BayernForum.com an Official Fan Club

Postby MUTU » Mon Feb 10, 2014 11:55 am

Dear fellow FC Bayern fans,

It is with great pleasure that I announce that we have been successful in convincing FC Bayern to change one of their policies and accept BayernForum.com as an official fan club. My short research leads me to believe that BayernForum.com will be the first Bayern Munich fan club in the world without physical premises.

What's pending?
- We need a minimum of 25 members. Read below on instructions how to apply.
- Once we submit memberships to FC Bayern, they will take around six weeks to process.
- Some time after we are an official fan club, FC Bayern will send me some merchandise for free which I can then send to members by post. They couldn't tell me what merchandise it would contain but gave a few examples: mousepads, lanyards, pins, stickers and balloons.
- Need to find a payment system with low commission. Any ideas please?
- Need to find where to print membership cards at a not-too-expensive cost.
- Need help designing the actual membership cards

What do you get if you apply?
- A membership card, which allows you to proudly demonstrate that you are an official Bayern fan club member
- 10% discount from the official online shop
- Something from the free merchandise (no guarantees here!)

How much does it cost?
As an introductory offer, it will cost €10 and expire at the end of next season. If for some reason, a problem stops us from successfully going through the whole process, your payment will be fully refunded. This is our guarantee.

How can I become a member?
Firstly, you need to register as a BayernForum.com user (free). Secondly, you need to pay to become a member. For now, no payment system is in place, but you can email me at mutu@bayernforum.com and I will give you instructions for payment.

Let's get this important chapter in BayernForum.com history kickstarted!

This does not seem too expensive for printing membership cards.

I've also found a link which claims that a store in Malta close to where I live offers printing services, but I haven't managed to load up the price list.

A friend of mine uses this for his antique business as a pay system, idk how reliable or cheap it is but im assuming it must be good if he uses it: Skrill Pay System

Thanks, looks decently priced. If you can get me details of the shop in Malta I'd appreciate it too.

Seems like it's for US merchants. I need to be paid in Euros.

Count me in.

How will you accept payments? Paypal??
I've still not made my account there. Indian Paypal is very policy restricted and I have always had apprehensions about creating an account there.

This sounds very interesting.

I've been thinking of becoming an individual member for some time - largely to get better access to ticket availability. Could you explain what the differences between individual membership and BayernForum.com membership might be?

Fair question.

The full advantages as in the official Bayern document:

1. Your ticket order for all home- and away matches receive preferential treatment.
2. When ordering tickets for home matches no administrative fees will be charged (only postal charges). This offer is only valid for collective orders for all fan club members submitted by the designated contact person or his representative. The order has to be submitted in written form. Please include your credit card details with expiry date.
3. We are happy to provide you with merchandising materials for charity events and recruitment of new fan club members if possible.
4. Fan clubs can apply to be visited by one of our players or by an official club representative at the annual Christmas party.
5. Fan clubs can submit reports about their activities which can be published in the fan section of the official Bayern Magazine.
6. The production of individualized merchandising materials for the fan club must be authorized by the fan club department.
7. Fan club members receive a 10% discount on all written merchandising orders (except for articles on sale).

Apart from these, I can tell you that registration on BayernForum.com is cheaper plus you would be supporting this community. The hosting is by no means cheap and this service is being provided for free. We can also organise our own events and have them mentioned on the official Bayern Magazine.

Thanks for the details, MUTU. I am very keen to take the BayernForum.com route, if it is at all feasible. I'd like to support BayernForum.com (and am already sorry that I dithered around and didn't help with the donations via the Bayern trikots offer). Count me in as a "very-likely".
