pointed to the point twelve times. The shooters have failed most frequently on the 7th matchday of the 2016/17 season when five penalty were not used.
