Bayern Munich are set to become the first team in Bundesliga history to be allowed to wear four stars on their shirts.

Bayern clinched their 20th Bundesliga title last weekend after gaining the single point they needed against Wolfsburg and will be permitted to add a fourth star to their shirts for next season.

Werder Bremen, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Borussia Dortmund have won the title three times since 1963 and have one star on their shirts.

Teams that have won it between five and nine times get two stars. At the moment that honour is held only by second division Borussia Mönchengladbach. Having won it 10 times, three stars are granted.

The Bavarians have now become the first club to win the Bundesliga 20 times, so will have the honour of adding a fourth star to their shirts

“Bayern are the first club to have this honour and regarding their advance on the other clubs, they will be on their own for a long time†Bundesliga director Tom Bender declared.

Bayern also won the national title in 1931/32 but that was before the Bundesliga came into being and explains why in some circles, it's said they have 21 league titles.

Hmmm. A few teams go in for this sort of thing. When Juve win their next Scudetto, it'll be their 30th overall and they're planning to add an extra star on their kit. 3 stars all up each representing 10 Scudetto wins.

Pretty impressive badge of honor to wear on your sleeve. Have any of you ever thought about why Man United haven't gone for a similar star type arrangement? We have our fair share of medals and trophies both Cup

Competition and League Wins. After all we do have the Golden 06/07 Premiership Champions badge on our skit sleeves whenever we're defending champions.

Well done to them.

I would have thought it is a league thing dlan4327, rather than 'up to the club' and England clearly doesn't see it fit. Although the last few England shirts have had them? So why not?

I really do not think its anything special. Lets face it - what competition do Bayern face domestically? German football is rather like Scotland, three or four goodies and a load of rubbish.
