FC Bayern Munich was established in 1900 by Franz John together with eleven football players. They are considered as the most accomplished team in Germany. They have won the national championship in 1932 and have a winning streak over the years, bagging 22 national titles, 15 in the DFB-Pokal, 6 in the DFB-Ligapokal, 5 in the DFL-Supercup, 6 in the European Cups, and twice in the Intercontinental Cup.

This team has had an amazing history since the early 1900s. However, due to the Nazism in the country, their Jewish-descent president, Kurt Landauer, and Coach Richard Kohn left the team in order to avoid any complications.

This had a huge effect in the team’s failure to succeed at the time. To make matters worse, the Bayern had a hard time searching for a new coach. They have hired and fired more than 10 coaches in the years that followed. They also suffered financially and was saved by Roland Endler.

In order to strengthen the football teams in Germany, the Bundesliga was created. Different cities were required to have one team as a representative, which posed a problem for the Bayern Munich as there was a competition with another team in their city, the TSV 1860 Munich. The latter had won the championship and the Bayern was not chosen.

However, Franz Beckenbauer, Sepp Maier and Gerd Muller will make history for this team in the next 10 years. Recently, the Bayern is noted for its net worth of $1,235 million and its operating income is $90 million. Adidas is their sponsor until 2019.

Their success slowly dwindled from 1979-1998 due to financial and personnel constraints. Nonetheless, this team still had luck from 1998 to present time when they had a new coach named Ottmar Hitzfield and followed by Jurgen Klinnsmann in 2008. The 2012-2013 season is also a huge accomplishment for them as they won eight first matches in Bundesliga.

I learned all about life with a ball at my feet. Soccer allows me to push the limitation of creativity and express myself without saying a word. Soccer is my addiction. I train. I play, and I repeat every single day.
