“Maybe we have to think about how we can partner with U.S. teams from the MLS, to support them and show them how business is run in Germany and at Bayern.” This was the statement released by Bayern Munich’s chairman Karl-HerinzRummenigge as he talked about partnering with a MLS club.
Bayern Munich is looking around to extend their presence around the world and around different leagues. It seems like the MLS is where the German outfit are setting their sights now, at least according to their chairman who revealed details concerning the current internationalization strategy of the club.
New York City is one of the locations where Bayern Munich has already opened their office and they have played various friendly matches in United States, it’s clear that the German outfit are working to have a vicinity with other nations.
Manchester City is doing a similar thing as they have partnered with a MLS club but the head chiefs of Bayern Munich want to have a different mechanic as they are interested in exchanging business and football knowledge that can also lead to them having transactions between players and coaches in the future.
If this partnership is indeed done, it can help attract even more attention to the MLS which is what the American League is in need of as they are growing at a fast pace and gaining even more attention can lead to more people becoming supporters or watchers of the games that take place in that league.
Besides having opened an office in New York City, Bayern Munich has also opened an office in Shanghai and could be interested in doing the same thing in China with a potential partnering that can also lead to them having transactions between players and coaches which other clubs might not have the chance to do.
