The football club Bayern, Munich e. V. , or FC Bayern Munich for short , Bayern Munich or FC Bayern , is a German sports club from the Bavarian capital, Munich . It was founded on February 27, 1900 and with around 293,000 members (as of November 15, 2019) is the sports club in the world with the largest number of members .

FC Bayern Munich became famous for its football department, which has been partially outsourced to FC Bayern Munich AG since 2001 . The first men's team has played in the Bundesliga without interruption since the 1965/66 season and is German record champions with 31 championship titles and German record cup winners with 20 cup wins. The club is also one of the most successful clubs in Europe at the international level, with eight European Cup victories, six of them in the Champions League and the European Cup . The World Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup were won twice each; also twice the UEFA Super Cup . The club achieved its greatest successes in 2013 and 2020 when it won the triple . The first team has played its home games in the Allianz Arena since 2005 . Long-term homesteads were previously the stadium on Grünwalder Strasse and the Olympic Stadium .

FC Bayern has other departments that have also had some success. The football women playing in the women's Bundesliga became German champions in 1976, 2015 and 2016, and DFB Cup winners in 2012 . Thus, in 2015 and 2016, FC Bayern’s soccer departments managed to win the German championship for both men and women. The chess department achieved further successes with nine German championships and one European Cup victory, the gymnasts with four German championships, the basketball players with three championships and two cup wins and the baseball players with two German championship titles.


1900 to 1910 - The founding years

On February 27, 1900, a meeting of the football department of MTV Munich took place in the Gasthaus Bäckerhöfl , at which a dispute arose over the further development of the football department, shortly before the general assembly of the MTV rejected the association's membership in the Association of South German Football Associations would have. Arthur Ringler , Otto Ludwig Naegele , Albert Zoepfel, Josef Pollack , Fritz Wamsler , Carl Wamsler, Georg Schmid, Paul Francke , Kuno Friederich, Wilhelm Focke and Franz John left the restaurant at 9:30 p.m. and found themselves in the Gisela an der Jäger wine house - and Fürstenstrasse (today Kardinal-Döpfner-Strasse) in Maxvorstadt to found FC Bayern that same evening. The sculptor Benno Elkan , who later became famous, was one of the members mentioned on the founding deed . The chairman was Franz John from Berlin, who also became the first chairman in the history of the association. The club colors were blue and white, and the membership fee was set at one mark . Most of the founders of the association did not come from Munich or Bavaria, but from Berlin, Freiburg, Leipzig and Bremen. At the founding site, in front of today's Siemens site, there has been a memorial stone ( location ) since 2017 . As further founding fathers of the association, Adolph von Neger, Arnulf Hecking, Wilhelm Hirsch, Erich Gottschalk and August Evers appear on the certificate.

The Schyrenwiese at the Wittelsbacherbrücke served as the first game and training facility . The first opponent was 1. Munich FC 1896 in March 1900 , FC Bayern won the game 5-2. Other players quickly joined the club, including three players from the football department of TSV Munich 1860 . In the spring of 1900, the stove and oven manufacturer Friedrich Wamsler gave FC Bayern a piece of land on Clemensstrasse as a venue. In January 1901 the ice hockey game was also taken up. The first game in derby history between FC Bayern and the "Sixties" took place in 1902. FC Bayern won the game 3-0. In order to expand the game operations, the club decided to transfer to the Munich Sports Club in 1906 , but retained a certain degree of independence, which was expressed in the designation "FA Bayern im Münchner SC" (FA = football department). As a result of the merger, Bavaria now competed in white shirts and red pants, these colors replaced the blue and white from the founding time, the name Die Roten was born. At the local level, the “Bayern” became the undisputed number one in football, but they were less successful in the competition at the southern German level. At that time, the teams that had already developed along the Upper Rhine between Freiburg and Frankfurt in the 1890s still dominated football events too much.

After the square on Clemensstrasse had to give way to residential development, they played briefly a few hundred meters north on Karl-Theodor-Strasse and then moved to Leopoldstrasse a little further east in 1907, meanwhile under President Angelo Knorr . The first grandstand on a soccer field in Munich was inaugurated there. In the opening game there was an 8: 1 against Wacker Munich . As early as 1908, FC Bayern had more than 300 members, eight teams and more than 100 youth players. This resulted in a change in the statutes, which separated administrative work and sports. This gave the players more time to concentrate on the sport. In 1910 they were able to take part in the finals of the southern German championship for the first time. In the end, the team took 2nd place behind the Karlsruher FV . In the same year Bayern provided their first national player, Max Gablonsky .

1918 to 1928 - The time after the First World War

During the First World War , the sport came to a standstill and there were constant ups and downs in the club and its surroundings. Regular league operations were only guaranteed in southern Germany from the 1919/20 season onwards. In October 1919 Bayern left the Münchner SC and merged with the gymnastics club Jahn Munich to form TuSpV Jahn Munich . William Townley was recruited as a coach, which continued the tradition of the English coach in the club. In the pre-war years, Bayern had three English coaches, Coach Taylor, Hoer and Charles Griffiths , the latter of whom was the first full-time Bayern coach.

In the spring of 1924, the club was separated from TuSpV Jahn Munich in the course of a clean divorce . After that he only appeared as an independent club under the name “FC Bayern Munich”. With the Scot Jim McPherson , Bayern again relied on a British coach. In 1926 Bayern played for the southern German championship. The toughest competitors came back then with 1. FC Nürnberg and SpVgg. Fürth , which was considered the best team in Germany at the time, from Bavaria. The return match against Fürth in the Grünwalder Stadium was broadcast live on the radio. After a dramatic game, FCB won 4: 3, making Bayern South German champions for the first time. The fight for the German championship ended in the round of 16 0-2 against SV Fortuna Leipzig 02 . Two years later , the Hungarian coach Leo Weisz won the second South German championship. In the final round of the German championship , with victories against FC Wacker Halle and SpVgg Sülz 07 , the semi-finals were reached, which was the greatest success in the club's history up to that point. In Duisburg's Wedaustadion, Bayern were clearly defeated by Hamburger SV with a score of 2: 8.

1928 to 1933 - The first championship

After the coach change from Kálmán Konrád to Richard Dombi in 1930 and three failed attempts to win the German championship in 1926, 1928 and 1929, Bayern lost the final of the southern German championship in 1931/32 against Eintracht from Frankfurt , but went as South German runner-up in the final round of the German championship . FCB defeated Minerva Berlin and the SV Chemnitz police in 1893 , before arch rivals 1. FC Nürnberg, up to then five-time German champions, were defeated 2-0 in the semifinals in Mannheim. The goals were scored by Oskar Rohr and Hans Welker . In the final on June 12, 1932 in Nuremberg, the opponent was Eintracht Frankfurt, as in the final of the southern German championship. Thousands of Bayern fans set out, including around 400 unemployed people by bike. In retrospect, the club took over the costs for these fans for accommodation and tickets. On the day of the final, it was 30 degrees in the shade and 55,000 spectators saw the game in the stadium. In the 35th minute, Hans Stubb from Frankfurt took the hand on the goal line and there were penalties for Bayern. "Ossi" Rohr surely made it 1-0. In the second half, Frankfurt pushed for the equalizer, but in the 75th minute Franz Krumm scored the decisive 2-0 for Bayern. After the final whistle, FC Bayern Munich held the Victoria in hand for the first time in the club's history . For the first time a club from Munich became German champions and the team was enthusiastically welcomed in the state capital. The victory celebration took place in Munich's Löwenbräukeller , the players were brought to the celebration on horse-drawn carriages. In one of the keynote speeches it was said, "What was definitely thought in the previous year in 1860, this year FC Bayern has done".

In 1933 the title could not be defended after the club had lost both games against TSV 1860 Munich for the southern German championship. After the Nazi takeover of government under the leadership of Adolf Hitler , President Kurt Landauer had to resign in the same year due to his Jewish descent due to political pressure. Coach Dombi, also of Jewish descent, moved to Switzerland shortly afterwards. In contrast to city rivals 1860 Munich, FC Bayern was frowned upon by the new rulers because of Landauer and Dombi as a "Jewish club", although on April 9, 1933, in the Stuttgart Declaration, together with 13 other southern German football clubs, it announced the expulsion of all Jewish members and implemented it in 1935 with an Aryan paragraph in the association's statutes. In addition, the sports historian Markwart Herzog found out in 2017 that the then Vice President August Harlacher, who had been a member of the club since 1908, had already joined the NSDAP in 1930 . Josef Kellner, President of FC Bayern from 1938 to 1943, had not only been a party member of the NSDAP since 1933, but was also an influential National Socialist as the head of the district and district administrator in the Sudetengau . From 1938 to 1945 the club crest of FC Bayern Munich contained a swastika and an imperial eagle in the inner circle. In 2017, FC Bayern itself commissioned the Institute for Contemporary History (IfZ) to conduct research on the club's role in National Socialism.

In 1933 Oskar Rohr also left the club to become a professional player with the Grasshoppers Zurich . The new coach was Hans Tauchert , who could not build on his old successes and was replaced by Ludwig Hofmann in 1934 . Hofmann died a short time later of a throat disease and Richard Michalke took over the position of trainer. That was not the end of the downward trend, as 1939 threatened the first decline in the history of the club. The class was just held. In the course of the war, the Gauligen were further regionalized in order to keep the distances for the clubs for away games as short as possible. If the Bavarians were initially in the Gauliga Bayern, they then played in the Gauliga Südbayern, which was created through the division of the Gauliga Bayern. Shortly before the end of the war, they played in the Gauliga Munich-Upper Bavaria. In 1944, the Reds were able to win a southern German championship again and thus qualified again for the final round of the German championship. Already in the round of 16 they lost after extra time against VfR Mannheim . On July 13 of the same year, the office and part of the archive were destroyed in bombing raids. In the following year, FC Bayern again qualified for the final round of the German championship under player- coach Conny Heidkamp . However, the final round did not take place in the year the Second World War ended. Since the stadium on Grünwalder Straße was destroyed in bombing in 1943 and was only released again in August 1945, FC Bayern played its games in those years in the Dante Stadium (1943–1944), on the square on Schlierseestraße (1944–1945) and on the Hypobank sports field on Grünwalder Strasse (1945).

After the end of the Second World War, all German sports clubs were dissolved by the Allied Control Council and had to apply for a license to re-establish them. FC Bayern players soon got together again, played their first game after the end of the war against FC Wacker Munich on June 24, 1945, and joined the Oberliga Süd in November of the same year . The new beginning after the war was difficult, the coaches changed almost every year and the sporting success was initially limited. Kurt Landauer returned from exile in June 1947 and was re-elected as the association's first chairman a few weeks later. His fourth and final term ended in 1951.

