Bayern Munich to hit the United States again this summer

New, comments

The Bavarians had such a good time in Philadelphia and Miami last summer that they booked a return date to the United States.

Bayern Munich will be heading back to the United States this summer as part of the Audi Summer Tour. Given the hashtag on the tweet below from @FCBayernUS, it could probably be assumed that Bayern would also be a part of the International Champions Cup competition during its visit to the U.S. as well. Per a release from FCBayern.com:

We’re coming to America! In July, FC Bayern will travel to the USA for the fourth time as part of the Audi Summer Tour as they prepare for the 2019/20 season. There the record German champions will take on top-class opposition as part of the International Champions Cup. Who will FCB face and where? That, and further information on the 2019 US tour, will be released on fcbayern.com on March 27th.

Bayern’s last visit to the United States came in July 2018 with stops in Philadelphia and Miami. Back in 2016, the Reds were hosted in Chicago, Charlotte (North Carolina) and New York, while 2014 saw the five-time European champions strut their stuff in the Big Apple and Portland (Oregon). There has also been an FC Bayern office in New York since summer 2014.

Given that Bayern has already hit Chicago, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Miami, New York, and Portland, it will be interesting to see where the Rekordmeister will visit next. I would expect Dallas, Minneapolis, or a West Coast venture to Los Angeles or Seattle to be among the front runners to host the Bavarians.
