For decades, Bayern fans in the Chicagoland area have struggled to find a home. With the founding of this fan club, we aim to bring all Bayern fans in the tri-state area together under one roof, one name. This club was founded so that these fans would have a reliable place to watch every game, while celebrating the victories as a team.
Becoming a fan is as simple as filling out our member registration form. Within 24-48 hours, you should receive an email from Bayern asking you to confirm your membership. Simply click the link and you'll be registered as a member! Aside from that, we encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
Registered members of our fan club have numerous advantages:
To take advantage of any of these benefits listed above, please see our President Tyler Faivre on the next gameday.
No, members of official fan clubs are not required to be members of FC Bayern in order to join.
We meet every match day at Cleos Chicago. The folks at Cleos have been kind enough to give us a reliable place to watch all Bundesliga, Pokal and Champions League games, almost always in HD and with sound. A Facebook event is generally created before each match day and details all of the information you'll need to find us. Additionally, information about Cleos' location can be found on our contact page.
Free parking is generally pretty easy to find on the streets, though you may have to walk a couple blocks. Alternatively, bus line 66 should drop you off almost right in front of Cleos. Finally, just for reference, a taxi ride from Union Station would cost you about $14 one way.
All orders are shipped via USPS. Typical delivery time within the Chicago area is generally a few days, but could take up to 5-10 business days. If you have questions regarding your order, please feel free to contact us.
Yes, you're welcome to pick up your order in person at Cleos (see our contact page for the address). Please contact us in advance if you plan to do so.
We accept PayPal as a primary form of payment, though you may also pay with a credit or debit card without setting up a PayPal account. Additionally we do accept both cash and PayPal payments if you're picking up your order in-person at Cleos.
