The FC Bayern Annual General Meeting takes place at 7 pm next Thursday at Munich's AUDI Dome. The agenda includes the customary reports, but it is also a year featuring elections to the Executive Committee of the members’ club. Apropos this, president Uli Hoeneß hosted a press conference at the Säbener Strasse on Thursday to announce recommended changes to the management of the club.
Current vice-presidents Dr Fritz Scherer and Bernd Rauch are stepping down from their positions. “Some months ago, Fritz Scherer and Bernd Rauch informed me they will not stand for re-election," Hoeneß advised, “I accepted this with great regret. Since then, we’ve been identifying adequate replacements."
Karl Hopfner, who retires as deputy chairman of FC Bayern Munich AG on 31 December, will stand as the proposed successor to Dr Scherer as senior vice-president. “I'll be happy to accept should I be elected," commented Hopfner, preparing to serve the club in a voluntary function after 30 years on the full-time staff. As senior vice-president, the 60-year-old would also be a member of the FC Bayern Munich AG Supervisory Board.
