Bayern II and 1860 get a new roommate at the Grünwalder Stadion
The Grünwalder Stadion is going to be crowded next season thanks to 3.Liga teams. After months of discussion between the city of Munich and the clubs, the solution has been found. Not only will the Grünwalder play host to Bayern Munich II and 1860 Munich’s first team next season, but they will be joined next season by Regionalliga Bayern leaders Türkgücü Munich.
However, Türkgücü would split their time between Grünwalder and the Olympiastadion in Munich, as Grünwalder is not able to support three teams playing a full schedule at the stadium. Per DFB rules, only 50 games max can be played in a stadium. The DFB must still sign off on the decision.
On Monday, the Bavarian Football Association will be making a decision on the ending the 2019-20 Regionalliga Bayern season. If, as expected, the season is ended, Türkgücü will be named champions.
