Frauen-Bundesliga Professional football league (women)

The Frauen-Bundesliga, currently known as the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga due to sponsorship by FLYERALARM, is the top level of league competition for women's association football in Germany. In 1990 the German Football Association (DFB) created the German Women's Bundesliga, based on the model of the men's Bundesliga. It was first played with north and south divisions, but in 1997 the groups were merged to form a uniform league. The league currently consists of twelve teams and the seasons usually last from late summer to the end of spring with a break in the winter.

The Frauen-Bundesliga 1990–91 was the 1st season of the Frauen-Bundesliga, Germany's premier football league.

The Frauen-Bundesliga 1991–92 was the second season of the Frauen-Bundesliga, Germany's premier football league. In this season clubs from former East Germany were allowed to compete for the first time in an all-German Bundesliga due to the integration of the East German Football Association into the German Football Association. Both divisions were thus expanded to eleven competitors to make room for one East German team each. USV Jena in the north and Wismut Aue in the south both suffered relegation after the season, though.
