FCB set up base in Chicago
Suits, True Detective, Fargo, The Big Bang Theory: the Munich men had enough time to check the programme in their dedicated Airbus on the nine-hour flight to Chicago. The Germans record champions have arrived in the US! The Lufthansa jet touched down at the O'Hare International Airport after a very smooth flight at 16.00 local time (23.00 CET). After the obligatory immigration formalities the Bayern party transferred directly to the team hotel.
The FCB pros broke into a sweat in temperatures of 30 degrees, and they did not even exercise. Carlo Ancelotti's troops had the evening off in the third most populous city in the States. On Tuesday the German record champions will train on American soil for the first time since 2014, and fcbayern.de is up close and personal!
“If you want to compete with the biggest names you have to travel the world,” commented FCB board director for strategy and internationalisation Jörg Wacker. FC Bayern have built up a significant fan base outside Germany, “and we have to give them the chance of seeing our stars and upcoming talents live.” Everyone at the club is looking forward to an exciting Audi Summer Tour!
