Bayern Munich and the swastika: A dark chapter in the club’s history

By Score More Bayern Munich was forced to use the swastika on its crest from 1938 to 1945, during the Second World War. The decision was made by the Nazi government, which was trying to control all aspects of German life, including sport. Bayern Munich was founded in 1900 and had always been an open club, regardless of race or religion. The club's president at the time, Kurt Landauer, was Jewish and the club had a large Jewish following. The Nazi government, led by Adolf Hitler, was antisemitic and anti-democratic. In 1933, Hitler came to power in Germany and began to persecute Jews and other groups he considered undesirable. In 1938, the Nazi government ordered Bayern Munich to adopt the swastika on its crest. Landauer, a man of principle, refused to obey the order. In retaliation, ...

Substitute Mathys Tel crossed from the left and found Goretzka free in the middle to fire what many presumed was the winner in the 86th minute. "It looked like we landed the lucky punch, but then we had the iffy decision against ...

RB Leipzig Secures Convincing 3-0 Victory Over Bayern Munich in German Super Cup, Despite Harry Kane’s Debut

  By Score More This Saturday, Bayern Munich suffered a resounding 0-3 defeat against RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup, even with Harry Kane making his debut for the Bavarians.
