The 2014–15 Bundesliga was the 52nd season of the Bundesliga, Germany's premier football competition. The season started on 22 August 2014 and the final matchday took place on 23 May 2015. Bayern Munich won their 25th German title on 26 April 2015.

Background

Bayern Munich came into the season as defending champions, winning the championship on 25 March 2014 against Hertha BSC. Armin Veh announced that he was leaving Eintracht Frankfurt during the 2013–14 season. He had demanded that that the club invest more money in the squad. Thomas Schaaf replaced Veh. Bayer Leverkusen sacked Sami Hyypiä during the 2013–14 season. Sascha Lewandowski was named interim manager. Lewandowski's interim reign lasted until the end of the season when Roger Schmidt took over. Other managerial changes include Kasper Hjulmand at 1. FSV Mainz 05 and Armin Veh replacing Huub Stevens at VfB Stuttgart. Every club received their licence. The league schedule came out on 24 June with Bayern Munich facing VfL Wolfsburg in the opening fixture on 22 August.

Teams

A total of 18 teams will contest the league, 16 sides from the 2013–14 season and the two sides directly promoted from the 2013–14 2. Fußball-Bundesliga season: 1. FC Köln and SC Paderborn 07. The final participant was decided by a two-legged play-off, in which the 16th-placed Bundesliga club Hamburger SV defeated the team who finished third in 2. Bundesliga, SpVgg Greuther Fürth.