The number of members of the association developed positively in the post-war years. FC Bayern soon had more than 1,000 members again, and the youth departments were also very popular. In 1949, the qualifying games for the German championship were achieved again over a third place in the league table. In the qualification, a replay was necessary against FC St. Pauli , which was played the next day, but was lost 2-0. After that, the club started a longer sporting descent, which culminated in the descent. In 1954/55 Bayern were relegated from the top division of the time for the first and only time in their history. In the following year, the company immediately rose again.

One of the few sporting highlights of the 1940s and 50s was winning the DFB Cup . In the year of the rise, Bayern originally did not want to take part in the DFB Cup. They simply wanted to save travel expenses. But the new coach Willibald Hahn absolutely demanded participation and was able to prevail against the club's management in the end. After 1. FC Saarbrücken was defeated 3-1 in the semifinals , Fortuna Düsseldorf was the opponent in the final . It took place on December 29, 1957 in Augsburg's Rosenaustadion in front of 42,000 spectators, including around 12,000 Bayern fans. There was heavy snowfall on the day of the match. The outsider from Munich dominated from the start, but Fortuna's goalkeeper Albert Görtz was able to keep his goal clean until the 78th minute. Then, after three attempts , Rudi Jobst scored the only goal of the game, and after a quarter of a century since winning the championship final in 1932, Bayern managed to win a national trophy for the second time.

Match dates for the 1957 DFB Cup final

In the league, however, it was only enough for seventh place. New financial problems also seemed insurmountable. With the entrepreneur Roland Endler, a new president was elected to succeed Alfred Reitlinger , who was ready to commit himself accordingly.

With a new coach, the Austrian Adolf Patek , things started to improve again in 1958/59. Fourth place was the best result in ten years. In the following season, FC Bayern was deducted four points because of a so-called “overpayment” by the players in the 57/58 season. The original penalty was eight points, and an appeal reduced the penalty. Bayern would have finished third without a deduction, so this time they finished fifth. The young Peter Grosser scored 18 times in 21 missions. The only highlight in the 1960/61 season was the win in the derby against TSV 1860 Munich. After an interim 2: 2, the lions were defeated 6: 2 in the end. Willi Giesemann , who was brought in from VfL Wolfsburg at the beginning of the season , met three times on this “sacrosanctly cold” day in January and then made his national team debut in May. After the disappointing eighth place at the end of the season, the already unpopular coach Patek had to leave. For him came Helmut Schneider , who led Borussia Dortmund to two German championships in series in 1956 and 1957 .

In the 1962/63 season, the club took part in a prestigious international competition for the first time. The quarter-finals of the Messestädte Cup were reached and lost to Dinamo Zagreb . At the national level, Bayern wanted to qualify for the upcoming new Bundesliga . In addition, on April 28, 1962, a new era began at FC Bayern: Initially, Wilhelm Neudecker only temporarily took over the presidency of the club for one year - it was to become much more than just one. With Herbert Erhardt, the new president only allowed a seasoned player to sign up, otherwise coach Schneider was only allowed to bring young talents to the Isar, including goalkeeping talent Sepp Maier . He made his debut as an 18-year-old on December 30, 1962, when the goalkeeper Fritz Kosar had to help out in the attack. Bayern finished the season in 3rd place in the table behind 1. FC Nürnberg and TSV 1860 Munich. Thus the final round of the German championship was missed.

The Bundesliga started in the 1963/64 season . In the Oberliga Süd a total of five places were awarded by the DFB after the twelve-year rating for the new league, with the champions of the last Oberliga season 1962/63 of the five Oberliga seasons qualified in each case. The city rival TSV 1860 was even behind Bayern Munich in the ranking of the very broadly composed southern season, which was peppered by many top clubs, but benefited from his championship title. FC Bayern, on the other hand, was denied admission to the Bundesliga on May 11, 1963. Thus, the club had to compete in the newly created regional league in 1963/64 .

  • Helmut Schneider's contract had already been extended, but then he had to leave the club. For him came Zlatko Čajkovski . The declared season goal in the Regionalliga 1963/64 was to reach the promotion round to the Bundesliga. This goal was achieved with a second place at the end of the season. On June 6, 1964, FC St. Pauli was defeated 4-0 in the first game of the promotion round, the first competitive game of the then 18-year-old Franz Beckenbauer . In his first game for Bayern, Beckenbauer scored his first goal. Beckenbauer had decided against a move to TSV 1860 Munich and for FC Bayern after he was slapped by an opponent in a game of his SC Munich in 1906 against TSV 1860. In the end, FC Bayern was only one point short of promotion and it was time to make a new attempt. After Maier and Beckenbauer, two later pillars of the success years, had been committed in the previous two years, Gerd Müller , who later became the “nation's bomber”, was joined by a striker. The rival TSV 1860 Munich was outdone by FC Bayern Müller offering a professional contract, while TSV only offered an amateur contract for one year. However, Čajkovski was not enthusiastic about the commitment of the young, stocky striker: "What should I do with this boy, this figure, impossible." Later he affectionately called him "little fat miller". In his first game on October 18, 1964, Müller scored 3-0 against Freiburg FC and scored 33 goals in 26 games in the 1964/65 season . The goal difference of 146: 32 as champions of the Regionalliga Süd is a record to this day. In the promotion round, Tennis Borussia Berlin was defeated 8: 0 in Berlin. FC Bayern was promoted to the Bundesliga.

    Before Bayern's first Bundesliga season, Čajkovski complained that he had no finished players and would be satisfied if the class was held. On the first day of the derby against TSV 1860, FC Bayern lost 1-0. On the fourth match day, the team was at the top of the Bundesliga table for the first time. The first season ended in third place in the table. It was the only time in the history of the Bundesliga that both clubs from Munich were in the top three at the end of a season. In addition, it was possible for the second time in the club's history to win the DFB Cup , in the final against Meidericher SV (4: 2). Sepp Maier after the game: “It was a hoot, it was sweaty, and it was gwunna a no. It was a shame!” In 1966 both the Bundesliga champions and the cup winners came from Munich.

    Game dates for the 1966 DFB Cup final

    In the next season, 1966/67, the team remained almost unchanged. Only Franz “Bulle” Roth came from Kaufbeuren, Georg Schwarzenbeck from his own offspring. After appearing in the unofficial Messestädte Cup, FC Bayern played for the first time in an international competition organized by UEFA , the European Cup Winners' Cup . This season of the cup winners' competition was the first major triumphal procession for Bavaria on the European stage. Via Tatran Prešov , Shamrock Rovers , Rapid Vienna and Standard Liège , FC Bayern reached the final, which almost turned into a home game as it took place in Nuremberg. In the same place, Bayern had won their first important title for the club 35 years earlier.

    Opponents in the final were the Glasgow Rangers , who had previously thrown defending champion Borussia Dortmund out of the competition in the round of 16 . In front of 71,000 spectators, Bulle Roth scored the 1-0 for Munich in extra time (108th minute). Two years earlier, Roth had played in the C-Class at TSV Bertoldshofen and now scored the decisive goal for FC Bayern Munich's first international title. After Borussia Dortmund the year before, a German club won the Cup Winners' Cup again.

    FC Bayern only finished the regular Bundesliga season in sixth place, but the DFB Cup was successfully defended. In Stuttgart, 68,000 spectators saw Bayern's renewed cup triumph. With 4: 0, through goals from Müller (2), Ohlhauser and Brenninger (1 each), Hamburger SV had no chance with Uwe Seeler .

    Match dates of the final for the DFB-Pokal 1967 and the final for the European Cup Winners' Cup 1967

    This was the third cup success in twelve months. Franz Beckenbauer was voted " Footballer of the Year " for the first time in his young career . The following season 1967/68 was not Bayern's year. The semi-finals of the 1967/68 European Cup Winners' Cup were lost to eventual winners AC Milan , and in the DFB Cup , the then regional league team VfL Bochum also threw the defending champion out of the competition in the semi-finals. In the Bundesliga it was only enough for fifth place. For the first time in the Bundesliga, however, FC Bayern overtook arch rivals TSV 1860 both in the table and in the favor of the spectators in Munich and has since remained the more and more successful of the two clubs.

    Tschik Čajkovski left the club in 1968 after five years for Hannover 96 . Branko Zebec came for him . With him came Gustl Starek and Peter Pumm . In the following years, both proved to be the main pillars of his concept, which relied on a strong defensive. In his first year as a coach, Zebec won the championship and cup double with Bayern in 1969 , for the first time in the club's history. In the cup final, FC Schalke 04 were defeated 2-1, the club that last won the double in 1937. Before the game, Gerd Müller accepted the award as “Footballer of the Year”.

    On March 13, 1970, the only 35-year-old Udo Lattek , until then without much coaching experience, replaced the previous coach Zebec. When Lattek took office, a new, even more successful era began for Bayern. Under Lattek, FC Bayern finished the 1969/70 season in second place. Borussia Mönchengladbach became champions for the first time . Gerd Müller was the top scorer in the Bundesliga for the third time with the record number of 38 goals in one season. He was also the top scorer at the 1970 World Cup in Mexico. In that year 1970, apart from the coaching position, there was also a personal change in the team. Long-time captain Werner Olk , now 32 years old, left FC Bayern and ended his active career at FC Aarau in Switzerland. Also Rainer Ohlhauser , who scored 186 league goals for Bayern in the past nine years, went to Switzerland, while Gustl Starek moved back to his native Austria after he had last been only sporadically used. Before the start of the new season, the club signed two new 18-year-old talents, Uli Hoeneß from Ulm and Paul Breitner from Freilassing , who would later determine the future of FC Bayern.

    In the 1970/71 season , Bayern were also at the forefront of the Bundesliga and were even leaders before the last match day, but lost the last game of the season 2-0 in Duisburg, while Gladbach as reigning champions won their title with a 4-1 win in Frankfurt could defend successfully. After the team failed in the DFB Cup in 1970 as defending champions at the meanwhile second-rate 1. FC Nürnberg and also had to play the replay in the new season against Hessen Kassel and 1. FC Kaiserslautern , after victories against Duisburg and in Dusseldorf they were like last time Reached the finals again in 1966, 1967 and 1969. Bayern were down 1-0 against 1. FC Köln after 13 minutes before Beckenbauer was able to equalize in the 53rd minute. The for Franz Roth substitute Edgar Schneider scored the winning goal in the 118th minute. Bayern had reached the cup final for the fifth time and won the DFB Cup, but it was the last triumph in the DFB Cup for a whole decade.

