FC Bayern prepare for new season

As quickly as last season ended a new one is beginning for FC Bayern Basketball as they prepare for the new season. A practice match has already been scheduled: on September 5, Svetislav Pesic's team will face Rheinstars Köln.

Like Bayern, the Rheinstars can also look back on a successful season. With 22 wins from 22 games the ambitious Köln side achieved promotion from the second to the first Regionalliga just a year after the club's formation. Bayern are familiar with their opponents, having faced them in a preseason match last year, running out 101:37 winners.

"It is absolutely crazy and a great honor that we can welcome FC Bayern Basketball ahead of the new season. It is a great gesture from Svetislav Pesic and the whole organization whom I again want to thank," said Rheinstar managing director Stephan Baeck.

"We're happy to be able to help Stephan and the Rheinstars. The return of professional basketball in Köln is a great and exciting project that Köln Basketball supporters deserve. We did very well last year in Köln and if we can help excite the Köln fans then we are glad to do it," said sport and managing director Marko Pesic.

Tickets for the game can be found on the home page of the Rheinstars.
