The main customs office in Munich has apparently started investigations against some board members of FC Bayern Munich. This is reported by the WDR magazine “Sport inside”. The background is alleged violations of the minimum wage law at the youth performance center of the German record champions. The club calls this “Bayern Campus”.

Affected are among others Oliver Kahn (CEO), Hasan Salihamidzic (Sports Director) and the less well-known Jan-Christian Dreesen (Vice CEO) and Andreas Jung (Marketing Director).

In addition to the current, former board members should also be in the sights of the investigators, including ex-boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The board is said to have known of the offense

“Sport inside” is based on a letter from the main customs office that is supposed to be available to the magazine. According to the magazine, it is about “the suspicion of withholding and misappropriating wages – violations of the minimum wage law at the youth training center, the FC Bayern Campus.”

Allegedly, the board of directors should have known about the dumping wages. The head of the center has not yet been interviewed, but this is due to formal rules. A spokesman for the main customs office said “Sport inside”, in such cases one always speaks first with the board of directors of a company.

The public prosecutor’s office did not want to comment on the procedure and referred to the ongoing customs investigation. In August there had already been a visit from officials at FC Augsburg because of similar allegations. Here youth coaches are said to have been paid too little.
