The FC Bayern Munich team is one of the best-known in German professional football.

In that instance, what better football club to highlight? Take a look at this team profile, looking at the FC Bayern Munich schedule, stadium, players, team and much more.
FC Bayern Munich Logo and History
FC Bayern Munich was founded in 1900 by eleven football players. These football enthusiasts split away from Münchner TurnVerein 1879 as a way of escaping the club’s gymnasts, who had little love for football.
After World War II, Bayern was entered into the Oberliga Süd. This was one of the five upper league conferences, which were established in West Germany. From 1947 through to the creation of the Bundesliga in 1963, Bayern Munich was quite a middling side. Munich had its biggest success in the middle of the 1970s and has continued on the same path ever since.
Throughout the years, its club logo and badge has gone through quite the transformation, too. Its original logo was designed in 1923, and it remained with Munich for over 30 years. This consisted of four stylised letters “FCBM” in blue, and it worked well against the FC Bayern Munich kit colours. Between 1954 and 1961, the badge was changed again, introducing a minimalist red and white logo. With the new era of the team in the 60s, a new logo came about again, bringing more colours to the image.
It went through various other changes throughout the years, with the most alteration coming in 2017. This is a repeat of the version from 2002, but with bolder colours in red, white and blue. On the FC Bayern Munich shirt, five stars can also be seen above the logo. These represent the team’s thirty+ championship wins, as regulated by the DFL’s Guideline for Matchwear and Equipment. No other club is adorned with as many stars on the chest as Munich.

The FC Bayern Munich Kit
Originally, the FC Bayern Munich kit consisted of white shirts and black shorts, despite the team’s colours being white and blue. A decree was put out that footballers would have to play in red shorts in 1905. For most of the early years of the club, Bayern primarily wore white and maroon home kits.
Since 1974, the FC Bayern Munich kit has been manufactured and supplied by Adidas. The style of the kit changes a little between seasons. However, the FC Bayern Munich away kit and home kit maintain the same colours. Blue and red are usually utilised for the home kit, while the away kit has often primarily been black with gold-metallic additions to it. In the FC Bayern Munich shop, anyone can purchase the season’s kit for themselves.

FC Bayern Munich Rivalries
Bayern has had rivalries with various other clubs over the years, although some have been bigger than others. Some of the biggest rivalries are with other teams in the Bundesliga across Germany.
FC Bayern Munich vs Leipzig
Perhaps the most recent rivalry for Bayern has come in the form of RB Leipzig. Recent FC Bayern Munich news has seen the most successful German team watch as Leipzig has risen from the fifth tier into the higher levels.
The two teams have gone into six of their 12 Bundesliga meetings as the top two in the league, beginning back in December of 2016. Their initial match-up saw Leipzig floundering against the league leaders. But Die Roten Bullen made a breakthrough in March 2018, recording their first victory over the Munich club. Here is how all their rivalry matches have unfolded:
|Competition||Bayern Munich Wins||Draws||Leipzig Wins|
Borussia Mönchengladbach vs FC Bayern Munich
As a defining rivalry of the 1970s, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayern shared the Meisterschale trophy for nine consecutive seasons. Both teams entered into the Bundesliga in 1965, gaining promotion from their respective regional leagues. While Bayern were first to make an impression, it didn’t take long for Gladbach to strike back.
The first Gladbach title came in the 1969-70 season, and both teams spurred the other on to bigger and better things. The rivalry continued on throughout the decades, coming to light once again in 2021, taking on the nickname of Der Klassiker. Here is a look at the outcome of their head-to-head matches.
|Competition||Bayern Munich Wins||Draws||Borussia Mönchengladbach Wins|
FC Bayern Munich vs PSG
The European rivalry between Munich and Paris Saint-German (PSG) is legendary in itself. Obviously, the two teams do not compete within the Bundesliga, as one of them is French. But they have met several times in the Champions League competition. Perhaps the most notable of those meetings was the final, which played out in August 2020 and saw Munich come away with the victory.
Prior to that, they had only ever faced one another in the group stage of the tournament. And after the final of 2020, they went on to additional matches in the quarter finals. Take a look at the results below.
|Competition||Bayern Munich Wins||Draws||PSG Wins|
FC Bayern Munich vs Liverpool
There is a storied history when it comes to the rivalry between England’s Liverpool FC and Bayern. Liverpool has faced off against Bayern on four separate occasions in European competition. But the rivalry goes back right into the 1970s.
Events in the Champions League, Fairs Cup and European Cup have all proven to be thoroughly exciting games. Oddly enough, the biggest number of their meetings have ended in draws, and Munich only possesses one win against Liverpool.
|Competition||Bayern Munich Wins||Draws||Liverpool Wins|
|UEFA Super Cup||0||0||1|
|Cup Winners’ Cup||1||1||0|
