Crowd favourite. Top goalscorer. The face of Bayer 04. Over 10 years at the club. Kieß has played 423 games for the Black and Reds scoring 159 goals along the way.

24 August 1963 is a historic date in German sport: On that day, football was played for the first time in the Bundesliga, the new top-flight in Germany where the best clubs competed for the German title in a competition organised nationally rather than regionally. That was the start of a unique success story. The network of football museums and club archives organised a "Day of action of German football history" for today's 60th anniversary of the Bundesliga. The main event: The German Football League (DFL) and the pay-TV channel Sky organised a big football quiz at the German Football Museum in Dortmund. A Bayer 04 team took part fielding exciting questions around the history of the leak. The quiz is broadcast by Sky at 19.00 CEST tonight Thursday 24 August and will also be available on the broadcaster's YouTube channel.Show more