    Match dates for the 1971 DFB Cup final

    The 1971/72 season was the year of records for the club. From the first day of the game the Reds remained without defeat for 14 games in a row. On June 28, 1972, FC Bayern Munich played its first home game in the new Olympic Stadium . It was also the last game of the season, in a "final" for the championship, Schalke 04, second in the table, was beaten 5-1. The championship was achieved with 24 wins, 3 losses and 7 draws with 55 points. Bayern scored 101 goals, 40 of which were scored by Gerd Müller alone - both of which are Bundesliga goals to this day. The 11: 1 in the home game against Borussia Dortmund was one of the highest Bundesliga victories. The Munich team continued where they left off in the next season . From the first to the last match day, the leaders of the table were FC Bayern Munich, who were eleven points ahead of 1. FC Köln. Also in 1974 there was no getting past Bayern, the title was defended for the second time in a row, Gerd Müller was the top scorer in the Bundesliga for the third time in a row and FC Bayern Munich now ascended "Europe's throne" for the first time.

    In the first round of the European Champions Cup , Bayern only got one round through a penalty shoot-out in the second leg against Swedish champions Åtvidabergs FF . Then came the round of 16 meeting with Dynamo Dresden , which was the first German-German clash in the UEFA European Cup . At halftime, Dynamo Dresden led 3: 2 in Munich, the Munich team could turn the game around and win 4: 3. Thus Dresden had a good starting position for the second leg. But the Reds took a 2-0 lead after just twelve minutes with two goals from Hoeneß. Shortly after the half-time break, the Saxons managed to equalize in the 52nd minute and four minutes later the opening goal to make it 3-2. Gerd Müller equalized in the 58th minute to make it 3: 3. The next two rounds were survived relatively easily against CSKA Sofia and Újpest Budapest . Thus Bayern reached the final in Brussels. Opponent was Atlético Madrid and after 90 minutes it was 0-0. With six minutes remaining in extra time, Luis Aragonés made it 1-0 for Madrid with a free kick. Immediately before the final whistle, Georg "Katsche" Schwarzenbeck received the ball from Beckenbauer. He didn't see a pass in midfield, Beckenbauer just shouted “Just shoot!”, Which he did from 30 meters and scored to make it 1: 1 in the 120th minute. Schwarzenbeck went down in football history with this goal. According to the rules of the time, the 1: 1 meant a replay, which took place only two days later in the same place. Atlético was beaten 4-0 by two Hoeneß and Müller goals. For the first time a German team won the national champions' cup. The next day we went to Mönchengladbach to finish off the Bundesliga. FC Bayern went down 5-0 and Gladbach's striker Jupp Heynckes tied two goals with Gerd Müller's 30 goals of the season and thus secured his first of two top scorer cannons . Seven weeks later, seven Bavarians became world champions in the Munich Olympic Stadium .

    Game dates for the 1974 national champions' cup finals

    For the 1974/75 season Paul Breitner followed the ex-Gladbacher Günter Netzer to Real Madrid for a transfer fee of three million marks after a year . 20,000 marks of this went to Borussia Lippstadt for the 18-year-old talented striker Karl-Heinz Rummenigge . At the start of the season there was a 6-0 defeat at Kickers Offenbach in Frankfurt's Waldstadion , where they played because of the renovation of the Bieberer Berg . After the first round, Bayern were 14th and due to the poor position in the league, a crisis discussion broke out between Lattek and President Neudecker. Lattek later described the conversation as follows: “Mr. Neudecker, we have to change something”, to which Neudecker replied with “You are right. You are fired, ”replied. Beckenbauer's best man, DFB trainer Dettmar Cramer , was the new coach . Cramer could not save the Bundesliga season: Bayern were tenth. In keeping with the club's 75th anniversary, however, it was possible to defend the national champions' cup . The way to the final led through the Sparwasser club 1. FC Magdeburg , where they celebrated their first away win in the national championship cup, Ararat Yerevan and AS Saint-Étienne . Since Bayern and the winner of the 1974 Cup Winners' Cup , 1. FC Magdeburg, could not officially agree on a date for the European Supercup , these games were canceled. The clash in the cup of national champions of the two teams was transformed into a substitute decision, which was canceled for Bayern. In Paris, where the final for the reopening of the renovated Prinzenparkstadion took place, the Munich team prevailed - not necessarily according to the course of the game - with two late goals from Franz “Bulle” Roth and Müller against Leeds United 2-0 . The disappointed Leeds fans rioted during the game, which earned Leeds a five-year ban from European Cup matches. Bayern set a record: no club was ever worse in the national league when they won the European Cup.

    The 1975/76 season was again unsatisfactory in the league; at the winter break, FC Bayern Munich was only tenth. The games for the UEFA Super Cup against Dynamo Kiev were both lost. After the winter break things went better and the club finished third in the table. In the DFB Cup, Bayern made it to the semi-finals, where they failed at Hamburger SV. After Jeunesse Esch , Malmö FF and Benfica Lisbon , Bayern faced Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Cup of National Champions . The second leg in the Olympic Stadium was completely sold out and with Günter Netzer and the former Red Paul Breitner , two German national players were in the service of Real. After a 1-1 draw in the first leg, Real were defeated by Gerd Müller with two goals and Bayern made it into the final for the third time in a row. There they met AS Saint-Étienne. As in the previous year, Franz Roth distinguished himself as a goal scorer in the final, but this time as a gold scorer: His 1-0 in the 57th minute was the only goal of the game and for the third time, FC Bayern was the winner of the championship cup. This had previously only been achieved by the Royal from Madrid (five times in a row) and Ajax Amsterdam from 1971 to 1973.

    After years of international triumphs, the team was in a state of upheaval. One of the last big highlights was as the first German team to win the World Cup in December 1976 against Cruzeiro Belo Horizonte , while the Supercup against RSC Anderlecht could not be won again. The winning streak in the European Cup ended in the quarter-finals against Dynamo Kiev . Only seventh place was achieved in the league , which, with a lot of luck, meant qualifying for the UEFA Cup , as 1. FC Köln won the DFB Cup in fifth and HSV in sixth the European Cup Winners' Cup . 65 goals conceded in that season mean the absolute negative record for Munich to date, only the goalkeepers of the three relegated teams had to reach behind them more often. Twelve of the 65 goals conceded were in two memorable games within a few weeks: On the one hand, a 6-5 win at VfL Bochum , in which the Bayern team was the only Bundesliga team to date, after a 4-0 deficit to still win the game, on the other hand in a 7-0 home defeat against FC Schalke 04, the highest of Bayern ever. The season also ended an era, because captain Franz Beckenbauer , who had been awarded the Ballon d'Or as the best footballer in Europe a few months earlier , broke his tent in Munich and moved across the Atlantic to Cosmos New York .

    In December 1977 the club made an exchange deal with Eintracht Frankfurt : Cramer moved to the Main, in return Gyula Lóránt came to the Isar. Bayern was only twelfth in the table , the worst placement in the club's Bundesliga history. At the end of the season Paul Breitner returned to Munich from Eintracht Braunschweig for 1.75 million marks . Gyula Lóránt was already on leave in December 1978 and his previous assistant coach Pál Csernai took over his post. Max Merkel was already hired as his successor , but the team spoke out against him, which is why Csernai remained coach and President Neudecker resigned after 17 years in office. Willi O. Hoffmann became the new president . Gerd Müller followed Franz Beckenbauer to the USA in 1979. The only ray of hope in the troubled times was the newly created duo Rummenigge and Breitner, called Breitnigge . They alone accounted for 26 of the 69 goals scored. In April 1979, Uli Hoeneß returned to Bayern after several months at 1. FC Nürnberg and became manager of the club when he was only 27 years old because he had to end his playing career due to an injury.

    Highlighted in green: winning the German championship

    In July 1979 the club received the next bad news: Sepp Maier was injured so badly in a car accident that Anzing's cat , as he was also known, had to end his career early. At the age of 35 he had played 473 Bundesliga games, all for FC Bayern, of which 442 were in a row. Maier's successors were the young goalkeeper Walter Junghans , who had been hired by Victoria Hamburg two years earlier, and also the experienced second division goalkeeper Manfred Müller . Even the last great of the 1970s had to end his career early: Katsche Schwarzenbeck played his last Bundesliga game against FC Schalke 04 on August 18, 1979. He suffered an Achilles tendon injury that forced him to end his career. Schwarzenbeck played 416 Bundesliga games for Bayern, in which he scored 16 goals. Other players moved into the limelight: Klaus Augenthaler , now a regular, Dieter Hoeneß , who came to the Isar from VfB Stuttgart , and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge . The latter was elected Footballer of Europe in 1979.

    In the DFB Cup, the Reds were embarrassed against SpVgg Bayreuth in the third main round. In the UEFA Cup , the semi-finals were reached and there was again defeated in the German-German duel of Eintracht from Frankfurt despite a 2-0 first leg. Bayern had already been eliminated in the round of 16 of the UEFA Cup against Eintracht Frankfurt the year before. In the second half of the Bundesliga, Bayern went head-to-head with HSV . The championship was only decided on the last day of the match. Bayern Munich won 2-1 at home in the Olympic Stadium against Eintracht Braunschweig with goals from Breitner and Rummenigge. Since winning the World Cup in 1976, Bayern's first title and the first championship in six years have been celebrated. The upheaval initiated in 1977/78 was complete and Bayern found their way back on the road to success.

    In 1980/81, FC Bayern Munich successfully defended its championship title, with the Breitnigge duo scoring a total of 46 goals. In the national champions' cup they reached the semi-finals and defeated Ajax Amsterdam, among others. They didn't lose a game against Liverpool in the semi-finals either , but had to cancel the sails after the 1-1 draw in the second leg in Munich because of the away goals rule . The Reds from Liverpool won their third cup of national champions in the final. The third main round of the DFB Cup was again the last stop against 1. FC Kaiserslautern .

    But in the following year the club won the trophy for the sixth time eleven years after their last victory. The final in Frankfurt's Waldstadion was one of the most extraordinary in the history of this competition, because Dieter Hoeneß played it to the end with a head bandage despite a head injury that he suffered in the game. Bayern were already 2-0 down against 1. FC Nürnberg at halftime. After a header duel with Alois Reinhardt , Hoeneß suffered the severe head injury, which was initially only poorly bandaged. During the half-time break, his brother Uli persuaded him to grit his teeth because they would need him. Dieter Hoeneß then had the wound stitched up without anesthesia and appeared on the lawn again at the second half. FC Bayern turned the game around and Dieter Hoeneß even managed the decisive goal to make it 4-2 with a header in the 89th minute. FC Bayern Munich was also more successful in the European Cup and made it to the final of the National Champions Cup, but lost to Aston Villa 1-0 despite a clear dominance in the course of the game. In the championship, HSV and 1. FC Köln made the title among themselves. Only the 3rd place remained for the Munich team after losing 3-0 against Gladbach at Bökelberg .

