However, before FC Bayern can go to the other end of the world, the first part of the preparations will be completed at Tegernsee, not far from Munich. From July 15th to 20th, the ball will roll on the training grounds.

The “Asia Tour” follows not long after and is part of the “Audi Summer Tour”, which will now take place for the eighth time in summer 2023. To this end, FCB will set out on a trip to the Japanese metropolis of Tokyo on July 24th. The series champion will stay in the capital of the island state until August 3rd.

During this period, two “Audi Football Summits”, i.e. preparatory games, are planned in the national stadium. However, there is only information about the opponent for one match: On July 29, FC Bayern meets the Japanese first division team Kawasaki Frontale. The opponents for the opening match on July 26 in Tokyo and the third friendly, which will take place at a different location, are not yet known.

For FCB it is the first time since 2008 that the professional team is traveling to Japan. In Asia, Bayern Munich was recently a guest in China and Singapore.

“FC Bayern is always aware of its roots in Bavaria and Munich, and it is part of the club’s tradition that we always prepare for the new season at Tegernsee. At the same time, we want to offer our fans around the world the opportunity to to see our players live.
