At DW-WORLD.DE, you can find frequent reports and background features on Germany's premier soccer league, the Bundesliga, in English. A highlight of the site is the Bundesliga game "TIP 4 THE TOP," which lets you bet on the season's games, which begin on August 6, as an individual or as part of a team. The game, first introduced during the Euro 2004 soccer championships, has already proven a favorite among thousands of users worldwide. Among the prize winners -- some of whom won signed uniforms from the German national soccer team -- were players from countries like Russia, China and Eritrea. The site also offers a live ticker of major games and scores and statistics for every game and team in the Bundesliga. You can find our Bundesliga coverage online at the following link:
