The FC Bayern München football club has inaugurated “FC Bayern World,” a new multi-functional complex located in the area of Munich’s central Marienplatz. The 3,500-square-meter complex extends over seven floors and houses various club-related amenities, including a three-storey FC Bayern flagship store, which covers alone 1,000 square meters, as well as a boutique hotel with 30 rooms and two restaurants, one international and one Bavarian. The building features a sgraffito-style façade, which is based on the historic buildings from 1872, the club explained. Its architecture was designed to harmoniously integrate into the old town. The inauguration ceremony on Dec. 9 was planned on a small scale, with only a few board members and no guests or media representatives, due to Covid-19 restrictions. The ceremony was led by Bayern’s chief executive and football legend Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, together with the club’s president, Herbert Hainer (former CEO of Adidas), and Jörg Wacker, a member of the executive board. With 30 national titles, FC Bayern Munich is the most successful club in German football history. The club won the latest Uefa Champions League trophy on Aug. 23.
