FCB’s last training camp in summer



FC Bayern was at a training camp in the USA last summer.

FC Bayern Munich is going on a trip to Asia this summer and is organizing the “Audi Summer Tour” there. SPOX looks at the FCB summer training camps of recent years.

The Bundesliga season 2022/23 is over, FC Bayern Munich only secured their eleventh championship in a row on the last matchday with a last-minute goal from Jamal Musiala. However, club operations will now be paused for a while before FC Bayern start summer preparations for the coming season on July 15 at Tegernsee.

The Bavarians will stay there until July 20th, after which they will continue with another training camp. This takes place under the name “Audi Summer Tour” in Japan and Singapore. Three friendly matches are scheduled in Asia: on July 26 against Manchester City (in Tokyo), on July 29 against Kawasaki Frontale (in Tokyo) and on August 2 against Liverpool FC (in Singapore).

So this is FCB’s plan for this summer, but how has it been in previous years? SPOX provides information about the last training camp in Munich.

FC Bayern Munich, Audi Summer Tour: FCB’s last summer training camp

The concept of the “Audi Football Summits”, as the test matches are called on the “Audi Summer Tour”, is nothing new. It’s the eighth time the tour has taken place, and it’s the first time since 2017 that the tour has been to Asia. In recent years, however, the USA has often hosted. So also in the summer of 2019, but also in 2022.

Despite the frequent trips abroad, FC Bayern always spends at least part of the preparation on German soil. It has been a tradition for years that a summer training camp is held in the Bavarian municipality of Rottach-Egern am Tegernsee. But that has not always been the case in recent years.

In 2020, for example, the coronavirus pandemic meant that no training camp could be held. Instead, the players in the Portuguese Algarve were only preparing for the Champions League final tournament in Lisbon.

The following year, 2021, the Munich team did not organize a training camp either. However, the reason for this cannot be traced back to Corona, rather Julian Nagelsmann, former coach, did not want to burden the EM returnees with any further travel strains.
