FC Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena: Winning soccer thanks to perfect turf

On perfectly maintained turf, FC Bayern Munich stayed unbeaten in their first two home games of the season. The greenkeepers of FC Bayern Munich put the high quality of the sward for the club’s home matches in the Allianz Arena down in part to the garden tools of their Official Home and Garden Expert, Einhell.

Home strengths in the Allianz Arena

For FC Bayern Munich, the goal in the 2022/23 Bundesliga season has long been clear: The eleventh championship in a row! Given the strength of their favorite club on home turf, Bayern's fans, too, expect to see many victories “dahoam”. Last season FC Bayern Munich took top spot in the home wins table with 41 points.

An important prerequisite? The club’s strength at home combined with a pitch in perfect condition. When the players of FC Bayern Munich run onto the turf of the Allianz Arena, they are guaranteed the same quality of turf as on their training ground at Säbener Straße. That’s the primary responsibility of the greenkeeper team at FC Bayern Munich. Both in training and for the home matches, the grass is kept in the very best condition using the tools of Einhell Germany AG, Official Home and Garden Expert and Gold Partner of FC Bayern Munich. The sward is largely maintained using the battery-operated tools of Einhell’s Power X-Change series, which the greenkeepers particularly value for their ease of use. It goes without saying that the greenkeepers always try to prepare the turf for the matches in the best possible way. After all, the team needs to feel comfortable on it, the ball needs to roll quickly and the sight of such beautiful green grass should generate a passion for football – in both the players and the fans.

What may be of interest to all ambitious amateur gardeners is that on non-match days the grass is cut to a height of 25-26 millimeters, with a cut height of 24 millimeters on match day itself. To ensure the turf has just the right density, the greenkeepers still mow it using manual lawn mowers. This achieves an optimum cutting result. However, that makes the time taken for mowing considerably greater. Generally FC Bayern’s greenkeepers have finished with the grass in the Allianz Arena after three to four hours.

Work on the “hallowed turf” can be compared to a precise surgical procedure. In addition to the broad range of Einhell lawn mowers in operation at FC Bayern Munich, many other battery-operated tools and garden machines such as grass trimmers, hedge trimmers, leaf blowers, and push sweepers are used to keep the surface in the very best condition. The batteries not only make the machines handy, robust and reliable, but also mean they can be used in all weathers and at any time of year. 

We are proud that as a partner and Home and Garden Expert of FC Bayern Munich we can offer the club garden tools that will create the optimum conditions for the team at their place of work, the pitch,” says Andreas Kroiss, CEO of Einhell Germany AG.
