You soon find yourself running out of superlatives to describe FC Bayern Munich: the record champions in German football are certain to be national champion candidates every year, a state of affairs that provides the club with not only its many fans but also at least as many enviers.
As much as one may feel drawn to one or the other side, however, at the latest after a visit to the Allianz Arena, the unique football palace of FC Bayern, one has to admit that it is an outstanding experience to watch the Munich eleven playing.
Internationally, too, the club, with its long tradition, enjoys enormous respect. Its history of success reaches back so far that all the international trophies are already standing in FC Bayern Munich's cup cabinets (with the exception of the European super cups, which are of less importance).
After more than 33 successful years in the Munich Olympic Stadium, for the 2005 season the club moved its playing grounds to the newly built Allianz Arena and since then has received up to 69,000 spectators at every match. Inseparably bound up with FC Bayern is also the name Franz Beckenbauer, whose legendary career began in 1964 with the then second-class Munich players. After successful years as player and trainer (1994, 1996), in the meantime since 1994 he has headed FC Bayern Munich in his capacity as club president and chairman of the board.
