As a result, the decision was made to launch such a campaign that should put FC Bayern in a better position overall for the future. “We thought about what we urgently need in the next few years. For example: upper salary limits in European football and a better training infrastructure for the professionals. Then we thought about how we would implement that? For example through joint initiatives with the DFL with the upper salary limits and by converting our buildings according to the specifications of all specialists,” Kahn continues.

They live these values, this ‘Mia san Mia’. It was never the goal to tell the fans what they mean by ‘mia san mia’ because the fans know that very well and maybe best of all.”
