FC Bayern, together with partner Telekom and 1. FC Köln, is donating 100,000 euros for the victims of the flood disaster in Germany. The amount is being split in three by the partners, with the money going to the organization 'Lichtblicke e.V.', which will distribute it among those affected. A check will be presented before the German champions' friendly against Köln in Villingen on Saturday (kick-off 10:00 am ET).
Oliver Kahn, FC Bayern CEO, said: "The damage caused by this flood disaster is devastating. FC Bayern, together with its partner Telekom and its friendly opponents 1. FC Köln, wants to help the people who are suffering such severe hardship through no fault of their own. This donation is just a first step, and FC Bayern is planning further measures of support."
