Today FC Bayern revealed the full schedule for the 2019 Audi Summer Tour, taking part in the International Champions Cup and playing three games in Los Angeles, Houston and Kansas City. The game in Kansas City will mark the first time an ICC game will take place there and also happens to be the home of the Hunt family, owners of the Kansas City Chiefs and FC Dallas.
The Hunt family have been partners of FC Bayern since the launch of the Elite Player Development Program with their Major League Soccer side in February 2018. Earlier this year, Clark Hunt extended a gracious invitation for FC Bayern to play one of our ICC fixtures at his Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium and the club was honored to accept.
“The Hunt family are not only pioneers in American sports but they are also part of the FC Bayern family. We are delighted to accept their invitation, and it will be an honor for us to play at the home of the Kansas City Chiefs this summer,” said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, CEO.
“I am always amazed by the incredible atmosphere and fan culture around FC Bayern,” Hunt said. “We are very familiar with the intense passion of sports fans in Kansas City, and that includes a continually expanding interest in soccer. I’m very pleased that we will be able to host FC Bayern at Arrowhead to not only help promote international soccer in Kansas City, but also offer soccer fans the opportunity to see one of the world’s premier clubs up close. For us, this represents another landmark moment in our partnership.”
“We are proud to once again have a team of FC Bayern’s caliber headlining the International Champions Cup,” said Relevent Sports Group Executive Chairman Charlie Stillitano. “FC Bayern always embraces the opportunity to interact with American fans and I look forward to seeing how the loyal sports fans in Kansas City rally behind them this summer.”
Along with the invitation FC Bayern received a special message from reigning NFL MVP and Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon, Patrick!
