+++ “Unprecedented participatory process” +++
During the Assembly, a change to the statute will be decided, which has already been worked on in advance with the involvement of the members.

The second paragraph of the statute “Purpose and tasks” should be expanded with the point “Values”. This serves to decisively counter “unconstitutional, xenophobic and anti-democratic efforts” and could potentially provide explosive material due to the issue of Bayern defender Noussair Mazraoui’s posts and Bayern’s lack of sanctions.

+++ Tuchel makes you laugh: “So I’m excited” +++
In addition to president Herbert Hainer, who will sit on the podium, coach Thomas Tuchel will also be present, as he confirmed on Friday in a press conference ahead of the home match against Heidenheim.
“I think the players won’t be there because they will be with the national teams. But I will be there”, explained Tuchel, underlining that he wants to guarantee himself the best possible starting position with a victory against the promoted team. “But tomorrow we have an important appointment even before the Assembly. We want to do good preparatory work and guarantee a good general atmosphere”.
Asked about the sometimes turbulent and heated events of recent years, the Bayern coach made the journalists present laugh: “No, I didn’t notice (the last two annual general meetings, ed.). So I’m excited.”
