Bayern Munich stars drafted New Yorkers into pickup soccer game

While in New York this summer, Bayern partnered with Audi for some fun.

While Bayern Munich were touring the United States this summer, they joined club partner Audi in bringing some fun to a local New York City soccer park. Thiago Alcantara and Jerome Boateng joined forces to take on Franck Ribery and Arturo Vidal.

The plan? Drive around New York and give out jerseys inviting people to come play in a pickup game.

The guys picked a diverse selection of people, and it looks like everyone had an awesome time. It’s great to see Bayern doing this kind of outreach.
