FC Bayern Women: Partnership with Tigres
FC Bayern are starting a multi-year partnership in women's football with Club Tigres UANL Femenil, five-time Liga MX champions. The collaboration between the two powerhouse clubs will begin with a friendly match on January 21 2023 in Monterrey.
“Mexico is home to a large FC Bayern fanbase and therefore is an important market for us. As we work to establish more presence within the country we are looking to align with the right partners. Tigres UNAL Femenil are leaders in women’s football and we look forward to bringing this initiative to life,” commented Andreas Jung, Executive Board Member for Sponsorship and Marketing.
Bianca Rech, FC Bayern Women sporting director: "The progress made by women's football in Mexico is a wonderful success story - and it’s far from over. In Tigres Femenil, we have gained an ambitious partner and a perfect match for FC Bayern in this exciting area of growth. We share the same passion and aspirations in and for women's football, and are very much looking forward to our joint projects in the future.”
“We are pleased to announce this partnership with FC Bayern Frauen. Together we aim to share best practice, create positive change within our communities and create unique experiences for our young players. FC Bayern is a huge global brand and we look forward to taking Tigres Femenil beyond the Americas,” said Mauricio Culebro, President of Tigres UANL.
With this cooperation agreement, FC Bayern Women and Tigres Femenil hope to continue to grow the women’s game globally as well as utilizing football as a vehicle for social development in Latin America. Additionally, every year three Tigres Femenil players and coaches will travel to Munich to train and share experiences at the FC Bayern campus alongside the FC Bayern Women.
