The Bundesliga (referred to in-game as German League) is the top flight of German football. Unlike the other main European leagues which have been consistently featured since PES 4, the German League only appeared in two games, PES 4 and PES 5 (as well as the latter's spin-off, Pro Evolution Soccer Management), having been left out from PES 6 onward, to the disappointment of many PES fans. However, some German teams have intermittently featured in PES in small numbers since the league's dismissal, with FC Schalke 04 being the only confirmed team from the country in PES 2019.

Coincidentally, the German national team have been included in every PES title, but they have been unlicensed in every one until PES 2010. Each player has a 'fake' name and this has caused much criticism. For example in PES 2008, Miroslav Klose was called Kmala. This caused confusion in the Master League mode as you still had both players, licensed and unlicensed, that had identical statistics.

However there are many PES fans that create option files that include German teams to get over this problem. Thousands of people download option files with the Bundesliga on it, created over a placeholder league (currently the PEU League) to the delight of the file creators.
