FC Bayern in mourning for Walter Fembeck
FC Bayern is in mourning for the club's longstanding managing director Walter Fembeck. The Vienna native, who worked at FC Bayern from 1957 to 1983, passed away at the age of 98 on Thursday night. "Walter Fembeck rendered great service to FC Bayern. Our thoughts are with his family. We will always honour his memory," said chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
FC Bayern became an international top club during Fembeck's tenure, celebrating six German championship titles and the same number of DFB Cup victories. In addition, FC Bayern won the European Champions' Cup three times, the Intercontinental Cup and the European Cup Winners' Cup.
There will be a minute's silence ahead of the Bundesliga match against FC Schalke at the Allianz Arena. The FC Bayern players will bear black armbands in memory of Walter Fembeck.
