Bayern Munich, by far, have been the most dominant club in the league, winning 32 titles. Last season they claimed their 10th straight title and will be looking to add to their trophy cabinet in this upcoming campaign.
The 2022/23 Bundesliga is the 60th edition of the Bundesliga, Germany’s top-flight football competition. It will commence on 5 August 2022 and will end on 27 May 2023
Current Champions, Bayern Munich will be joined by 17 others, including 2 newly-promoted Bundesliga sides, Schalke 04 and Werder Bremen who will compete, not just for the title, but for higher finishes on the final Bundesliga table. The reason is because finishing higher in the table also translates to increased Bundesliga prize money.

Bundesliga Prize Money 2022/23 Fund
Like most leagues, the Bundesliga organizers also issue prize money to participants in the league.
This money is gotten from the sold broadcast rights to international and domestic broadcast companies. The money the German league gained from TV rights has increased exponentially over the last few decades. In fact, the Bundesliga recently agreed to a four-year TV contract with the United Kingdom.
The prize is usually shared using special criteria. 70% of the money is distributed to all participating teams in the league, with each team getting an equal share. The remaining 30% is now shared based on the various team’s final league positions.
The higher on the log a club finished, the more money they will likely receive. The prize money for the last campaign was roughly €1.16 billion for all 18 teams.
