Bayern Munich's ten consecutive titles is a record in the five main European leagues (Germany, France, England, Spain, Italy), but in some less prominent national competitions of Europe there are teams with better runs, as a Munich newspaper has taken care to point out.
"If you do the maths properly, there are eleven teams in Europe who have won ten or more titles in a row before FC Bayern," says Süddeutsche Zeitung.
Skonto Riga were champions in the Estonian League 14 times in a row, between 1991 and 2004, as were Lincoln Red Imps in Gibraltar between 2003 and 2016.
Rosenborg won the Norwegian League 13 times in a row between 1992 and 2004. Bate Borisov had a similar series in Belarus between 2006 and 2018 and Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia between 2006 and 2016. The newspaper adds a further fact by stating that even in Germany Bayern do not hold the record alone, but share it with Dinamo Berlin, considered the team of the secret police, who won the league in the defunct GDR between 1979 and 1988.
In any case, with 32 German titles - including one in 1932, long before the Bundesliga was founded - Bayern are unbeatable.
If the GDR is included, it is followed by Dynamo Berlin with ten titles. Then there is Nuremberg with nine, currently in the second division, which curiously holds the record for relegation. They have been relegated eight times.
Of the teams that have some current relevance, the one that follows Bayern is Borussia Dortmund with eight German titles.
