Training till 9 December
While all the players called up for the World Cup, which begins on Sunday, 20 November, are preparing for the tournament with their national teams, the Bayern players not involved have been given two weeks off. Sven Ulreich, Marcel Sabitzer and the rest will then return to Säbener Straße for training between 28 November and 9 December. Players who are knocked out of the World Cup in the groups or round of 16 will possibly join up with that training group. The first team are then off from 10 December.
Pre-season from 3 January, training camp in Doha
Bayern will commence their preparations for the second half of the season on 3 January. The players will report on that day for medical checks and performance diagnostics. It's still to be decided when World Cup participants will re-join training, with decisions to be made on a case-by-case basis. Julian Nagelsmann and his team then head for a six-day training camp in Doha from 6 January.
The team then return to regular action and their quest for an 11th straight Bundesliga title on 20 January away at Leipzig.
