The 2017 Paulaner Fan Dream finale: “Football vs. Basketball” with FC Bayern München stars and fans

What a premiere! For the Paulaner Fan Dream “Football vs. Basketball”, the football stars of FC Bayern München came face to face for the first time with the pros of the FC Bayern basketball team at the end of November. During the finale at the Audi Dome, everything revolved around the question: “Who is the best Bayern team on the ball?” 

To determine an answer, fans from across the world reinforced FC Bayern’s football team and its team of giants. Thousands of men and women from across the globe applied to fulfil the Paulaner Fan Dream of “playing side by side in a team with the stars.” 

For each team, ten amateurs from Europe, the US and Asia were able to fulfil this dream. Together with world champions Mats Hummels, Javi Martínez, Sebastian Rudy and Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich on the one hand, and the basketball pros Alex King, Reggie Redding, Anton Gavel and Karim Jallow on the other, they were able to show off their skills in the disciplines football, basketball and beer-stein holding.

Both teams were led by FC Bayern München legends: Giovane Elber led the football players, while Steffan Hamann was the team captain of the basketball players. After a thrilling duel, moderator Stephan Lehmann announced the results in the Audi Dome to enthusiastic attendees and numerous members of the press: A draw!
