A look at Bayern Munich’s pre-season fixtures
After winning a record fifth consecutive Bundesliga title, the Bayern Munich squad will kick start their pre-season preparations from July 1 onwards.
However, the players on international duty will be given an extended break. Thomas Müller, Jérôme Boateng and Mats Hummels were given the rare privilege of an extended break as they were all spared of Germany’s Confederations Cup trip to Russia.
Bayern are scheduled to play a total of 12 matches across three countries, starting with two friendlies against Bavarian neighbours followed by the Telekom Cup. They are also part of the International Champions Cup which kicks off on July 19 when AS Roma take on Paris Saint-Germain.
All the fixtures…
July 6 – Bayern play Bavarian neighbour BCF Wolfratshausen

July 15 – Bayern Munich vs. TSG Hoffenheim/ Borussia Mönchengladbach/Werder Bremen (Telekom Cup)
