Werder Bremen are one of the best known brands to come out of the Bundesliga. The club is one of the four to win a domestic double, taking home the Bundesliga and German Cup titles in 2004.
Founded in 1899, Bremen was one of the founding members of the Bundesliga. Their trophy case is filled with 10 domestic titles - four Bundesliga, six German Cups - but the green and whites do not have the same strong track record in Europe - the 1992 Cup Winners cup and the 1992 Intertoto Cup are the only UEFA trophies they have. They still play in the Weserstadion, the oldest stadium in the Bundesliga. For all news and updates on Werder Bremen, look through DW's collated content below.
The Bundesliga kicked off with a bang on as Borussia Dortmund took advantage of Bayern's slip-up on opening night. There was also a baptism of fire for Union Berlin as they hosted Bundesliga football for the first time.

Bayern Munich's six consecutive titles have been marked by finding any way to win. That hasn't always been the case this term, but their 1-0 win over a stubborn Werder Bremen team bore the hallmarks of a champion side.
Werder Bremen have long searched for the coach that would lead them back to glory since the departure of Thomas Schaaf. With the consistency Florian Kohfeldt has brought to the club this season, the search is now over.
