US talents visit FC Bayern
49 teenagers from the US experienced the FC Bayern family up close and personal during their seven-day trip to Germany. The group consisting of 20 boys and 29 girls visited Munich as part of FC Bayern's partnership with Global Premier Soccer (GPS). The visitors enjoyed a diverse programme including training sessions with FCB's youth coaches as well as friendlies against local clubs.
The teenagers were in for action off the pitch too, for example sightseeing in Munich and Nuremberg and a visit to the adidas head office in Herzogenaurach. But the Allianz Team Presentation was the absolute highlight as the 49 youngsters were up close and personal with their idols.
Two girls from the group participate in the FC Bayern ID Programme, which focuses on the promotion of young talent. FCB youth coaches picked the two youngsters at the residential camp in the US in July. They exercised with the U-17s of the German record champions. A special highlight for the two girls was a meet and greet with Germany international Lena Lotzen.
