To mark the 10th anniversary of the treble and the recently released documentary ‘Generation Wembley’, three major events including watch parties were held in China. On 21 October, FC Bayern held a major event in the form of a special exhibition to mark the 10th anniversary of Wembley at the FC Bayern Taicang Football School in Taicang, a city around 50 kilometres north-west of Shanghai. Around 200 fans from Taicang, Shanghai, Suzhou and the surrounding area attended the opening of the exhibition. Among the guests was Mao Yaping, Secretary of Taicang City. Due to the successful start, the exhibition will be extended until 10 November 2023 and will feature more than 30 special exhibits from the 2013 treble-winning season, brought together from Munich and China. Also on display are pictures portraying Chinese fans watching the 2013 Champions League final.

In addition to the exhibition opening, a large watch party was held in Taicang on 21 October to mark the release of the documentary ‘Generation Wembley’, which was attended by around 100 fans. Almost 70 Bayern supporters also gathered in Nanjing, a city in eastern China, on 22 October to watch the club's path to its first ever treble.

While the two events in Taicang and Nanjing were held on the first weekend after the release of the documentary, another watch party took place the following weekend as part of the Paulaner Oktoberfest in the metropolis of Shenzhen. Around 120 participants listened to the stories of Bayern legends Philipp Lahm, Arjen Robben, Franck Ribéry and Co. as part of the documentary and then watched the 8-0 spectacle against Darmstadt.
