FC Bayern and the other three German clubs in the Champions League, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, and Bayer Leverkusen, are making $22 (€20) million available to the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2. The decision was also announced by the Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL) today. The DFL Management Board will decide how this money is distributed.
FC Bayern CEO Karl Heinz Rummenigge said, “Together with the three other Champions League participants, we want to send a signal of solidarity to all clubs in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 with this initiative. In these difficult times, it’s important that the stronger shoulders support the weaker shoulders. With this, we also want to show that football is standing together right now.”