    For the 1982/83 season , the Belgian national goalkeeper Jean-Marie Pfaff was committed by SK Beveren . Although he played a major role in the 1-0 defeat at Werder Bremen on the first match day , when he steered a throw-in from Uwe Reinders into his own goal, he was both a regular goalkeeper and a crowd favorite for the next six years. His first season was rather moderately successful and coach Pal Csernai was sacked three game days before the end of the season. In the Bundesliga it was only enough for fourth place, they failed in the quarter-finals of the Cup Winners' Cup at FC Aberdeen , which later also won the title, and in the DFB Cup the team was eliminated early on at Eintracht Braunschweig . At the end of the season, Paul Breitner, one of the "greats", ended his career again. On the 33rd match day against Schalke, Michael Rummenigge , the eight years younger brother of Karl-Heinz, made his debut at Bayern. In July 1983 Udo Lattek returned to Munich as a coach. Very successful years followed under him. The team reached the cup final three times in a row under his leadership. The 1984 final against Borussia Mönchengladbach had to be decided on penalties. Lothar Matthäus , whose move to the Isar was already certain for the following season, missed Gladbach's first penalty. The following year Bayern lost after a 1-0 lead with 1: 2 against Bayer 05 Uerdingen , followed by a safe 5-2 final victory against VfB Stuttgart in 1986.

    Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was sold to Inter Milan in 1984 for the then world record transfer fee of 11.4 million marks, with which the Bavarians got rid of their debts and still kept several million change in the till and secured the financial supremacy in Germany, which never was more was lost.

    While Bayern only reached the semi-finals of the European Cup Winners 'Cup in 1985, they were back in the final of the National Champions' Cup in 1987. In Vienna they met the outsider FC Porto . Until the 78th minute, Bayern led 1-0 through an early goal from Ludwig Kögl , before Rabah Madjer equalized with a Hackentricktor. Just two minutes later, FC Porto went 2-1 and FC Bayern again missed their chance to win the European Cup. The championship was won three times in a row from 1985 to 1987. By winning the championship in 1986, FC Bayern took over from 1. FC Nürnberg as Germany's record champions, with FC Bayern succeeding in the rare feat of leading the Bundesliga from the first to the last match day in the 1984/85 season. Udo Lattek took his hat at the end of the 1986/87 season and said goodbye to Bayern for the last time. In his two terms as coach of FC Bayern Munich, he won a total of six championships, three times the DFB Cup and once the national championship cup.

    Udo Lattek was followed by Jupp Heynckes as coach at Bayern. In his first season as the responsible coach, he ended up second behind Werder Bremen . Another upheaval in the team followed, with five national players leaving the club. Matthäus and Brehme went to Inter Milan , and Jean-Marie Pfaff left the club for Lierse SK . Pfaff had played 156 Bundesliga games for Bayern. Pfaff's successor was Raimond Aumann, then 25 . Among others, Stefan Reuter , Olaf Thon and Roland Grahammer were newly signed . So it worked for Heynckes with the championship in the second attempt and Roland Wohlfarth was top scorer in the Bundesliga with 17 goals. In the DFB Cup, however, Heynckes was not so successful and was eliminated with Bayern in the third round against Karlsruher SC . The semi-finals of the UEFA Cup were reached. There the Munich failed at the later title winner SSC Napoli with the then world star Diego Armando Maradona . However, the second leg of the second leg at Inter Milan should be better remembered from that European Cup season in 1988/89. After a 2-0 defeat in the first leg, Bayern managed the “Miracle of Milan” and won the second leg 3-1. Also legendary was the dispute between Christoph Daum , the coach of the title competitor 1. FC Köln, with Uli Hoeneß and Jupp Heynckes in the ZDF sports studio . B. that a weather map is more interesting than a conversation with Heynckes.

    For the 1989/90 season , which was similar to the previous season, seven new players were added. The championship title was successfully defended, in the DFB Cup, FC Bayern was eliminated in the round of 16 at VfB Stuttgart and in the European Cup, the semi-finals were reached, where AC Milan were too strong. Klaus Augenthaler scored the “goal of the decade” when he scored the decisive 1-0 in the cup game at Eintracht Frankfurt from 48.90 meters. With Augenthaler , Kohler , Pflügler , Reuter , Thon and Aumann , six Bayern players went to the 1990 World Cup and came back as world champions.

    The 1990s began for Bayern as the 80s ended. With the semi-finals in the Cup of National Champions, the club reached the round of the last four in a European Cup competition for the third time in a row. This was last achieved almost ten years earlier, from 1980 to 1982. After SSC Napoli and AC Milan in previous years, Red Star Belgrade was the final destination this time . The team was eliminated narrowly and unhappily. Until the 90th minute of the second leg, FC Bayern led 2-1 and would have been in extra time. But a flutter ball from Klaus Augenthaler on his own goal was not able to hold Raimond Aumann and with a 2-2 Red Star moved into the final. In the DFB Cup it was an embarrassing 1-0 in the first round among the amateurs from FV 09 Weinheim , in the league the Reds were runner-up behind 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

    Highlighted in green: winning the German championship

    For the 1991/92 season Kohler and Reuter moved to Juventus Turin . Although the Bavarians received around 15 million marks in transfer fees for Kohler alone , the sporting loss weighed heavily; Thomas Berthold , signed by AS Roma , did not turn out to be an equivalent substitute. Klaus Augenthaler had also ended his career in which he completed 404 Bundesliga games for FC Bayern and was champion seven times and cup winner three times. Raimond Aumann and Brian Laudrup both suffered cruciate ligament ruptures . Gerald Hillringhaus came in for Aumann and the also failed substitute goalkeeper Sven Scheuer , but was only able to convince to a limited extent, so that the former national goalkeeper Toni Schumacher was reactivated at short notice and guarded the Bayern goal in eight Bundesliga games before the winter break of 1991/92.

    After a 1: 4 home defeat against the Stuttgarter Kickers , thus four league games without a win and slipping to 12th place in the table, the public pressure was so great that the club dismissed Jupp Heynckes on October 8, 1991. According to Raimond Aumann, the players had tears in their eyes when Heynckes said goodbye to them. Uli Hoeneß, who is friends with Jupp Heynckes and who supported the decision to dismiss, said several times years later that it was his biggest mistake.

    Heynckes' successor was Søren Lerby , who had played 89 games for FC Bayern from 1983 to 1986. However, the results were not better, on the contrary, because in the second round of the UEFA Cup Bayern were outclassed 6-2 by B 1903 Copenhagen . In the end, Bayern finished tenth in the Bundesliga and did not qualify for an international competition for the first time since 1979. In March 1992, Erich Ribbeck was hired as the new coach and successor to Lerby. In addition, the club invested a total of 23.5 million marks in new players in the summer, a high sum for the time. However, Stefan Effenberg and Brian Laudrup left the club for 17 million for AC Florence . In return, Lothar Matthäus returned to the Isar after four years in Italy. There were also players like Thomas Helmer , Mehmet Scholl and Jorginho . For 32 match days, FC Bayern remained in first place in the table and ended up second behind Werder Bremen.

    In 1994 the Munich team won the 13th championship title. Before that, coach Ribbeck had been dismissed during the winter break, and the then Vice President Franz Beckenbauer took over the coaching position for his Bavarians for the first time.

    For the new season 1994/95, Giovanni Trapattoni, one of the most successful coaches in football history, was hired, but initially he only stayed on the Isar for one year. The language problems were too great. As the new goalkeeper, Oliver Kahn joined Bayern, who later became an icon in Munich. In the autumn of 1994, Franz Beckenbauer replaced Fritz Scherer, who had been in office since 1985, as President of the entire association. In the championship, FC Bayern was only sixth, but under "Mister" Trapattoni at least the semi-finals of the national championship cup, which has since been renamed the UEFA Champions League , were reached, where they had no chance against the eventual winner Ajax Amsterdam. As in 1990, Bayern made a disgraceful slip in round one in the DFB Cup. This time the opponent was TSV Vestenbergsgreuth , against whom they lost 1-0 in Nuremberg. With Borussia Mönchengladbach's cup victory , FC Bayern managed to get into international business despite being sixth in the table and was able to take part in the UEFA Cup the following season. Franz Beckenbauer then described the competition as the “Cup of Losers”.

    With Otto Rehhagel , the club succeeded in not only bringing another renowned coach to the Isar in the following season, but also the representative of the direct rival who had previously coached SV Werder Bremen for 14 years and often competed for the championship with Bayern Munich would have. Despite second place in the league, the still possible win of the championship and entry into the finals of the UEFA Cup, Rehhagel had to vacate his post on April 27, 1996 after a 0-1 home defeat by Hansa Rostock . Franz Beckenbauer took his place on the bench again, but in the Bundesliga it stayed in second place behind Borussia Dortmund. However, he won both of the UEFA Cup finals against Girondins Bordeaux . Even though Beckenbauer won the European Cup Winners 'Cup, the National Champions' Cup, the World Cup, the European and World Cup as a player and the World Cup and the UEFA Cup as a coach and the only thing missing in his career is the European Supercup, he wanted personally as an interim coach does not identify with the title and does not see himself as a UEFA Cup winner. Jürgen Klinsmann , who moved from Tottenham Hotspur to Munich before the season , set a new record with 15 tournament goals this UEFA Cup season, which was only set by Falcao in 2011 .

    Match dates for the 1996 UEFA Cup final

    A practical solution was chosen for the new season and Giovanni Trapattoni was brought back to the Isar, this time with a little more success: He was German champion of the 1996/97 season with FC Bayern , which was his first title outside of Italy. In 1998 he also won the DFB Cup against MSV Duisburg with Bayern. The 1998 DFB Cup victory was also the club's first cup victory in twelve years. However, the championship was rather disappointing: Ironically, with the promoted 1. FC Kaiserslautern coached by Otto Rehhagel , they fought an exciting title fight, but stayed in second place for practically the entire season. After that, the Italian left Munich for the second time. His angry speech after a 0: 1 at Schalke on March 10, 1998 in a press conference remained unforgotten .

