President Herbert Hainer is to go into a second term with the German record champions Bayern Munich. At its meeting on Tuesday evening, the club’s administrative advisory board unanimously decided to nominate the 68-year-old for re-election at the general meeting on October 15 in the Audi Dome.
“I would like to thank our Administrative Advisory Board, headed by Dr. Edmund Stoiber, for the trust they have placed in them and for the nomination, which I am happy to accept. I would consider myself very lucky to serve the association as President for another three years,” said Hainer, who is also Chairman of the Supervisory Board . It is “an honor to be a part of this club with its unique fan base”.
The former adidas boss has led the club “excellently” so far, said Stoiber: “He combines everything that FC Bayern needs: Herbert Hainer has a red heart, loves football passionately and has a unique wealth of experience as a decades-long decision-maker in economics Area.” The fact that the record champions “continue to set standards across Europe even in Corona times is an absolute credit to the current management team”.
Therefore, in addition to Hainer, his deputies Dieter Mayer (1st Vice President) and Walter Mennekes (2nd Vice President) were again nominated as candidates for their offices.
