Accolade for FCB basketballers and footballers
"I'm glad to be present at a special event like this," Sven Ulreich summarised on Thursday evening. The 30-year-old keeper represented the FC Bayern team at the award ceremony by the city of Munich for sportspersons. 280 athletes were honoured for their performances last year, with FC Bayern awarded for the championship title.
"The accolade is an honour. You see how many athletes were honoured here, and how much passion they have to advance and to win," Ulreich said. However, he was not the only FCB representative to be presented with an award. The FC Bayern basketballers too were honoured for last year's championship title and the cup triumph.
"This accolade is very important. The basketballers' double was special, it was an outstanding performance," said FCB deputy vice-president Prof Dr Dieter Mayer, who accepted the trophy in the name of the basketballers, who took on FC Barcelona at the Audi Dome at the same time.
