FC Bayern Munich, preparation: start, dates, friendlies, training camp



FC Bayern Munich snatched the championship away from BVB at the last second.

Champion FC Bayern Munich announced a plan for the summer preparations before the end of the season. Start, dates, friendlies, training camp – at SPOX there is information about the timetable during the summer break.

On the last match day of the Bundesliga a week and a half ago, FC Bayern Munich averted the disaster once again and became champions for the eleventh time in a row with Jamal Musiala’s 2-1 winner against 1. FC Köln in the 89th minute. Borussia Dortmund, still top of the table before the final day of the game, only played 2-2 against 1. FSV Mainz 05 in the parallel game.

Apart from the triumph in the Bundesliga, the 2022/23 season cannot really be considered a success from the point of view of the Munich team. In the Champions League it was over in the quarter-finals against Manchester City. In the DFB Cup, too, they had to bow out in the quarter-finals against SC Freiburg.

The season is over, the focus is on the new season. Coach Thomas Tuchel denies his first preparation as Bayern coach.

FC Bayern Munich, preparation: kick-off, dates, friendlies, training camp – timetable during the summer break

Bayern let the ball rest for a while before training resumes on July 15. On this day, a training camp begins at Tegernsee, which is supposed to last until July 20th. Then the eighth “Audi Summer Tour” continues, for which FC Bayern – as the name suggests – travels to Asia. The record champions will stay there from July 24th to August 3rd and will play three friendlies. The three “Audi Football Summits” will take place in the Japanese capital of Tokyo and in Singapore.

Two of the three encounters will take place in Tokyo, the duels on July 26th and 29th. While they play against Manchester City on July 26, FCB will play against the Japanese first division team and four-time champions Kawasaki Frontale on July 29. On August 2nd the next top game will continue. With FC Liverpool, a top team from the Premier League is again waiting for Munich.

It is the first time since 2008 that Bayern’s professional team is visiting Japan again. In 2017 they were on the road to China and Singapore for preparation.
