TeamsEdit

At the end of the 2009–10 season VfL Bochum and Hertha BSC were directly relegated after finishing in the bottom two places of the league table. They were replaced by 1. FC Kaiserslautern, champions of the 2009–10 2. Bundesliga, and runners-up FC St. Pauli. Kaiserslautern returned to the Bundesliga after four years, and St. Pauli re-entered the top division after eight years.

A further place in the league was decided through a two-legged play-off. As in the previous year, 1. FC Nürnberg had to compete, although they were the Bundesliga team this time. FC Augsburg was the 2. Bundesliga's representative. Nuremberg won both matches on aggregate, 3–0, and thus defended their Bundesliga spot.

This was the first ever season since reunification without any teams from neither the former East Germany nor West Berlin since Hertha BSC was relegated.

Stadiums and locationsEdit

Several stadiums are undergoing long-term reconstruction work, among them Mercedes-Benz Arena, Millerntor-Stadion and Weserstadion. The capacities of EasyCredit-Stadion and Fritz-Walter-Stadion have also been slightly increased during the off-season, while Hamburg's biggest arena has been renamed to Imtech Arena.

Notes:

  1. Millerntor-Stadion is currently undergoing reconstruction and expansion, which is due to be finished by 2014.
  2. Mercedes-Benz Arena will be converted to a football-only stadium during the 2009–10 and 2010–11 seasons. As a consequence, the usual capacity of 58,000 is reduced to 39,950 for the 2010–11 season.
  3. Weserstadion is undergoing minor reconstruction during the season, with varying reduced capacities during that time.
