Each mask has its own unique design. All of them are made of scarves originally intended for distribution at the Champions League game at Allianz Arena, where “Bavaria” met with London’s “Chelsea”. The scarves were made to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the Munich club.
“As part of this campaign, we want to show that FC Bavaria is doing its best to cope with the pandemic in an exemplary and disciplined manner, following the call of Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder,” said club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. – At the same time, we are pleased to be able to contribute to the excellent initiative of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka,” he said.
“This is great proof that our specialists are role models in society and show solidarity in this crisis,” he added.
The initiative announced by German footballers Kimmich and Goretzka of Bavaria and Munich to raise funds to help charitable, social or medical institutions stranded by the coronavirus pandemic has found strong support in Germany. For example, former world champion Mats Hummels wrote on his Twitter: “Very cool action! We, the footballers, want to be a role model and show with our lives how we understand solidarity”.
