“I don’t think we decided on three markets out of nothing,” board member Andreas Jung said in Green Bay on Saturday when asked which markets were interesting for the German record champions. “Shanghai or the United States will have to be checked again. You also have in mind the 2026 World Cup in Canada, Mexico and the United States.” “I think we have to focus on this hype anyway to carry it with us,” Jung said.
CEO Oliver Kahn said a fifth US tour was “something special”, especially after years of pandemic hiatus. “That’s why we were all so happy to be back in America.” Four years before the World Cup, it’s exciting to see how soccer is growing in America. “For young people, soccer is becoming the No. 1 sport.”
When it comes to Jersey, Jung said that new signing Sadio Mane is in high demand at the moment. When asked about the over-promotion of the Premier League’s stars, Bayern’s board hinted that the Bundesliga’s reach needs to be improved. The Premier League has a huge gap. He said that we can solve this only together.
