Bayern were growing, moving into a new state-of-the-art stadium and developing the training ground at Säbener Straße.
The first ten years of the new millennium witnessed unparalleled success for the club, both on and off the pitch, as Bayern bounced back from their Champions League final loss.
The 1990s were a decade of constant turmoil that saw eight different head coaches mixed with both triumph and defeat.
After a domestic drought lasting five years, general manager Uli Hoeneß and the duo of Paul Breitner and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge led FCB back to the path of success.
A successful campaign in the club’s first Bundesliga season in 1965/66 yielded a third-place finish and the start of Bayern's golden era with players like Müller, Maier and Beckenbauer.
After war and almost financial ruin, FC Bayern came through to become one of Germany's biggest club.