    Highlighted in green: winning the German championship
    During Hitzfeld's six-year tenure as head coach, FC Bayern was four times German champions, two times cup winners as well as Champions League and World Cup winners

    For the 1998/99 season the Meistermacher came Borussia Dortmund , Ottmar Hitzfeld , who had worked in the previous year as sports director of Dortmund, as Trapattoni's successor to Munich. With Hitzfeld, Stefan Effenberg returned to the Isar, who had already played for FC Bayern from 1990 to 1992. He became Hitzfeld's extended arm in the team over the next few years. Under the new coach, Bayern immediately became champions with a 15-point lead over runner-up Bayer Leverkusen and the triple seemed possible.

    Already secured the championship, Bayern faced Manchester United's team in the Champions League final in Barcelona on May 26, 1999 , against whom they drew twice in the group stage. Already in the 6th minute Bayern took a 1-0 lead with a goal from Mario Basler . FC Bayern was also superior in the further course of the game and could have extended their lead through both Mehmet Scholl and Carsten Jancker . However, both only hit the goal post or the crossbar. In the 80th minute, Lothar Matthäus , up to then one of the best players on the field, had himself replaced at his own request. The team held the 1-0 up until stoppage time, when Manchester, with goals from Sheringham and Solskjær , managed to turn the game around within two minutes. This Champions League final went down as one of the most memorable in history, and the substitution of Matthäus was controversial for a long time.

In 2003/04 it was enough for the round of 16, in which the Munich team were eliminated by Real Madrid like two years earlier . In the DFB Cup , the quarter-finals at Alemannia Aachen were the final destination. At the end of the season, FC Bayern prematurely terminated the contract with coach Hitzfeld, which was dated until mid-2005.

Thus, for the first time since 2000, FC Bayern had become champions again in their own stadium, after the following twelve championships had all been won away from home or once through the defeat of a competitor the following day. A week after the championship, the DFB Cup was also won. Opponent in the Berlin Olympic Stadium was RB Leipzig , Bayern won 3-0. Niko Kovac was the first person in German football to win the double as a player and as a coach.

    Before the 2019/20 season, Arjen Robben (end of career), Franck Ribéry ( Fiorentina ) and Rafinha ( Flamengo Rio de Janeiro ) left the team that had won the “triple” in 2013. New to FC Bayern Munich were French world champions Lucas Hernández from Atlético Madrid and Benjamin Pavard from VfB Stuttgart , with the former replacing Javi Martínez as a record transfer with a transfer fee of 80 million euros . In addition, Philippe Coutinho was loaned from FC Barcelona for a year . The team started the season with a 2-0 defeat in the DFL Supercup . In the league too, the start of the season was mixed. After the 10th game day, the club separated from Niko Kovač and initially replaced him temporarily with his previous assistant coach Hansi Flick . At that time, FC Bayern was in fourth place with 18 points, four points behind the top of the table. Under Flick, the team found their old strength, finished the first half of the season with 33 points in third place and advanced to the first sixteen in the Champions League as group winners. During the second half of the season, which was interrupted for more than two months between the 25th and 26th match day due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was finally continued with ghost games , Bayern escaped the competition and Flick's contract was extended long-term. On matchday 32, the team secured their eighth championship in a row. FC Bayern ended the season with a 13-point lead over Borussia Dortmund . He scored 100 goals this season after the 1971/72 season with 101 goals. With 49 out of a possible 51 points, the team played the best second half of the season (in 2013 there were also 49 points, but a goal difference that was one goal worse). The German Cup was won by Bayern with a 4: 2 in the final against Bayer Leverkusen for a total of 20 times. A 1-0 win in the final of the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain achieved the second triple in the club's history. At the final tournament in previously were Lisbon of FC Barcelona with 8: 2 and Olympique Lyon 3: 0 conquered. FC Bayern was the first club to win all games in a Champions League competition. In the subsequent UEFA Super Cup he won against Sevilla with 2: 1 after extra time in Budapest and with the 3: 2 win over Borussia Dortmund in the DFL-Supercup could be recovered as in 2013, the fifth title in a year .

    In addition, by winning the 2020 FIFA Club World Cup , FC Bayern succeeded in winning the six-double that was previously only achieved by FC Barcelona (2009) , even if it was postponed to February 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic .

    Champions League Cup 2013

    The first team has played in the Bundesliga since the 1965/66 season . FC Bayern Munich is the most successful German soccer club and German record champions . Since the 30th championship after the introduction of the Bundesliga in 1963/64, he has been allowed to wear five championship stars on his jersey. FC Bayern is the first German club to successfully defend the double . Alongside Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Hamburger SV, it is one of four clubs that have successfully defended their championship title in the Bundesliga. With 826 match days as leader of the table, the club occupies 1st place in the all-time list of leaders (as of the end of the 2020/21 season) and with 3847 points in 1st place in the all-time league table (as of the end of the 2020/21 season) . By winning the championship in the 2019/20 season, he has won more German championships in the Bundesliga at this point (29) than all other teams combined (28). With the cup victory in 2020, FC Bayern won 50 national titles (30 German championships and 20 cup victories). Like Ajax Amsterdam and Juventus Turin , FC Bayern has won all three European Cups as well as the UEFA Super Cup and World Cup . He was also the first to become a FIFA Club World Champion , until Manchester United caught up with winning the UEFA Europa League in 2017. Besides Bayern Munich, only Real Madrid and Ajax Amsterdam have won the European Cup three times in a row. That is why UEFA allows Bayern, among others, to wear a special version of the Starball for Champions League games , in which the number “6” is also entered for the European championship cups or Champions League titles that have been won.

    Former players

    The following lists the former first-team players who are in the official Hall of Fame of FC Bayern Munich.

    He played 404 games for Bayern in the Bundesliga. He was seven times German champion and three times he won the DFB Cup with the team. He was also world champion with the national team in 1990. His “goal of the decade” against Uli Stein from the center circle will not be forgotten .
    "The emperor". With him as captain, Bayern became one of the most successful teams in Europe. In 1974 he led the German national team to victory in their own country. In 1990 he was able to repeat his success as the German team boss at the World Cup in Italy.
    The great director of Bavaria in the late 70s and early 80s. With the Munich team he was five times champion. He also became world champion in his own country in 1974 and scored the important penalty to make it 1-1 in the final against the Netherlands.
    "The Tiger" played twice for Bayern. On his second engagement, as the head of the team, he played a key role in winning the Champions League 25 years after the last victory in the European Cup.
    After his time at VfB Stuttgart, Giovane Elber became the most successful foreign goal scorer in Bundesliga history at Bayern. He scored 133 goals in 252 games for Stuttgart and Bayern. Only on October 23, 2010, this record was exceeded by Claudio Pizarro .
    "Conny" Heidkamp was the captain of the first championship team in 1932. He was also a role model off the field.
    Successful as a player, irreplaceable as a doer. In 30 years as manager and long-time president of FC Bayern, he has played a key role in the team's success. As the first manager of a football club, Hoeneß was voted Manager of the Year in 1999.
    “On, on and on!” Nobody as a player embodied the philosophy of FC Bayern Munich like the “Titan”. His parades brought titles and successes: eight championships and six DFB Cup victories, Champions League victory and World Cup victory in 2001 and the UEFA Cup victory in 1996.
    Lahm came to Bayern at the age of eleven and won a total of 21 titles, including the 2013 triple. The Munich native was also the team's captain from 2011 until his retirement in 2017. He was also the captain of the 2014 world championship team.
    The little French played twice for Bayern. He was an important part of winning the Champions League in 2001. With France he was world and European champion. He also won numerous other titles with Bavaria.
    The "cat from Anzing" still holds the record in uninterrupted games for FC Bayern in the Bundesliga. 442 times in a row he stood between the posts of the record champions. At the 1974 World Cup he was in the goal of the German national team and in the 1974 World Cup final, after the Dutch led the way early on, he kept the box clean for the rest of the game.
    From Gladbach he came to Munich and experienced several successful years there. Then he moved to Italy. He later came back to Bayern after a cruciate ligament rupture. In 1990 he was the key figure in the victory of the German national team at the World Cup in Italy.
    Franz Beckenbauer once said of the "bomber": "Without it we might still be in the old wooden house today". He is the top scorer in the Bundesliga with 365 goals in 427 games and holds the record in one season with 40 goals. In the national team, too, he held the scoring record for a long time with 68 goals in 62 games before he was replaced by Miroslav Klose in 2014 - who needed 137 games for his 71 goals.
    He scored Bayern's first European Cup victory in 1967 and scored three 1-0 in four European Cup finals for the record champions - twice it was the only goal of the game and thus decisive for winning the title.
    He already celebrated successes as a player with Bayern. Then he went to Italy. The transfer fee reorganized the then indebted club. After his active career, he came back and, together with Franz Beckenbauer and Uli Hoeneß, managed to get Bayern back on the road to success in the early 1990s.
    As a young player he came from KSC and stayed with Bayern afterwards. His career was marked by many injuries. He scored once in both 1995/96 UEFA Cup final against Bordeaux. With FC Bayern he won eight championship titles in the Bundesliga.
    He had his big hour in the final of the European Cup in 1974. After it was 1-0 for Atletico Madrid shortly before the end of extra time, he pulled from 25 meters and scored the important 1-1 equalizer. Bayern won the replay 4-0 and the cup for the first time.
    He joined FC Bayern at the age of 13 and made his professional debut five years later. In 500 competitive games he scored 68 goals and won 22 titles. After he missed the decisive penalty in the “Finale dahoam” in 2012, he won the triple a year later and played a key role in the 2014 world championship.

    The Bayern amateurs are the second men's team at FC Bayern Munich and, despite the name, are also a professional team. In league operations, the team has been run as FC Bayern Munich II since 2005 . The team is an U23 team , so only players may be used who are not older than 23 years during the entire game year (July 1st to June 30th). In addition, three older players can be in the game at the same time. The primary purpose of Bayern amateurs is to introduce young talent to the Bundesliga team.

    After eight years in the fourth-class regional league , the team rose again in the 2019/20 season to the third division , which they had already belonged to from 2008 to 2011, and became champions straight away. It is the only second team of a professional club in the third division. From 1973 to 2011 the team always played third-rate.

    The home games are played in the stadium on Grünwalder Straße .


    The first evidence of a second men's team from FC Bayern Munich comes from May 1901, when they were defeated by the first team of FC Bayern with 2:12.

