The FC Bayern Munich Frauen have a busy and exciting preseason planned. Not only will the Frauen participate in the Women‘s Cup 2018 in Switzerland from August 17th to 19th, but the squad will also play in the Toulouse International Ladies Cup (TILC), which is billed as ”the first professional international women’s football tournament ever to be held in Europe.”
The Toulouse International Ladies Cup (TILC) is the first professional international women’s football tournament ever to be held in Europe. For its second edition, the TILC will take place on Friday August 10th and Sunday August 12th 2018 in Toulouse, France. Just one year from the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup which will be held in France, the TILC will feature 4 world class teams from 3 European countries.
The event will be held at Stade Ernest Wallon in Toulouse. The competition should be an excellent primer for the Frauen as they will look to capture both Bundesliga and Champions League titles next season. In the TILC, Bayern will face off with Montpellier Herault, Arsenal, and Paris Saint-Germain. Bianca Rech, who is part of the FC Bayern Frauen team management, had great things to say about the invitation to play in the TILC.
During the preparation for the season it is a great advantage to be able to compete with attractive and high-quality teams. In Toulouse, we will have an excellent opportunity to show ourselves at European top level during the preseason preparation. Taking part in the tournament offers an excellent platform to present FC Bayern München on an international basis outside the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
If you are looking to check out the FC Bayern Frauen at the International Ladies Cup, the event is running a “set you own price” promo for tickets.
