Aspire Zone’s outdoor football pitches have witnessed an influx of local, regional and international football fans as hundreds of keen spectators showed up to watch FC Bayern Munich’s first open training session on Wednesday. The German Bundesliga giants arrived in Doha last night for their eighth annual winter training camp in Doha, which will run until January 07.

This year’s training camp attracted FC Bayern Munich fans from numerous countries, including fan association members from Qatar and others who flew to Doha from Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Algeria and Kuwait.

Speaking on the sidelines of the training session, the President of the Kuwait-based FC Bayern Munich Fans Association, Mr. Mohammed Al Damkhi, said: “We have attended FC Bayern Munich’s training camp in Doha for the past six years and it’s become a key event on our agenda. Aspire Zone’s training camps are great and provide the ideal melting pot for football fans and their favourite football stars.”

FC Bayern Munich will hold their open training sessions at 11:00 am on Thursday (Jan 04), 10:30 am on Friday (Jan 05), and 10:00 am on Saturday (Jan 06) and Sunday (Jan 07). On Saturday evening, the team will also play a friendly match at 5:00 pm on Pitch 05 against Qatari club Al-Ahli SC.
