As part of a ten-day trip to Germany, 23 Japanese U-17 players are currently visiting FC Bayern. The players from Teikyo Dasain High School in Yamanashi prefecture, situated a little to the west of Tokyo, completed training sessions at the Säbener Strasse facility on Tuesday and Thursday, supervised by the club’s youth coaches. The group’s programme also includes a visit to the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt and a tour of the Allianz Arena. The Japanese talents will continue their introduction to German football through 22 November.

UEFA awards for Behringer and Abbé
Two FC Bayern Women’s stars have been recognised by European football’s governing body UEFA for distinguished service to international football. On Thursday 26 November, Melanie Behringer will receive her award prior to Germany’s meeting with England in Duisburg. All former and current Germany internationals with 100 or more full international caps will also be recognised. Behringer has made 112 appearances for her country to date. In late October, FCB’s Caroline Abbé was presented with the UEFA award: the defender has 111 Switzerland caps to her name. The award was introduced in the men’s game in 2011 and now encompasses the women’s game as well.
