The German women's ice hockey Bundesliga (German: Deutsche Fraueneishockey-Liga (DFEL), or Fraueneishockey-Bundesliga) is Germany's top league in Women's ice hockey. It is organized by the Deutscher Eishockey-Bund, which governs the sport in Germany, in which 3,114 players competed in 2013.[1]

History[edit]

The German Women's Ice Hockey Bundesliga was created in 1988–89. Previously, the national championship took the form of a tournament featuring the best teams from the various regional federations. The Bundesliga was initially split into two divisions, North and South, with a final championship tournament at the end of the season, but in April 2006, the participating teams voted to have only a single division, starting from the 2006-07 season.

2017–18 season[edit]

The 2017–18 season featured 8 teams, with each team playing each of the seven others four times, twice at home. The team finishing at the top of the ranking table wins the German Championship.
