Los Angeles Football Club and European and German giant Bayern Munichannounced that they will make a global development cooperation, under the name “Red & Gold Football” (“Red & Gold Football”), which becomes a platform for the development of high-level young talent, and a pathway to professional sports based in California.

Thanks to this initiative, it will be possible to see how the European powerhouse and the reigning champion of Major League Soccer will manage to establish a joint partnership based in Munich in order to train different talents that will be in the future as sports professionals.

“A partnership of this magnitude is the next step in our evolution as a club”said LAFC co-chairman and general manager John Thorrington. “We are very excited to work together with FC Bayern to identify and develop young talent in Southern California and beyond, and we believe that this relationship will give players of both systems the ability to maximize their potential and see a clear path to first team football”.

Both teams own 50 percent of the shares of “Red&Gold Football” and said company plans to further cooperation with other clubs and development academies around the world.

“FC Bayern will expand its promotion of young talent with Los Angeles Football Club. TO At the international level, football is developing rapidly, which is also evident in the transfer market. We see this partnership as an opportunity to strengthen FC Bayern in sports competition with the best clubs in Europe and the Bundesliga. The fact that the 2026 World Cup will be played mainly in the United States, where we already have an office in New York, makes Los Angeles an even more attractive option. I look forward to a boost in quality and young talent in Major League Soccer, which will have a positive impact on our society.” said Olver Kahn, CEO and Chairman of the Board of FC Bayern.