    In 1983 and 1987, the Bayern amateurs reached the final of the German amateur championship . The Bayern amateurs were also qualified for the DFB Cup several times, reaching the second round in 1976/77 and 1993/94 and the quarter-finals in 1994/95 and 2004/05 , with Bundesliga clubs Werder Bremen, VfB Stuttgart, 1. FC Köln and Borussia Mönchengladbach could be defeated.

    When the regional leagues were introduced as the third highest division in 1994, they were directly qualified for the Regionalliga Süd and played in this league until 2008. In the 2003/04 season , the Bayern amateurs won with players like Zvjezdan Misimović , Piotr Trochowski and Paolo Guerrero under coach Hermann Gerland won the championship in the Regionalliga Süd. In 2005, the IFA Shield was won in Calcutta, India , one of the oldest football tournaments in the world, which has been held by the Indian Football Association since 1893 .

    In the 2007/08 season, by finishing eighth, qualification for the newly founded 3rd league was achieved , whose premier season 2008/09 ended in fifth with Gerland's successor, Mehmet Scholl . After an eighth place in the following season, Gerland took over the team again in 2010/11, but relegation back to the Regionalliga Süd could not be prevented. There the Bayern amateurs took a disappointing 14th place. The coach that season was Andries Jonker , formerly assistant to Louis van Gaal in the professional team and temporarily interim coach there after his dismissal.

    From 2012 the Bayern amateurs played in the newly founded Regionalliga Bayern . The coach was again Mehmet Scholl. He reached second place behind the reserve from city rivals 1860 Munich . For the new season, Erik ten Hag was again taken over by a Dutchman. He became champions in his first season and thus reached the promotion games for the 3rd division. After a 0-1 defeat in the first leg at Fortuna Köln , they led 2-0 in the second leg after a goal by Ylli Sallahi in the 88th minute. But in the fourth minute of stoppage time, goalkeeper Lukas Raeder made a serious mistake, which led to the 1: 2 subsequent goal for Cologne and their promotion due to the away goal rule.

    In the second year under ten Hag, the team was runner-up. This was followed by two years under Heiko Vogel , who clearly missed the targeted promotion to the third division with sixth place. After his resignation in March 2017, U16 coach Danny Schwarz took over on an interim basis and finished the season in 3rd place before the former U17 coach Tim Walter took over the team for the new season. Bayern also came second under Walter, behind the professional team of the sixties , which was forcibly relegated to the regional league.

    For the 2018/19 season , Holger Seitz , who had played for the Bayern amateurs from 1996 to 2000, took over. Seitz succeeded with his team in the regional league championship and after eight years in the fourth division returned to the third division after they were able to prevail in the promotion round against VfL Wolfsburg II . A 1: 3 defeat in Wolfsburg was followed by a 4: 1 victory in the second leg after a 0: 1 deficit. Previously, the Premier League International Cup , a competition for U23 teams hosted by the Premier League , was won in England .

    After Holger Seitz moved to the sporting management of the youth department in summer 2019, Sebastian Hoeneß , son of the former Bayern striker Dieter Hoeneß , became the new coach of the Bayern amateurs. Hoeneß had previously trained the A-youth of FC Bayern for two years. After the Bayern amateurs were still in 15th place under his direction during the winter break and thus close to the relegation ranks, the team played a strong second half of the season with 13 wins and only two defeats and was just ahead of the second division promoters Würzburger Kickers and Eintracht Braunschweig at the end of the season first place in the table. Since, according to the DFB rules of play, no second team from a first or second division may be promoted to one of these leagues, the team remained in the third division. The decisive factor for the success was the offensive, with 76 goals the best in the league, while with 60 goals as many as the relegated Chemnitzer FC had to record. Otschi Wriedt contributed 24 goals , who became the top scorer in the third division and moved to Willem II Tilburg in the first Dutch division . Coach Sebastian Hoeneß also broke his tent in Munich at the end of July and went to Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim .

    Hoeneß's successor for the 2020/21 season was his predecessor Holger Seitz on an interim basis. At the beginning of April, the duo of Danny Schwarz and Martín Demichelis, who were previously responsible for the U17 and U19, took over the team that they were supposed to coach from the 2021/22 season onwards, and Holger Seitz concentrated again on his managerial tasks in the youth field. At this point, the team was on the 16th place after the 30th matchday, although they were not on a relegation place only because of the better goal difference. Schwarz and Demichelis scored four points in eight games with four draws, so that the team was relegated to 18th place in the Regionalliga Bayern .

    Youth football


    The youth football department consists of ten youth teams from the A-youth (U19) to the F-youth (U9), all of which are represented in the highest possible divisions. The U14 and U13 do not play league games, but play in a funding round exclusively against the young talent centers of other Bavarian professional clubs. The U11 also does not take part in regular league games, but only plays test games and tournaments.

    The youth department's coaching staff includes Several former professional players are active with Walter Junghans , Christian Saba , Tom Starke and Halil Altintop .

    The A-Juniors became German champions in 2001 , 2002 and 2004 , the B-Juniors achieved this in 1989 , 1997 , 2001 , 2007 and 2017 . Since the introduction of the UEFA Youth League in 2013, FC Bayern's A-Juniors have taken part every year, but only survived the group stage twice. Both times, 2017/18 and 2019/20 , however, the end took place in the following round of 16 game.

    As of 2015, the association built a new youth training center on a vacated part of the Fürst-Wrede barracks on Ingolstädter Straße in the far north of Munich. This is called FC Bayern Campus . Hermann Gerland and Jochen Sauer took over the management of the new young talent center. The youth football department moved from the club's premises on Säbener Straße to the new performance center in the summer of 2017. Part of the new area is located in the neighboring municipality of Oberschleißheim . Instead of Hermann Gerland, who only works as assistant coach for the professional team, Holger Seitz has now taken over the sporting management of the FC Bayern Campus.

    The FC Bayern Campus has eight numbered playing fields, some with natural grass, some with artificial turf. Field 1 is the venue designated stadium with 2,500 covered seats for spectators. There are seating stands on the long sides of the natural grass field, standing room on the south side and the changing wing on the north side. The U19s and U17s play their home games in the venue , usually only the east stand is open to spectators. In the summer of 2018, the stadium, which was originally kept almost entirely in gray, was optically upgraded in red, analogous to the Allianz Arena. Fields 2 and 3 to the south of the stadium are the only ones of the seven other fields to have some uncovered standing steps for spectators. Of the eight playing fields, only four are used for game operations, the other four are used exclusively as training facilities. A special feature is playing field 5, through which the city limits run, so that the southern part of the field is in the city of Munich and the northern part in the municipality of Oberschleißheim.

    The academy building is located north of the stadium and connected to it by a bridge passage . In addition to offices and an athletics and rehabilitation area, the building has 35 apartments for external talent. The so-called club house with a bistro, a sports hall, two mini soccer fields as well as fields for beach soccer and beach volleyball and a small fitness park are also located on the campus site . There is also a biotope area in the extreme northeast of the site.

    Until the opening of the FC Bayern Campus, the club's premises on Säbener Straße were the training facilities for all youth teams and mostly their home ground as well. The older age groups (U19 to U15) sometimes played their home games in the eastern suburbs due to the limited capacity on Säbener Straße; The venues here were the sports park in Aschheim and corresponding venues in Heimstetten and Vaterstetten . From 1996 to 2011 - with a one-year break in the 2004/05 season - the U19 played their home games in the stadium on Grünwalder Straße . Almost all of the U19's home games in the UEFA Youth League took place there from 2013 to 2016 , as well as individual finals for the German A- and B-Juniors championship . With the completion of the FC Bayern Campus, FC Bayern was able to set up a common venue for all youth teams.

    Five of the 27 players in the professional squad for the 2020/21 season come from their own youth. In the starting line-up of the German national team at the 2014 World Cup final , there were five players who were trained by FC Bayern. Again and again, players from the junior teams made it into the squad of the amateur and later the professional team. There they were able to establish themselves as regulars and become national players, including Markus Babbel , Philipp Lahm , Owen Hargreaves , Bastian Schweinsteiger and later Holger Badstuber , Thomas Müller and David Alaba .

    The club organizes a series of national viewing tournaments around the world under the name FC Bayern Youth Cup . The winning team from each country qualifies for the annual FC Bayern Youth Cup World Final in the Allianz Arena. Under the name FC Bayern Football School , FC Bayern operates several soccer schools in Asia and is also active in this regard in North America through its partner Global Premier Soccer . Another football school is being built in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa .

    Beginning of 2018, the youth department entered into a cooperation with the US MLS - Franchise FC Dallas one. It mainly serves the development of talents as well as the acquisition of suitable youth players. The first FC Dallas player to gain a foothold in Munich was defender Chris Richards . Richards subsequently made it to the Munich under-23 team and made his debut for them in the Bundesliga and Champions League, and also played for the senior national team in his home country for the first time .

    In the summer of 2020, accusations of racism within the youth department were made public through the WDR background magazine Sport inside . A long-time youth trainer in a managerial position had, among other things, made racist statements about youth players in an internal chat group over a longer period of time and spread a “climate of fear” within the campus. The club then separated from said coach and initiated internal investigations. After the end of this period, the association announced that it had found significant violations of labor law obligations in part of the campus and announced structural changes and a new start in the area of ​​the U9 to U15.

    Well-known former youth players

    The following is a selection of players who were active in the youth department of FC Bayern for at least a year before their professional debut and who have played at least 50 games in one of the five "big" leagues in the Bundesliga (or before 1963 in the Oberliga ), Premier League , Have completed Primera División , Serie A and Ligue 1 (the year of birth of the player is shown in brackets). Players in bold are in the current professional squad.

    As of December 14, 2020

    Women's team

    The women's soccer team has been in existence since 1970 and has been top notch again since 2000 . In 1976 , 2015 and 2016 she won the German championship, in 2012 she was the German cup winner .


    Model of the soccer field on Leopoldstrasse
    The Grünwald Stadium in 2008

    In the early years of the club, the venues changed quite often. The first game in the club's history took place on the municipal playground on Schyrenstrasse. 1. Munich FC was defeated 5-2 at the time. From 1900 to 1907 they played in Schwabing at Clemensstrasse 50 and then moved to Leopoldstrasse . As more and more spectators came to the club's home games, they moved again from 1920 onwards, without having a permanent home for a long time. For 47 years, from 1925 onwards, the “Reds” found their permanent home in the Grünwalder Stadium , although they were sub-tenants of TSV 1860 Munich until the end of World War II . TSV later had to sell the stadium to the city of Munich for financial reasons. Bavaria's record attendance at the Grünwalder Stadium was more than 50,000 during the 1961/62 season against 1. FC Nürnberg. When the Bundesliga began, only 44,000 spectators were allowed.

