FC Bayern is a company, but in the first instance it is a club with the membership at its core. With more than 270,000 members, FC Bayern is the biggest club in the world. From the earliest days, the club has met its responsibilities to the community by developing young talent and emphasising grassroots sport. This is by no means restricted to football. FC Bayern teams actively compete in basketball, handball, chess, veterans’ football, sports skittles, table tennis and gymnastics, some at elite national levels. And with more than 100 referees, the club boasts Europe's biggest refereeing section. FC Bayern as a club is firmly anchored in grassroots sport.
