Herbert Hainer is the new president of German Bundesliga record champions FC Bayern München!
An overwhelming majority of the members present at Friday’s Annual General Meeting voted in favour of the 65-year-old to succeed Uli Hoeneß, the president from 2009 to 2014 and again since 2016.
“FC Bayern München is the best club in the world,” Hainer said. “It is a pleasure and a great honour to be standing before you here today.”
The new president paid tribute to his predecessor. “I bow down to Uli for his life’s work. What you’ve achieved for this club is simply extraordinary,” Hainer said.
Ever since the incorporation of FC Bayern München AG in 2002, former adidas CEO Herbert Hainer has been deputy chairman of the record champions’ supervisory board.
