Bayern Munich will play benefit match for Hansa Rostock

Alex Grimm

FC Bayern will be playing a friendly this summer against Hansa Rostock to help the club raise money.

Bayern Munich have agreed to a July 14th friendly against cast-strapped Hansa Rostock in order the help the club raise money. This match will be one of Pep Guardiola's first in charge of Bayern when he takes control this summer.

Hansa are pushing a movement called "Ja zum FCH" ("Yes to FCH") in order raise funds to keep the club afloat. They've drawn support from all corners of the local community, and now FC Bayern are aiding the cause.

The Rekordmeisters are waiving their normal fee to play one of these preseason friendlies and will be leaving all of the revenue from the match for Hansa. Special scarves, t-shirts, and other memorabilia will be made for this match and sold in the lead up to it.

The Hanseatic club has fallen on hard times since being relegated from the Bundesliga at the end of the 2007-08 season. They're currently in the 3.Liga and are only seven points out of the relegation zone with eight matches remaining.
