Bundesliga debut for FCB Women at Allianz Arena
FC Bayern Women will make their Bundesliga bow at the Allianz Arena on 14 October. The German champions host Eintracht Frankfurt on Matchday 4 of the Google Pixel Women's Bundesliga, with kick-off at 18:00 CEST. After three games in the Champions League, which were attended by around 60,000 fans, the Allianz Arena will now host a Women's Bundesliga fixture for the first time. Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday 26 July (more information to follow).
Jan-Christian Dreesen, FC Bayern CEO: "On Monday the German women's national team start their World Cup campaign, and of course we've got our fingers crossed for our players Lina Magull, Lea Schüller, Klara Bühl and Sydney Lohmann. When all the World Cup participants are back here, they and the whole team can look forward to another big stage, because for the first time a Bundesliga match involving our women is being held at the Allianz Arena. It's the next and also logical step in the development of women's football at FC Bayern Munich."
Bianca Rech, head of FC Bayern's women's department: "We're very excited about our Bundesliga debut at the Allianz Arena, and we can again count on the support of a large number of fans in a big match against Eintracht Frankfurt. We're always thinking about when it makes sense to move from the FC Bayern Campus to the Allianz Arena. The time is now right for a league showpiece. With the experiences of our three appearances there so far, we're sure the match against Frankfurt will be another milestone.
FCB Women contest the opening game of the new Bundesliga season on 15 September away to SC Freiburg. Before the big match against Eintracht on 14 October, the German champions have another home fixture against 1. FC Köln (29 September-2 October) as well as a trip to SGS Essen (6-9 October). The meeting with Frankfurt will also be a first outing at the Allianz Arena for all the team's summer signings, including Pernille Harder, Magdalena Eriksson and Sam Kerr.
Harder and Eriksson have already familiarised themselves with the Campus - soon it'll be the Allianz Arena!
