Two trophies! Two teams! 20,000 fans! Bayern’s championship celebration reached its climax on Sunday afternoon with the traditional team and trophy presentation on Munich Town Hall balcony. “This club is unique, as we’re proving again today,” said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge from “the world’s greatest balcony.” Javi Martinez was also enjoying his third title celebrations as well as first-time champion Sebastian Rode was brimming with emotion: “You can’t describe the feeling. Super cool!”
Following last night’s official team party at the Postpalast and a few hours sleep, the newly-crowned champions arrived at the Town Hall at around 2 pm – and for the first time in the club’s history the stars were not alone, because the FCB Women also won their national championship this season. “We’re very grateful we can be here,” commented captain Melanie Behringer, one of four players specially helicoptered in from Germany’s pre-Women’s World Cup training camp.
