Mitch to Berlin

Capital switch for Weiser

Bayern youngster Mitchell Weiser has found a new club. The 21-year-old, whose contract with Germany’s biggest club expires on 30 June this year, is to join FCB’s Bundesliga rivals Hertha BSC on a three-year deal keeping him in the German capital until 2018. After moving to Munich from FC Köln in the summer of 2012 Weiser made a total of 16 Bundesliga appearances and scored one goal for the Reds. FC Bayern wishes Mitch all the best for the next chapter of his career in Berlin!

All FCB Women at World Cup reach last 16

Nine FC Bayern Women players are representing their countries at the Women’s World Cup in Canada – and all nine will now feature in the last sixteen. Melanie Behringer, Melanie Leupolz, Lena Lotzen and Leonie Maier from group winners Germany face Sweden on 20 June in the first knockout round. Japan and Mana Iwabuchi also topped their group and will be favourites when they play the Netherlands with FCB striker Vivianne Miedema on 23 June. Nora Holstad and Norway came second in their group behind the Germans and have progressed to a last sixteen meeting with England on 22 June. Like Miedema, Caroline Abbé and Vanessa Bürki of Switzerland claimed a Round of 16 berth as one of the best third-placed teams. However, the Swiss face a tough hurdle when they take on hosts Canada on 21 June.
