Championship shield on display in the Erlebniswelt

The championship shield is back where it belongs: dahoam, at the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt! No less a personality than top scorer Robert Lewandowski delivered the trophy to the FCB club museum on Tuesday lunchtime. Three days after the official handover at the Allianz Arena the milestone shield, symbolising the 25th Bundesliga title and the fourth German championship in a row, took up residence in a display cabinet in themuseum’s Via Triumphalis. “I'm delighted to be bringing the shield here,” Lewandowski said on his visit to the Erlebniswelt. FCB fans can marvel at the original Meisterschale before it is replaced by an official replica at the beginning of August.
