Lars Klingbeil appointed to FC Bayern München eV advisory board
At its last meeting, the FC Bayern München eV executive committee appointed Lars Klingbeil to the club's advisory board. The 44-year-old chair of the SPD (Social Democratic Party of Germany) has been an FC Bayern member since 2012.
FC Bayern München eV president Herbert Hainer: "In Lars Klingbeil, we are very pleased to have appointed a personality who is very well connected socially, politically and economically throughout Germany. We are sure he will enrich our advisory board with his young, refreshing perspective and new outlook. Furthermore, he is an absolute authority on football and has been an FC Bayern fan from an early age - red is not only his political colour."
Social Democratic Party of Germany chair Lars Klingbeil: "I would like to thank Herbert Hainer and the FC Bayern München eV executive committee for appointing me to my club's advisory board. FC Bayern sets sporting standards that achieve global recognition, but not only that: it is a figurehead for our country. In the past decades, the club has shown that it is capable of constantly questioning itself, accepting advice and thus remaining successful. I would now like to travel this path even more closely, offering my perspective on setting a course for the future of the club."
