Bayern Munich to Open New York Office on April 1st

Alexander Hassenstein

No April Fools! the Rekordmeister are expanding its brand to the United States, setting up a 3-man team in New York City

Just in case the United States did not know of Bayern Munich before, it will know of Bayern Munich now.

The club announced Tuesday that it will open a Manhattan office on April 1st, 2014. A three man staff, with dual citizen and Colorado-born Rudolf Vidal at the helm, will be "managing FC Bayern’s internationalisation drive in North America, growing the FC Bayern brand, developing networks and acquiring new co-operation partners."

I’m delighted to be taking on this substantial and exciting assignment on behalf of FC Bayern. Together with my co-workers we will tackle the tasks assigned to us rapidly and with great determination. We want to help in consolidating and continuing to develop the club’s international reputation.

– Rudolf Vidal

The rumor now becomes a reality, the club releasing the office statement just two weeks after announcing a €110 million with Allianz.

According to Forbes, FC Bayern is valued at €1.032 billion, behind only Real Madrid, Manchester United, Barcelona, and Arsenal. The €432.8 turnover in 2013 was a club record, and the club has over 220,000 members.

Yet, there is still room to blow the roof off of European football now with inroads in America.
