FC Bayern Brings Fans Closer to the Team with Apple Music Collaboration

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Music is an integral piece of any workout. Is it possible without? Yes, but it’s not going to be any fun. So when Germany’s leading FC Bayern Munich soccer team wanted to inspire their fans with the music that keeps the players motivated, they turned to Apple to get it down with their fast-growing Apple Music streaming service.

The first FC Bayern playlist has already gone live, and I must say the song choice is exceptional. After playing through the 15 tracks, it has me wanting to get my body moving, so I would say it is doing its job. If you are unsure, we’ve provided a sampler of the music below.

FC Bayern’s press release has all of the fun details:

From today, music fans will be able to get even closer to their favourite team and players from FC Bayern Munich with exclusive playlists and content, curated especially for Apple Music. From inspirational and uplifting songs to listen to during training to celebratory playlists post-match, there will be music for everyone to enjoy throughout the season. The first team playlist is available now. Alongside exclusive content and videos, Apple Music will also be FC Bayern Munich’s music service of choice.

Music has always played an important role in sport, helping athletes and footballers train and providing anthems for fans on the terraces. Bayern Munich star Mats Hummels proves just how important music is to him in the current Deutsche Telekom and Apple Music commercial in order to prepare for a match.

Apple Music is a single, intuitive app that combines the best ways to enjoy music including your music library, a revolutionary music streaming service offering access to over 40 million songs, radio led by the flagship Beats 1 station, and playlists curated by world class music experts. Twenty million subscribers are already listening to new music first and rediscovering old favourites with playlists including Chart Hits, Relax and the best of the week.

In addition to today’s music news, it’s also been announced Beats by Dr. Dre will continue to be the official sound partner of FC Bayern Munich providing the club with premium headphones and speakers.
