The ‘Ja zum FCH’ (‘Yes to FCH’) initiative, aimed at keeping Hansa Rostock afloat, has drawn support from fans, sponsors, companies and celebrities alike. Now FC Bayern have decided to aid the traditional club in their precarious situation by agreeing to take part in a ‘pro-bono’ pre-season friendly in the Hanseatic city.
Bayern with a Pep in their step
The encounter (kick-off 15:30 CET) will not only feature all of the Bavarians’ regular stars, but also new head coach Guardiola, with Bayern set to travel north for a pre-season training camp on the Baltic coast.
Michael Dahlman, CEO of F.C. Hansa Rostock, was delighted to announce Bayern Munich involvement in the fixture. “The willingness of this world-renowned club to support us is nothing short of phenomenal. Despite their size and stature, FC Bayern Munich have managed to remain a family-oriented club with a real heart and soul.”
