Club info

FC Bayern Munich was on the highway to greatness last season, but it came crashing to a halt sooner than expected. Only one team, Zenit St. Petersburg, beat Bayern in the first few months of the season. It’s 6-2 regular season record saw it finish second in Group C behind Zenit. Come the Top 16, Bayern was firing on all cylinders and swept Khimki Moscow Region, ratipharm Ulm and Lietkabelis Panevezys to earn home-court advantage in the playoffs. After Maik Zirbes led six Bayern scorers in double figures with 15 points in a Game 1 win, Unicaja won the next two games to knock Bayern out. Coach Sasa Djordjevic’s men rebounded – it was the EuroCup’s top rebounding team – in the German League to place third at the end of the regular season, however there too it ended on a down note by falling 3-0 to Brose Bamberg in the semifinals.

History

Simply put, FC Bayern Munich is one of the best-known sports club in the world. The basketball team’s roots go back to 1946 and the club was powerful in those early years with national championships in 1954 and 1955 and a German Cup in 1968. The team even made its European debut in the early rounds of the 1968-69 Cup Winners’ Cup, but slipped over the next few years and was relegated to the German second division in 1974. After that, Bayern all but disappeared and spent just three seasons in the top German League over the next three-and-a-half decades. In 2008, following the success of the club’s junior team, Bayern purchased the license of Dusseldorf Magics to return to the German second division. With national team stalwarts Steffen Hamann and Demond Greene signing up and head coach Dirk Bauermann leading the charge, Bayern dominated the second division and clinched its return to the German elite in 2011. Bayern received a wild card to play the 2011-12 EuroCup and reached the German League playoffs that season, too. Coach Svetislav Pesic stepped in before the start of the 2012-13 season as the guard tandem of Tyrese Rice and Yotam Halperin helped Bayern finish the regular season in fourth place and reach the German League semifinals. Everything clicked in the 2013-14 season, as Bayern made the most out of its EuroLeague debut by reaching the Top 16. Bayern was first at the end of the German League regular season and took out MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg, EWE Baskets Oldenburg and ALBA Berlin to win its first domestic crown since 1955. Coach Pesic and German League MVP Malcolm Delaney were the club's most visible faces all season. Bayern was eliminated at the end of the EuroLeague regular season in the next two years, but and moved up to finish first in its EuroCup Last 32 groups, before losing against Valencia Basket in the eighthfinals in 2015 and falling against Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul in 2016. Bayern returned to the German League finals in 2015, but Brose Baskets Bamberg stopped them and did the same in the 2016 semifinals. The club also reached the German Cup final last season, where it lost to ALBA. Last season Bayern won Game 1 of its EuroCup Quarterfinals against eventual champ Unicaja Malaga, but lost the next two and was eliminated. And back home, despite ranking third in the regular season, Bayern’s German League run ended in the semis. Bayern hopes to make the most of its valuable experience to be competitive on all fronts this season.
