FC Bayern has today announced that the club’s U23 side will play against FC Dallas on Saturday February 9, as part of the German team’s week-long winter training camp in Frisco.
Last year, the European powerhouse and founding Major League Soccer Member announced a comprehensive development partnership. This training camp and fixture is part of the collaboration, exposing players to different coaching styles and settings to enhance their development.
“We are delighted to announce this fixture, which marks another big step in our unique partnership,” commented FC Bayern Munich’s President of the Americas, Rudolf Vidal. “Our partnership has already seen success with five FC Dallas players training in Munich and the loan signing of Chris Richards, showcasing our commitment to giving young players a pathway to professional soccer both in the United States and Germany,” he added.
FC Dallas head coach Luchi Gonzalez said; “We’re thrilled to host Bayern Munich at Toyota Soccer Center in February as we prepare our first team for the 2019 season,” said. "This is a phenomenal opportunity for our players to develop their chemistry and get minutes against an outstanding opponent”.
FC Bayern will face Dallas’ home team at Toyota Stadium, which is one of the first soccer-specific stadiums built in the United States.
“We are looking forward to the week in Dallas and especially to the match against FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium. For our players, the experience of playing against a team of many local U.S. talents is very attractive and a good test,” said FC Bayern U23 coach, Holger Seitz.
