How did you become a Bayern fan and what do you say to people when you support Bayern? I tend to get a lot of stick for it but it dont matter

I always wondered about this too. In many countries it's normal to support a foreign team, but in England football is really big.

I'd say around 49% support English teams (mostly Man United but many Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool fans), 49% support Italian teams (mostly Juve but many Milan and Inter), 1% support German teams (almost all of them Bayern), and maybe another 1% or perhaps less who support different teams.

Of course most of us have a local team as well. :)

I'm from Northern Ireland, but I did live in Germany in the late 90s and went to Bayern matches then.

Being over 50, I generally don't encounter much of the slagging-type conversations about teams that younger fans seem to encounter. Indeed, I find most fans (of other teams) appreciative if a chat with me fills them in on some Bayern and Bundesliga detail.

For me, I have visited Munich more than any other foreign city and all my friends know this, so I don't get much questions on why I support Bayern.

It's more awkward explaining to others, say at work as they don't really see the logic.

But I don't really care to be honest!

I've always liked football but when you see the fans on tv all singing and cheering for their team....I just couldn't find a team I could feel that way about. None of them seemed to click. Then in 2010 I was watching Germany's WC matches (I had a friend at the time who was half German) and loved watching them so that is when I started investigating the Bundesliga and now Bayern is one of my aspie obsessions :P

I do get questions like 'Liverpool or Everton?' when I tell people I like football and they get a bit confused when I say neither :P They don't question it when I say I like Bayern and my friends from choir always ask how Bayern are getting on when they are talking about how Liverpool are doing but I haven't come across anyone who was negative about it or anything.

I travelled around Europe about 5 years ago (Carnt believe 5 years have gone so fast) and alng the way i bumped into some Germans who were travelling as well so i tagged on with them, they so happened to be F.C Bayern fans so ive followed them ever since.

I think i got the better end of that deal as they are now fans of Everton in return :oops:
