FC Bayern wants to be at the top of Europe “in five to ten years”

President Herbert Hainer of Bayern Munich has confirmed the goal of joining the phalanx of continental top teams with the basketball team in the near future.

“Very clear: in the next five to ten years we want to be established at the top of Europe. I am absolutely convinced that FC Bayern has that in the cross,” said Hainer to the “Münchner Merkur / tz”.

The new hall will play a key role in this. “With the SAP Garden we can ignite the next level, because with the new arena we will also reach an even younger target group. We will then have one of the most modern arenas in basketball worldwide,” said Hainer (66).

Basketball players should copy success from footballers

The basketball players could “learn” on their way up from the soccer team, said Hainer: “It has always distinguished FC Bayern that they wanted to win every title and were never full. Joshua Kimmich is currently epitomizing this obsession in soccer the maximum. In basketball we also have such a character in Vladimir Lucic. “

Bayern are striving for “a good mix of top stars and people from their own offspring” for their team, as Hainer said: “We are not able to afford 15 stars. Other clubs have these budgets.” Due to the corona pandemic, FCB has already lost three million euros in viewer income.
