Bayern Munich open up club to refugees; donate $1.1 million for classes and hot meals

German side to donate €1 million and provide hot meals to those in need


GERMAN club Bayern Munich pledged yesterday to donate €1 million to refugee projects and provide German classes and hot meals to victims of the ongoing crisis.

Germany is currently experiencing its largest influx of refugees from war-torn countries and the German champions have promised to help those in need with various projects over the next few weeks.

The club will host football training camps via their youth system while supplying equipment, food and German lessons.

Last weekend, various supporters across Germany held up signs in solidarity saying: “Refugees welcome, ” while Borussia Dortmund handed out 200 tickets to refugees for a Europa League home match.

The gesture was also replicated by second division sides Fortuna Dusseldorf & Dynamo Dresden, who gave away 450 tickets each.
