Second Day, First Rain in Florida

Tactics, Thunder & Training

The second full day at the Allianz Winter Camp in Gainesville, Florida proceeded in two parts. While an intensive tactics unit and arduous goalkeeper training took place in the morning, the previously forecast thunderstorms resulted in afternoon training taking place in the gymnasium.

The team has been working on coordination and gymnastics in the spacious and well-equipped facilities of the University of Florida. A discussion on tactics following the workout topped off the day of training just before dinner, allowing the evening to be used for the players’ own leisure. Soccer continues into the evening as well, as some of the players faced off against members of the marketing and media team in a friendly video game competition.

The first test for the FC Bayern women will take place this Saturday at 6 pm EST (0:00 CET) against university team the Florida Gators. Head coach Becky Burleigh promises “No #DeflateGate here!”, and together with coach Thomas Wörle will make sure the game balls contain regulation pressure.
