Georg Niedermeier (# 32) FC Bayern Munich Champions League 2008/09

After 68 regional league games for FC Bayern Munich II and the championship title of the Regionalliga-Süd 2003/04, he made his debut in the newly created on July 27, 2008 (1st matchday) in a 2-1 home win over 1. FC Union Berlin 3rd league , where he led the team as captain on the field.

In addition, Niedermeier was in the Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League squad of the first team at Bayern Munich several times .

In January 2009, Niedermeier signed a new contract with the Munich-based company, which allowed them to keep him until 2012.

VfB Stuttgart

On a loan deal made on January 30, 2009, Niedermeier initially played until the end of the 2009/10 season for VfB Stuttgart , for which he under head coach Markus Babbel on March 1, 2009 (22nd matchday) in a 2-0 win in the away game against the rivals Karlsruher SC made their debut in the Bundesliga. In his first half year with the Swabians he was to play four more times in the Bundesliga before an ankle injury from the home game against Borussia Dortmund forced him to end the season prematurely.

VfB Stuttgart ended the season after a furious second half of the season in 3rd place in the table, which means qualifying for the 2010 UEFA Champions League Playoffs .

In the following season 2009/10 he not only played twelve times for the Swabians in the championship, but also made his debut in UEFA on November 24, 2009 (5th matchday) in a 2-0 win in the away game against Glasgow Rangers Champions League and reached the UEFA Champions League round of 16 against FC Barcelona with the Swabians . In his 12 starting eleven appearances in the Bundesliga championship, Niedermeier only left the field as a loser once. He scored his first Bundesliga goal in a 1-1 draw at Borussia Dortmund on August 22, 2009 (3rd matchday).

During the season, on February 11, 2010, the efforts of VfB Stuttgart were rewarded and Niedermeier signed a 4-year contract with VfB Stuttgart dated until June 2014 . The transfer fee should have been around € 3.5 million.

In the coming 2010/11 season, Georg Niedermeier was to play a total of 42 times for VfB Stuttgart. He scored a total of 5 goals and prepared 5 more and was consequently, together with Mats Hummels, the most dangerous central defender in the Bundesliga.

He extended this contract with VfB on January 9, 2013 to the end of June 2016. In the 5: 1 on March 5, 2016 in the home game against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim , Niedermeier scored two goals for the first time in a Bundesliga game. After relegation to the second division, he left VfB Stuttgart in June 2016.

In August 2016 he moved to the Bundesliga club SC Freiburg .

Niedermeier made his debut for the sports club when he came on in the 78th minute, in a 3-0 defeat against 1. FC Köln on September 16, 2016. After a good start to the 2016/17 season, Niedermeier made only three more starts for the team before he sustained a long-term back injury in a training session at the beginning of October, which forced him to watch most of the first half of the season and, after a brief comeback in January, even the second half of the season from the stands. Nonetheless, Niedermeier proved to be a relentless motivator - both coaches and officials paid tribute to his role while the team finished a remarkable season in seventh place and were given the opportunity to qualify for the UEFA Europe League the following season. At the end of the 2016/17 season, Niedermeier only made seven appearances in all competitions due to his injury.

The 2017/18 season in Freiburg, however, became a great challenge for Niedermeier, as the club's policy changed massively when his move to the later Bundesliga club Union Berlin could not be finalized. Due to his salary and the fact that young players had surprised the year before, Niedermeier was removed from the team to force a change. However, his time became even more of a nightmare when strangers set Niedermeier's Mercedes AMG on fire in front of his apartment. He left the club at the end of the 2017/18 season

Together with the other European legionaries Keisuke Honda, Olá Toivonen and Raul Baena, he went to the Hyundai A-League Championship 2018/19. Despite many injury-related failures during the season, Victory took third place in the regular season and was able to participate in the 2018/19 final series. It was Georg Niedermeier who scored the opening goal in the quarter-final home win against Wellington Phoenix on May 3, 2019 at AAMI Park. Two weeks later, however, in the semi-final knockout game against eventual champion and greatest competitor Sydney FC at the Jubilee Oval, Melbourne Victory lost out.

During the 2018-2019 season, Niedermeier had to struggle with two concussions and, after a good start in the league, tore his metatarsal ligament in a rough duel. He made a total of 19 appearances and scored two goals. On May 28, 2019, Melbourne Victory FC announced that Niedermeier will be leaving the club after the 2018/19 Hyundai A-League season has ended. He left Melbourne Victory at the end of the 2018–19 A League season

National team

He was used three times for the U-19 national team ; for the first time on September 15, 2004 in Ratingen in the 2-0 defeat against the Spanish team; against whom he also played two days later in the 1: 4 defeat in Duisburg. His last game lasted seven minutes due to his late substitution in the 1-1 draw against Serbia and Montenegro on October 25, 2004 in Velenje.
