+++ Fully-electric BMW cars for players and coaching staff +++ Joint social commitment +++ Home matches at BMW Park +++

On 1st July 2023, a mobility partnership was launched between BMW Munich and FC Bayern München Basketball GmbH. The focus of this long-term collaboration was presented on Friday at a joint press conference at the BMW retail outlet in Munich. BMW Munich will provide the players and coaching staff at the five-time German champions with fully-electric vehicles. This will allow the basketballers to travel locally emission-free around the Munich area. Both partners will also team up away from the court, taking on social responsibility and supporting charity projects, particularly in the Munich metropolitan region.

Bernd Döpke, Head of BMW Munich, presented the keys to two BMW iX cars – one to Marko Pešić, general manager of FC Bayern München Basketball GmbH, who was representing the staff, and one to guard Andreas Obst on behalf of the team.

“FC Bayern has done very much for the sport of basketball in Munich. Our shared home city has become a top location for this sport, both nationally and internationally, and is attracting more and more fans,” said Döpke. “Both partners share the drive for success and dynamics, even beyond their roots in Munich, as well as the joy of sport, which is experienced in a particularly inclusive and family-friendly atmosphere at FC Bayern München Basketball.”

As of next season, fans at the home matches of FC Bayern München Basketball will be able to experience that atmosphere at BMW Park. To seal the renaming, Pešić symbolically presented Döpke with the keys to Rudi-Sedlmayer Hall, which was built in 1972.

“Everyone at FC Bayern München Basketball is very much looking forward to the exciting mobility partnership with BMW, and to the cars for our team. We are very grateful for the great support,” said FCBB general manager Marko Pešić. “The fact that we are located so close to BMW is obviously ideal for our collaboration, as is the fact that two renowned brands will now be following shared goals on an equal footing. BMW Park will also be an important mainstay for us, enabling us to establish ourselves among the European elite and attract even more fans to our sport. We are particularly pleased to be launching and supporting social projects together, both in and for Munich.”

FC Bayern München Basketball will play its first matches at BMW Park on 16th and 17th September 2023, as part of a warm-up tournament ahead of the new season. The first home match in the BBL is against Mitteldeutscher Basketball Club on Friday 29th September 2023. The joint social commitment will also start with the new season. Details will be announced at the start of the season.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at