    After the completion of the Munich Olympic Stadium for the 1972 Summer Olympics , the Bavarians moved there. Bayern's first game took place on the last day of the 1971/72 season. FC Schalke 04 was the name of the opponent and was beaten 5-1 in front of 79,000 spectators. After the game, the club celebrated its first of many German championships in the Olympic Stadium. By reducing the standing room and making minor adjustments in the stadium, the official stadium capacity was gradually reduced to 69,200 spectators for national games and 59,000 for international games. For reasons of comfort, the club did not release around 6,000 seats that did not offer a good view of the field for sale and only let 63,000 spectators into the stadium for Bundesliga games. From 1995, one year after TSV 1860 Munich was promoted to the Bundesliga again, the city rival also played its home games in the Olympic Stadium, with the Lions using the maximum permitted audience of 69,200 for top games.

    The Olympic Stadium from above

    Over time, the Olympic Stadium has been criticized more and more for being out of date for top-level soccer games. The stadium was only covered on one side and there was no real “football atmosphere” in the wide and open area. The existing tartan track and the resulting large distance between the spectators and the game was a thorn in the side of the fans and those responsible. In addition, there were occasional scheduling conflicts when other events, such as B. Athletics competitions or rock concerts should take place in the stadium. Many such events were relocated to other locations because of the complaints from FC Bayern as the main user (and the largest rent payer with around DM 5 million annually). The most prominent "victim" was the annual rock event Rock im Park , which was finally moved from Munich to Nuremberg. The club has therefore been thinking about its own stadium in Munich for a long time. But for years they couldn't find a suitable place and the city, as the owner of the Olympic venue, was reluctant to have such plans, as the rent payments from FC Bayern represented a lucrative source of income that they did not want to lose. When Germany applied for the 2006 World Cup , the stadium issue came up again, because with the outdated Olympic Stadium, Munich would have been unthinkable as a venue for the tournament. As it was said that there would be no suitable place for a new building anywhere in Munich, a renovation of the Olympic Stadium was first considered. Demolition and a new building under the listed tent roof was also played out. In the end, however, all these plans failed due to the veto of the architect Günter Behnisch . In order to put local politics under pressure, the club then publicly speculated for a while about building the new stadium outside the city limits, for example in Garching or Poing , which would have meant that the city of Munich would have lost a lot of tax revenue and prestige.

    The Allianz Arena in Munich
    The Allianz Arena illuminated in red at night

    So if Munich wanted to become a World Cup venue, a solution had to be found. Various locations were checked for their suitability and until the end, Fröttmaning at the northern end of the city emerged as the location for the new Allianz Arena . After a tough struggle, the compromise solution was lashed to the fact that FC Bayern and 1860 Munich should build and use the new arena together, excluding any use outside of football in order to ensure that the Olympic Stadium has a certain basic capacity at events. This compromise was also received controversially by the public, so that there was a referendum on the new stadium, which was in favor of the new building with around two thirds of the votes. The two clubs bore the cost of building the stadium, while the city of Munich and the state of Bavaria were to pay for the infrastructure. At the beginning, FC Bayern München AG and TSV München von 1860 GmbH & Co. KGaA each had a 50% stake in the stadium company that owns and operates the arena. Both clubs have to pay appropriate rental fees to use the arena, from which the Stadion GmbH in turn serves the loan that financed the construction. However, when the lions ran into financial difficulties again, they sold their 50 percent stake to the co-partner. An initially negotiated buyback option has now also been sold to Bayern. The stadium is therefore under the sole control of FC Bayern Munich.

    Structurally, the stadium is divided into three tiers. The main stand with the entrances and exits consists largely of VIP seats and so-called business seats. The FC Bayern fan curves are each behind the goals. The stadium's seat shells were initially gray, as neither red nor blue would have been reasonable for one or the other of the two clubs. This had the disadvantage that the stadium looked quite cool due to the amount of horror. After the rental agreement with 1860 Munich was terminated prematurely at the end of the 2016/17 season, FC Bayern was able to redesign the seat shells in summer 2018. The entire middle tier was given red seat shells. In addition to the lettering FC BAYERN MÜNCHEN and Mia san mia on the main stand and the press stand, the coat of arms of FC Bayern is shown in the north curve with the seat shells. During the FCB home games, the outside of the stadium lights up in red. Multi-colored lighting is possible, but was subsequently prohibited by the police, as the color changes had led to an increased number of accidents on the nearby A9 motorway.

    The stadium initially held 66,000 spectators. By rearranging the rows of seats and converting some extra-wide business seats to normal seats, the capacity was increased to 69,901 spectators a few months later. At the beginning of the 2012/2013 season, the capacity of the Allianz Arena was increased to 71,137 for national games and to 67,812 for international games thanks to additional rows of seats in the upper tier. In January 2015, the city of Munich approved the use of approx. 4,500 additional seats that had already been installed in summer 2014, which means that the arena can hold 75,000 spectators at national and almost 71,000 at international games. This measure was also carried out in order to meet the criteria for a possible co-hosting of the European Championship 2020 . For the EM 2020 three preliminary round matches and a quarter-final match were awarded to Munich. Due to the corona pandemic , which was rampant in spring 2020 , the tournament was postponed to early summer 2021.

    Since May 25, 2012, the Allianz Arena has housed the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt , a multimedia exhibition on 3,000 square meters with more than 400 exhibits from the history of the club.

    Training ground

    Entrance to the service center of FC Bayern Munich
    FC Bayern Munich training ground

    The FC Bayern training area is located in Munich-Giesing on Säbener Straße. It is often claimed that the site is in the Harlaching district , which however begins a few meters further south.

    The Bavarians have been using the site on Säbener Strasse, the former Harlaching district sports facility, since 1949. In 1970, the construction of the new office and the training area began under President Neudecker. The facility was ready for occupancy on May 17, 1971. For the first time in the history of the association, the office and training ground were united. The site was expanded as early as 1979, followed by a further expansion at the end of the 1980s to create new buildings for the amateur and professional sector. In 2000 there was a fire in the professional wing, causing considerable damage to the changing rooms, the medical department and the sauna. In 2008 a new service center was completed with a new fan shop on an area of ​​250 m², and an underground car park was also built . The new building is 95 meters long, 16 meters wide and around 10 meters high. The underground car park has 270 parking spaces. Directly next to the new building was a new grass pitch with several rows of seats on one side, on which the home games of the B youth teams were played in the 2008/09 season. In addition, a new artificial turf pitch with two small fields for the E and F youth was created. Furthermore, the old club restaurant was converted into a canteen for club employees. There are a total of five grass pitches, an artificial turf pitch and a beach volleyball court on the site. Another artificial turf field existed until 2017, but due to the upcoming move of the youth teams to the new youth performance center, it was converted into an athletics area with a sand pit, a track with tactile surfaces, a tartan track , a football tennis field and a smaller artificial turf area.

    Until 2017, the year the youth department moved to the FC Bayern Campus in the north of the city, the site was the training site for all FC Bayern soccer teams and the home ground for most of the club's youth teams.

    In the past, all professional training sessions were public, but more recently the general trend has established itself, mostly only once a week for public professional training.

    The new sports grounds of FC Sportfreunde München are only separated from the Bayern site by a car park and a footpath. Due to the expansion measures of FC Bayern, the old premises of the Sportfreunde had to give way and was moved a few meters to the south. A little further west, separated by a residential area, is the training area of ​​arch rival TSV 1860 Munich on Grünwalder Straße.

    Adidas, Audi, Allianz and FC Bayern

    There has been a long-term relationship between FC Bayern Munich and the sporting goods manufacturer Adidas . Adidas has been supplying the club without interruption since 1965. From 2002 to 2010 Adidas held a 10 percent stake in FC Bayern München AG, which was acquired for 77 million euros. Between March 2010 and June 2011, Audi AG acquired shares worth 90 million euros in three steps. This was connected with a capital increase from 2.5 million to 27.5 million euros. After this capital increase, FC Bayern München e. V. 81.82 percent and Adidas and Audi each 9.09 percent of the shares in the AG. The Allianz Group , which has given its name to the Allianz Arena since 2005 , acquired 8.33 percent of FC Bayern München AG on February 11, 2014 for EUR 110 million. Since then, all partners have each owned 8.33 percent of the AG.

    The cumulative shares of the three outside investors amount to 25 percent of FC Bayern München AG and are thus below the blocking minority , which means that FC Bayern, which is the main shareholder of FC Bayern München e. V. holds the remaining 75 percent of the shares.

    The club's team bus is sponsored by MAN .

    The current shirt sponsor of FC Bayern is Deutsche Telekom .

    Previous shirt sponsors:

    A large number of sponsors support FC Bayern Munich. The main partners are Deutsche Telekom and the shareholders Adidas , Audi and Allianz . Thus, Adidas provides match and training clothing for all players and coaching staff. The sponsor's clothing must also be worn on other official occasions. The newly signed players Mario Götze and Jan Kirchhoff caused annoyance at Adidas and a lot of media coverage in the summer of 2013 , when they each wore clothing from their private sponsor Nike , the main competitor of Adidas on the world market , when they were officially introduced as newcomers . With the shoes, however, the players have a free choice, so several players play with the shoes of their private sponsor. A photo in the social media in 2015 when five players in the team dressing demonstratively held their Nike shoes in front of the camera also caused annoyance at Adidas and a corresponding echo in the media.

    As a shareholder, Audi is also the vehicle partner of FC Bayern Munich and thus provides all vehicles in the passenger car sector for players and officials who can choose a new vehicle every year.

    Eight sponsors are so-called platinum partners, including the Qatari airline Qatar Airways as a sleeve sponsor on the jerseys since 2018 .

    Spectators and fan culture

    Fans and fan clubs

    No other club in Germany has as many registered supporters as the record champions. 293,000 club members and 4,433 fan clubs with 350,920 fan club members are officially registered at FC Bayern (as of November 15, 2019). There are organized Bayern fans all over Germany, but also around the world. The most famous official fan clubs include the “Red Munichs 89”, “Adler 86 Bretten” and “Die 13 Höslwanger”. In the 1970s there were two leading groups at FC Bayern, the “Südkurve '73” and the “Red Angels”. In 1986, the first pure hooligan group, the so-called “Service Crew Munich” (SCM), came into being in Munich. In the mid-1990s, the ultra movement developed , the first group being the “Munichmaniacs 1996”. Since 2002 there has been an overarching ultra group, the “Schickeria Munich”. But this is not an official fan club. The “Südkurvenbladdl” is published by the “Schickeria Munich”. In 2014, the Schickeria Munich was awarded the Julius Hirsch Prize by the DFB, recognizing the group's commitment in connection with former President Kurt Landauer , who was remembered with two great choreographies. Since 2006, the Schickeria has also organized an anti-racist football tournament for the Kurt Landauer Cup every year . Several times, however, members of the Schickeria also attracted attention through the use of force, for example a bus carrying Nuremberg fans was attacked at a motorway service station in 2007 and a woman was seriously injured.

