How did you become an FC Bayern fan & what made you start a fan club?

I was born in Munich, so I grew up with my dad telling me about FC Bayern and had a lot of Bavarian pride; I ‘ve been a die-hard fan all my life, representing Bayern wherever I go.

In 2012 I had the idea of starting a fan club after hearing about the New York fan club. At the time, I was watching every single Bayern game and I had already been telling everyone in school about FC Bayern because many of them didn’t even know what FC Bayern was. By starting the fan club I also wanted to show others that they don’t need to be an adult to share their passion. You don’t even need a big city to start a fan club. As of now Princeton is one of the smallest cities to have a fan club. So if you really wish there was a club near you, just start one! The results will amaze you!

What kind of activities is your club engaged in beyond watching the matches?

When FC Bayern came to the U.S. last summer and played at Red Bull Arena we had many of our members come which was very exciting. For many of them it was the first time watching FC Bayern play live. It also gave us an opportunity to invite friends and meet people from other fan clubs.  We also plan to attend the annual New York Steuben Parade along with many other fan clubs along the East Coast.

How does your FC Bayern fan culture fit in within your local soccer culture?

In Princeton, soccer is the most popular sport. This is because so many internationals come every year to the University and the Institute for Advanced Studies, who come from soccer loving countries. This is great because it means that almost all young kids play soccer at some point, which can spark a love for a team like FC Bayern.
