While last-minute preparations for the opening weekend of Oktoberfest are under way at the Theresienwiese, less than a mile away at the Audi Dome, the final preparations for the new basketball season are taking place. On 2nd October – the final Friday of the Oktoberfest period, Bayern begins their campaign with a home game against cup winner Oldenburg (20:15 CEST). To make the wait a little more bearable for the most loyal of FCBB fans, all 2015/16 season-ticket holders were invited to team practice at the Audi Dome on Wednesday evening.
The event also saw the whole of coach Svetislav Pesic’s team come together for the first time: After EuroBasket stragglers Anton Gavel and Paul Zipser rejoined practice on Monday, Alex Renfroe’s return on Tuesday evening meant the entire Bayern roster is now in place.
The season-ticket holders also witnessed another premiere: Kit suppliers adidas presented Bayern Basketball’s new away and Euroleague jerseys for the new season. The new gear is now available in the online shop and at stores.
“I really like the new jerseys. I can hardly wait to finally wear them on the court,” said captain Bryce Taylor, who took photos and signed autographs with the rest of his teammates as the event wound down.
