Mercedes-Benz JuniorCup January 5 & 6, 2018

FC Bayern München

Welcome back. After a 24-year break, the FC Bayern Munich returns to the Glaspalast in Sindelfingen. At that time the trainer was Gerd Müller, now the FC Bayern arrives with its new youth program.

Bayern Munich goes all out with its young talents and wants to know how far they will get within the Mercedes-Benz Junior Cup. With the inauguration of the FC Bayern Campus and its eight playing fields and the academy, the efforts of the German champions  has significantly increased when it comes to searching and promoting talents. The Bayern Campus is one of the most modern that is currently available in youth soccer.

The program “software” agrees too: Manuel Wintzheimer, a member of the Glaspalast, sat also on the bench last fall with professionals of the Champions League during the game of Celtic Glasgow. The Coach, Sebastian Hoeneß, has a well-known name too. He is the son of VfB legend Dieter Hoeneß.
