FC Bayern legend Bixente Lizarazu was in New York to watch Der Klassiker with fellow fans from around the city at a viewing party together with partners adidas. The former World Cup and Champions League winner and current FC Bayern ambassador watched a thrilling game with over 300 fans at Upper90 in Astoria, Queens.
"I'm very happy to be here in New York. This game is the best game you can play in the Bundesliga. When you're playing against Dortmund it's more than a match," said Lizarazu at the event. Indeed, it turned out to be quite the spectacle with FC Bayern putting on a memorable display and winning 4-1.
"When you're a Bayern player you're used to having a relationship with fans," said the Frenchman. FC Bayern have the largest network of official fan clubs in the US and Canada and organize regular events and viewing parties for supporters since the US office opened back in 2014.
