History Of Bayern Munich :
FC Bayern Munich won the league in its first year but did not win it again until the beginning of World War I in 1914, which halted all football activities in Germany. The rise of Adolf Hitler disrupted further development of FCB as Hitler was against Jews and FCB was known as a Jew Club. Club president Kurt Landauer and the coach, both of whom were Jewish, left the country. Many others in the club were also purged.
After World War II, football in Germany was played in five regional leagues, the top divisions of which were called Oberliga. Bayern played in the Oberliga Süd (“South”) and won the German Cup for the first time in 1957. Bundesliga was formed in 1963 as a West German National League, and Bayern quickly gained promotion to the league for the 1965–66 season.
