In most cases, management of sports teams around the world return ticket sales to their fans after bad seasons. Not the case for Bayern Munich’s most faithful this year. After locking up the Bundesliga title with six games remaining in the season with the Champions League and DFB Pokal title games still to play, Bayern Munich management will be returning all ticket purchases this season to their fans due to lack of competition, Yahoo! Sports has reported.
“And since we do not see supporters as house cats to be milked, we have decided to refund their money for what has turned out to be a season of one-sided exhibitions. After all, no one should have to pay to watch someone play FIFA 13 on amateur difficulty and clearly we do not need their money anyway. I certainly don’t want it. I don’t pay taxes, so I already have more money than I know what to do with. We are not greedy like the English,” Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness told reporters.
Confident? Cocky? Or just plain funny?
Hoeness just couldn’t resist to send a jab England’s way. Nonetheless, if you’re a Bayern supporter and went to some games this season, you have to be a happy camper.
