Rudolf Schels was elected to succeed long-serving deputy vice-president Bernd Rauch on the FC Bayern Munich members’ club executive committee in November 2012, and succeeded Karl Hopfner as senior vice-president in May 2014. The entrepreneur from Regensburg has been “a good friend of FC Bayern for many years,” former club president Uli Hoeneß commented. Schels has been a member of Germany’s biggest club for more than ten years and joined the Advisory Board in 2009. “It's a huge honour to serve the club," commented Schels, “my passion for FC Bayern over the decades could hardly be greater."
