FC Bayern Munich is one of the biggest clubs in world football and has a proven track record of developing world-class players. In the 2014 World Cup Final, five of the starting 11 players were products of the FC Bayern Academy-, Lahm, Schweinsteiger, Muller, Kroos and Hummels. As part of FC Bayern’s commitment to the US market, the FC Bayern ID program was established in 2015. The Fall 2017 Bayern ID Program will target 2009-2006 born male and female elite players. The goal will be to identify players with the potential to become FC Bayern Youth Academy and future pro players. FC Bayern will host ID programs at FC Bayern Affiliate Club locations in 2016 to include Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, South Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Florida. FC Bayern ID teams also compete in select tournaments both domestically and internationally outside of the normal club calendar. While FC Bayern ID program will be supported by FC Bayern official American youth partner, Penn Fusion Soccer Academy, the ID program will be club neutral so will be open to players regardless of their current club affiliation.
The Pennsylvania FC Bayern ID Program will select 24-36 elite level boys and girls from the 2009, 2008, 2007, & 2006 birth years.
For the Fall 2017 season we will be accepting player applications. Players will be invited based upon application and will be informed via email about acceptance/non-acceptance.
Who is invited? All Penn Fusion Elite and Predator level players are eligible to apply, in addition to any other Elite/Premier players in the area from other youth soccer clubs.
Application Deadline is Friday August 25th!
