The 1997–98 Fußball-Bundesliga was the 35th season of the Bundesliga, Germany's premier football league. It began on 1 August 1997[1] and ended on 9 May 1998.[2] FC Bayern Munich were the defending champions.

Competition modus[edit]

Every team played two games against each other team, one at home and one away. Teams received three points for a win and one point for a draw. If two or more teams were tied on points, places were determined by goal difference and, if still tied, by goals scored. The team with the most points were crowned champions while the three teams with the least points were relegated to 2. Bundesliga.

Team changes to 1996–97[edit]

Fortuna Düsseldorf, SC Freiburg and FC St. Pauli were relegated to the 2. Bundesliga after finishing in the last three places. They were replaced by 1. FC Kaiserslautern, VfL Wolfsburg and Hertha BSC.
