FC Bayern hosted the club’s very first Oktoberfest watch party in the United States as the team took on Hertha Berlin. Almost 400 fans filled the Zum Schneider Oktoberfest tent on the East River in New York on Sunday morning to celebrate the Bavarian tradition and support the team back in Germany.
FOX Sports presenters Kate Abdo and Eric Wynalda hosted the pregame and halftime show live on location in traditional Bavarian dress while guests enjoyed Bavarian food and refreshments and got up close and personal with the team’s trophies and mascot. Three lucky fans won money-can’t-buy prizes including, a James signed jersey and a team signed jersey.
Also in attendance was FC Bayern legend and Head of Fan Services Raimond Aumann who traveled from Munich to experience the event and meet with the fan clubs, “I’m both overwhelmed and extremely grateful by the amazing support of our fans here in the US. The turnout at the event was phenomenal! We are a family and it means a lot to have them by our side.”