    As an umbrella organization for fans and fan clubs, there is Club No. 12 with currently over 3200 members. Club No. 12 was founded in 1997, but is not registered as a fan club with FC Bayern Munich. In the years around the turn of the millennium there was a fan home on an old railway site in the Laim district , but this had to give way to a residential area. Both Club No. 12 and the Schickeria Munich now have their own premises in the city. In terms of the number of unorganized fans and supporters worldwide, FC Bayern Munich is also one of the largest clubs internationally.

    For years, Bayern fans and fan clubs fought for a new, pure football stadium, if only because of the expected better atmosphere. In fact, after moving into the Allianz Arena, it became clear that the atmosphere in the stadium was sometimes worse than in the old Olympic Stadium with a career, and this has led to very controversial discussions between the club management and active fans in the past. This may be due to the so-called operetta audience on the one hand, but also to the division and construction of the Allianz Arena on the other. The fans from the south curve of the Olympic Stadium in the new stadium were divided into the south and north curve. In the lower tier of the south curve there was less standing room than in the south curve of the Olympic Stadium, so there was only 6800 standing room for Bundesliga games. With the expansion of the standing room capacity from blocks 112 and 113 behind the gate to the entire lower tier of the south stand, it was hoped that the atmosphere in the Allianz Arena would improve from summer 2014.

    For the home games of the amateur team in the stadium on Grünwalder Straße, there are usually between 100 and 300 active fans on the back straight. They refer to the stadium as the “Hermann-Gerland-Kampfbahn”, a sign of recognition of the work of Hermann Gerland as long-time coach of the team.

    Hardly any evidence can be found for the more frequent claim that Bayern fans are located all over Germany, while Munich itself is more dominated by the number of 1860 fans.


    After the professional clubs were obliged by the DFB to appoint a fan representative , the former goalkeeper Raimond Aumann became the first fan representative of FC Bayern Munich in 1996. After Aumann was massively criticized by the fans, especially after several hundred members of Club No. 12, the Schickeria Munich and the Red Sharks fan club initially canceled their annual tickets (and later returned) due to individual incidents on the fringes of the championship celebration in 2003 were, from October 2003, Andreas Brück, a long-time fan from the Südkurve, became the club's new fan representative. As director of fan and fan club support, Aumann became the latter's supervisor. There are now several employees working in the department, including Simon Müller, Thomas Müller's younger brother.

    Members and stadium newspapers

    FC Bayern publishes its club magazine under the name 51 every month.

    The Rothosen-Blatt appeared as early as 1906 . This had a length of four to six pages and was implemented by the then player and later Honorary President Siegfried Herrmann. The club news appeared between 1921 and 1923 (at that time still as the football department of TV Jahn). From January 1925, the first club magazine was published under the same name. But the budget was quickly used up by the celebrations for the 25th anniversary of the club, so that from May 1925 the members had to do without the magazine for six months. It then appeared monthly until 1933 and then irregularly until 1939; this year it was temporarily suspended due to a lack of money and paper. In the post-war years, the membership magazine was revived under the new name Club-Zeitung . However, due to financial difficulties, the frequency of the publication was initially heavily dependent on advertisers; in 1955 only eight issues appeared. In the following years the situation improved noticeably, so that more issues were published. Only between 1969 and 1972 was there another financially critical situation to which the company responded with a two-month output cycle. The club newspaper was not the only club magazine at this time: the stadium newspaper was also sold in the stadium . Individual players also published their own magazines: Franz Beckenbauer from 1965 the Bayern-Echo (produced by his brother Walter, who also works on 51 ) and Gerd Müller from 1972 the 1-0 . In addition, Munich newspapers ( Abendzeitung , Süddeutsche Zeitung ) published their own stadium magazines. That changed in 1981. Under the direction of the then press spokesman Markus Hörwick, Bayern-Magazin was published for the first time on August 8, 1981, as the only club magazine . It appeared in full gloss and multi-colored, first stapled and later bound. It was published for all Bundesliga home games. In addition, there were special editions for certain national and international home games, which were later discontinued. For many years, Bayern-Magazin was sold as a stadium newspaper in front of the stadium entrances, which was later discontinued for cost reasons. In September 2018, the members' magazine appeared for the first time under the new name 51 . The new name is based on Säbener Straße 51, the home address of FC Bayern. In addition to the new name, the volume has been increased by 50% to a good 120 pages, and the graphics and categories have been completely modernized. While the Bayern magazine appeared on the occasion of the home games, the 51 is published monthly regardless of the day of the match. The digital daily newspaper Pack ma’s appears for every home game .

    In May 2019, the 51 was awarded the BCM Gold Award.

    Club songs and chants

    The current official club song is Stern des Südens , composed by Willy Astor and sung by Claus Lessmann , the lead singer of the hard rock band Bonfire . Before that, the song Forever Number One was the club's anthem for years . The song Stern des Südens is on the home game CD of FC Bayern Fans United and was also released as a single . The unofficial anthem is the song Mir san die Bayern . Also known is the old hit by Franz Beckenbauer . Nobody can separate good friends . The FC Bayern song with the Ernst Jäger choir and orchestra had already been published in 1965 .

    Almost all the songs in the lower tier of the south curve are vocalized by both the “Schickeria Munich” and a number of older fans. There are also active fans in the lower tier of the north curve, while the spectators in the seating areas are mostly passive.

    Fan rivalries and friendships

    TSV 1860 Munich is the local rival . The first game between the two clubs took place on September 21, 1902 and ended with a 3-0 win for Bayern. There is also a certain regional rivalry with 1. FC Nürnberg . The first duel took place in 1901 as part of a friendly game for the Bavarian championship, which FC Bayern won 6-0 away.

    In relation to Germany as a whole, the rivalry with Borussia Dortmund has increased considerably since the 1990s. The main reasons for this are the growing up of BVB to become Bavaria's biggest competitor in terms of sport and economy, as well as the duel for national supremacy that lasted from 2010 to 2013 in particular.

    From the late 1960s onwards there was a friendship with the fans of Hertha BSC , which however largely fell asleep by the 1990s at the latest. From the early 1970s there was a friendship with the fans of VfL Bochum , which is no longer cultivated on a broad basis.

    At the ultra level, there are friendships between the “Schickeria Munich” and corresponding groups of VfL Bochum, FC St. Pauli , FC Carl Zeiss Jena , Girondins Bordeaux and the lower-class Italian club SS Sambenedettese .

    FC Bayern as "enemy image"

    The club, as by far the most successful German club team, is sometimes confronted with undisguised hatred and envy. The so-called " Bayern-Dusel " for surprising game turns and winning goals in the last minutes of the game is almost proverbial . In a figurative sense, the term is also used in other sports and teams and is also addressed in the case of temporary absence. On the one hand, the background is given to the nature of football, in which the victories of actually superior teams are often tighter and more dramatic than in other sports. According to those responsible, players and fans of FC Bayern Munich, late goals and victories are not “luck”, but the result of strong nerves, stamina and experience. Competitors sometimes also support the thesis that the alleged Bayern dud is based on a latent or deliberate preferential treatment of the financially strong and opinionated Bavarians by the German Football Association (DFB) in general and by referees in particular. In this context, there is sometimes talk of an alleged Bayern bonus. That such a celebrity bonus actually exists has also been scientifically proven.

    The club is regularly accused of being based largely on the targeted weakening of league competitors by poaching their greatest performers. In February 2014, Dortmund's managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke declared, contrary to earlier statements, that FC Bayern had set itself the goal of “destroying” BVB and permanently eliminating it as a competitor. His statements were controversial in the fan scene. The chairman of the supervisory board of the ALBA Berlin basketball club , Axel Schweitzer , expressed a similar opinion when FC Bayern moved four players to switch from ALBA to Bayern at the same time by means of "abstruse salaries". In fact, President Uli Hoeneß admitted that the motive of weakening opponents had occasionally played a role in player transfers in the past. In 2007, the then Aachen player Jan Schlaudraff was only bought to “wipe out” competitor Werder Bremen and “to show that nobody could hold a candle to Bayern”.

    The conviction of President Uli Hoeneß for tax evasion in 2014 and the customs offense of CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge in 2013 as well as the Kirch affair in 2003 provided fuel for the enemy image . In 2019, the historian Hans Woller also made serious accusations , who in his biography of Gerd Müller presented tax frauds by FC Bayern with the knowledge and approval of the Bavarian state government and high-ranking top officials. Those responsible at FC Bayern Munich have not yet commented on the allegations, but according to his own statement, Woller was denied access to the club's archive.

    Some music groups wrote humorous songs against FC Bayern Munich, such as Norbert und die Feiglinge Bayern has lost (1995) (later sung by the Schröders in 2001 and the Original Deutschmachern 2000). The Original Deutschmacher also sang the song Who the Fuck is Bayern after Who the Fuck is Alice by Gompie . A well-known German fan song - performed based on the melody of the Beatles' song Yellow Submarine - is Pulls Bayern's Lederhosen Off , also on record as a song by Heinz Werner Schneider . Ingo Appelt also interpreted the song Du bist ein Hoeness , which describes the name of the long-time Bayern manager as a dirty word.

    Die Toten Hosen , whose blacksmith Bavaria is one of the most successful, play a special role here . Campino , the singer of the Toten Hosen, later commented as follows: “You can only deal properly with Bayern Munich as an enemy if you remain unobjective. Once you stick to the facts, it becomes difficult. During the Nazi era, for example, FC Bayern played perhaps the best role of all German football clubs. Jewish members were still protected here after they had long been excluded elsewhere. I also know from Didi Hamann and Markus Babbel how seriously Uli Hoeneß takes his social responsibility towards the players. "

After relegation from the south group of the two-tier basketball Bundesliga at the end of the 1973/74 season, FC Bayern only managed to return to the 1st Bundesliga in 1987. At the end of the 1988/89 season, the first division players could not prevent relegation again. Since the beginning of the 2011/12 season , FC Bayern has been represented in the basketball Bundesliga again .
