The FC Bayern Munich footballers achieved a disappointing result at their Bundesliga premiere in the Allianz Arena in front of a record crowd. Coach Alexander Straus' team had to be content with a 0-0 draw in front of 19,000 spectators in the home game against Eintracht Frankfurt.
However, the highest number of visitors in a league game for the Munich team did not inspire the home team. The German champions found it difficult to create clear scoring opportunities against smart defending from Frankfurt.
In addition to the high number of spectators, there were other special features: On the occasion of "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" in October, a pink ribbon was integrated into the logo of the Munich women's jersey sponsor as an international symbol in the fight against breast cancer. The Allianz Arena should also light up in pink after the final whistle. The aim of the actions was to send a “clear signal for breast cancer prevention,” FC Bayern explained before the game.
Club attendance record also in Bremen
The Werder Bremen footballers had previously set a club attendance record. 21,508 spectators came to the Weserstadion for the 3-0 (1-0) win over 1. FC Köln.
The attendance record in the women's Bundesliga is held by the game between 1. FC Köln and Eintracht Frankfurt from last season, which attracted 38,365 fans to the stadium.
