Organiser

The Bavaria Cup is organised by TSV Eintracht Karlsfeld. The club was established in 1950 and is one if the largest omni-sports clubs in Bavaria. The football division has 28 teams. 

Sport facillity

The Bavaria Cup takes place at the well-maintained multifunctional sports park of TSV Eintracht Karlsfeld. The park is located in a recreational area and has five pitches with a beautiful stadium at the main pitch, a spacious clubhouse, a "Gaststätte" with terrace and a sports hall. 

Karlsfeld

Surrounded by green fields, it seems like the city of Munich is far away. In friendly Karlsfeld (19,000 inhabitants), people take the time for a chat on the street. Nonetheless, the centre of Munich is just ten kilometres away. You can be in the old town in 20 minutes by car. The same goes for the Allianz Arena.  

Munich

Folklore and modernity go hand in hand in Munich. Munich is the city of the historic Marienplatz and its beautifully decorated buildings. It is the city of the Oktoberfest with happy people in ‘lederhosen’ and ‘dirndl’ dresses. Car enthusiasts will no doubt think of BMW, but the main attraction is, of course, FC Bayern Munich and the Allianz Arena! The atmospheric centre is full of old Bavarian architecture, lively shopping streets and numerous terraces that are pleasantly filled during stretches of fine weather. Munich is definitely worth a visit!

Shopping

Munich is perfect for shopping and good food. You’ll find shops, cafés and traditional Bavarian eateries on and around the central Marienplatz square. Would you like to supplement your vitamins after the games? If so, pay a visit to Munich's famous daily market, the Viktualienmarkt, near the Marienplatz. Here you can enjoy a wide range of cheap delicacies, like sausages, sandwiches and many other traditional Bavarian treats. Then go and enjoy it in the Biergarten. You’re welcome to bring your own food, as long as you buy your drinks in the Biergarten. So, it’s also a fine, budget-proof solution!

Allianz Arena

The Allianz Arena is the FC Bayern Munich stadium. The white exterior is illuminated in a wide spectrum of colours, so you can spot the stadium from a great distance. Always wanted to see the inside? Well, it is possible! Among many other things, you’ll also be able to enjoy a guided tour of the training complex during your visit. You can also visit the FC Bayern Experience. Here, you’ll learn everything about the club’s history and, after that, you can buy some great FC Bayern Munich souvenirs. It’s essential to make your booking well in advance, because the tours are very popular! Look here for more detailed information and to register.
