For the football fans who do not know each other well with the women s football, it should not be surprising that Germany is the most successful country in the Champions League of women so far. Much more surprising is probably the fact that FC Bayern Munich, with men by far the club with most titles, has never triumphed in the premier class of women.
Frankfurt, Duisburg, Potsdam and Wolfsburg have already won the Champions League in the past — and three of them even before the FC Bayern completed only a duel in the premier class. Because the FCB celebrated his CL debut until 2009.
Twelve years later, it becomes clear what imposing development of the association has been demonstrated: Meanwhile, Bavaria women celebrated three championships over the past six years and were twice in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Today it goes on the very large stage against the seven-fold CL winner Lyon — and the FCB is certainly not opportuneless.
If you look at what happened in the last ten years, that s unbelievable, says Bavaria s sports director Bianca Reach Spot and Goal. Until 2010, she herself carried the FCB jersey and then returned to the Munich in 2016 to take a position in management. Although FC Bayern had just brought two championship titles in a row and thus temporarily replaced the VFL Wolfsburg as a number one in Germany, but for my feeling missing something, says Reach.
New: FCB wants to become serial master
I did not discover a plan for the future. That s why I put myself with the ladder of the women s football and said If we want to get titles in the future, we must hold something in writing, says Reach. Said, done: I have developed a strategy paper in which is running, where we work as FC Bayern, says the 40-year-old.
Our vision was to become the number one in Germany — but not only for a year, says Reach. Wolfsburg then brought the title between 2017 and 2020 four times in a row, but the goal of Bayern is, and it remains to become a serial winner in the league.
So that succeeds, wise transfers are necessary. In this area, Reach in the recent past has seen further development at her club: Last year, it was a big step for us when we brought Hanna Glass and Vivian Assam. Players from the outside, from large foreign clubs, from large football Nations, says the sports director. Otherwise it was always the other way around: Melanie Leopold and Vivienne Mi edema have left us for example in the direction of England, she adds.
From England and Spain also come the great Bavaria competitors when it comes to the royal class. There are currently many top clubs who want to win the Champions League and who can spend a lot of money, explains New. The problem is that there is not the large number of top players yet, she adds. If you want to have someone for a position, there is not five to ten candidates like men, but only a player, two, the most threaten three. Then five clubs want to have a player, she reports on the problems on the transfer market. The result: Then it s clear what happens: the players are really expensive, says Ag.
FC Bayern as a second family
Accordingly, FC Bayern was that it worked in summer with a coup: with Saki Kumeyaay came a real top star from Lyon to Munich. She s a great player, if she had been important to the money, she would have gone to another club. But she wanted to go to us, because of our project and our concept, says New. The brand FC Bayern is not enough Players to convince. The Bundesliga is not so strong in public as the English league, which makes much more money with the TV right, calls you the difficulties that the Bavarians have in international comparison.
The FCB, according to view, can view News with its special atmosphere: It is created by the players and people who work here for the club. They ensure that you are simply comfortable every day. The foreign players often tell me: it feels like a second family here, says Reach.

As a real unity, FC Bayern now wants to get to reach the great goal. When we wrote the strategy paper, it was our vision to win the Champions League. Since the 2019/20 season we develop well, and it was and is our goal to get the Champions League title in the medium term, confirmed Reach. Thus, that succeeds, however, it may not be over with the development of Bavaria: We still have to take steps in the right direction, says New. The next one could follow Lyon already tonight.
