Under 17 Fußball-Bundesliga - History

History

The league was formed in 2007, when the five U 17 Regionalligas merged to form the three Bundesligas as follows:

  • Under 17 Bundesliga North/Northeast formed from:
    • Under 17 Regionalliga North
    • Under 17 Regionalliga Northeast
  • Under 17 Bundesliga South/Southwest formed from:
    • Under 17 Regionalliga South
    • Under 17 Regionalliga Southwest
  • Under 17 Bundesliga West formed from:
    • Under 17 Regionalliga West

As such, the German Football Association followed the example it had set with the Under 19 Bundesligas in 2004, which were reorganised in the same fashion.

The Regionalligas itself had only been formed in 2000, to replace an even more regionalised system with separate leagues for every regional football association.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The only history is a mere question of one’s struggle inside oneself. But that is the joy of it. One need neither discover Americas nor conquer nations, and yet one has as great a work as Columbus or Alexander, to do.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    A poet’s object is not to tell what actually happened but what could or would happen either probably or inevitably.... For this reason poetry is something more scientific and serious than history, because poetry tends to give general truths while history gives particular facts.
    Aristotle (384–323 B.C.)

    Spain is an overflow of sombreness ... a strong and threatening tide of history meets you at the frontier.
    Wyndham Lewis (1882–1957)
